The beginning of my relationship was phenomenal. I just knew this guy had to be the one. I was ecstatic. I finally found the man of my dreams. He was very attentive and caring. He seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say, my likes and my dislikes. He did things to show me that he thought of me and my well being. He showed me the best version of himself. Once he got me hooked and I fell in love with him, I started to see someone different. He wasn’t the man he was in the beginning of our relationship. He was dismissive. He didn’t care whether we spent time together or not. He didn’t consider my feelings. He blamed me for every issue that occurred in our relationship. It didn’t matter how great our relationship was when we first started out. In the end, all that mattered was how the relationship ended. The relationship ended with much pain. We actually had good times throughout the relationship, but the only things I can remember are the bad times. The relationship ended so crazy, I can’t see past that pain. I went from being in love to not wanting to even hear his name. Again, it wasn’t how the relationship started that had the greatest impact but how it ended. Remember, it’s not how you start but it’s how you finish.
