Someday, for sure; they will know your worth. They will know what they had, when they had you. They will be able to connect the dots, they could never figure out in spite of your persistent efforts. They will then be able to appreciate your love and will long for that shower of affection.
But you’ll be long gone from their lives then. You’d have forgiven them, forgotten how it felt like being shattered and feeling inadequate.
They might not tell you. And it’s okay. Not everything needs to be communicated, especially one’s embarrassments and mistakes are toughest to admit. They might tell you, someday; when you’ve even lost track of that time and pain. They might even carry that feeling to their grave and never ever tell you.
My dear, it isn’t worth your time to wish or guess whether or not they will realize. Realization at times is slow, painfully slow and sometimes in a paradigm moment. Time is powerful. When they realize it someday, they will see how you gave your best and beyond and how amazingly you treated and trusted them. They will learn that the void you left, is irreplaceable.
They’d think of you and your life and wonder if you ever think of them. And, you will sneeze at the moment they recollect the fond memories you shared. They will understand why you did things a certain way and what were your real intentions.
If you ever touched their heart, even the slightest; if you loved them with a true heart, they will figure it out. And it’s not for you. It’s for them. Let time take its time. And you my love, have a pure heart and be kind. Let it go, if you know you’ve done your absolute best and beyond. Trust the plans life has for you and waste not a moment in regret or bad wishes for them. No need to gamble on when or whether or not they will value you. They will, may be silently; may be when you least expect it.
Be kind and loving to your own self and pardon yourself. It’s okay if someone rejects you, fails to appreciate your efforts or breaks your blind trust. It’s their loss, not yours. And this is not a consolation.
They will figure you out, for sure; someday.
