and began to cry. I had never seen my ex girlfriend cry until now.
I know my weakness, I have “hero syndrome”. I want to be the hero, the one that saves her from all the bad things this world will throw at her. I want to see through the situation & see us standing tall.
This syndrome is to my detriment…
"You will give your time until your heart says enough"
It was very dear to her, the words carried the weight of her world. She whispered the first line then said “Chris I cant do it”. That voice to this day sticks with me. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so heartbroken for someone else. I wish I could have taken all her pain, I wish I could have done more.
She buried her hands into her face… For a moment I froze, not knowing how to approach the moment. I only remember hugging her silently for a minute before walking outside.
