You keep looking for answers to justify why it didn’t work out and why it probably never will.

You ask your friends and maybe a stranger, but most importantly, you ask yourself. You question why you weren’t good enough and what made him want her instead.

You cry and you sigh and you go over it in your head a hundred times. You fight with yourself. You hate yourself.

But at some point, you have to stop. You have stop wondering and waiting and asking, and just accept that what happened, happened. He did what he did because he chose to do it, and that’s the only answer you need.

And if you can’t accept it, learn from it. Become stronger and wiser and know that although you didn’t get what you wanted with him, you’re going to get something so much greater from someone else someday.

"Feminism is not about who opens the jar.

It is not about who pays for the date. It is not about who moves the couch. It is not about who kills the bugs. It is not about who cooks the dinner. It’s not even about who stays home with the kids, as long as the decision was made together, after thinking carefully about your situation and coming to an agreement that makes sense for your particular marriage and family.

It is about making sure that nobody ever has to do anything by “default” because of their gender. The stronger person should move the couch. The person who enjoys cooking more, has more time for it, and/or is better at it should do the cooking. Sometimes the stronger person is male, sometimes not. Sometimes the person who is best suited for cooking is female, sometimes not. You should do what works.

But it is also about letting people know that it is okay to change. If you’re a woman who wants to become stronger, that’s great. If you’re a man who wants to learn how to cook, that’s also great. You might start out with a relationship where the guy opens all the jars and the girl cooks all the meals, but you might find that you want to try something else. So try it."
