Why “I fell out of love” is the lamest excuse

You fell out of love, because?

One doesn’t wake up in the morning and say, “Oh my gosh. I don’t love him/her anymore.”

If that ain’t lame, then it’s just weak and pathetic.

But why do many people use this excuse to break up with someone?

Maybe because it’s easy to say, it’s brief — it sums up everything.

Like the fling you started with another person. Or the cheating and flame that started from flirtation. Or maybe the feeling of being fed up and you just can’t tell the other person how you feel. Or the unexpected or long-term friendship that just caught fire.

The insecurities. The lies. The competition. The disagreements. The hate.

But whatever the real reason is, it’s lame and it makes you weak.

Weak for not being able to confront the truth by telling yourself that you just fell out of love.

Weak for not being able to admit your faults.

Weak for not being able to dig deep into the real reason as to why you can’t take it anymore.

And weak for being unfair to the other person whose life you’ve entered and now, messed up.

Saying you fell out of love is the easy way out. The easier option that makes you the frail.

If you want to end your relationship with someone, be brave enough to admit the things that you have to. One way or another, this will haunt you for the rest of your life. More so, people will find it difficult to trust someone like you.

But if you can’t be the bigger person, then I hope the words “I fell out of love” won’t break you in the future.

‘Cause I tell you, being on the other end hurts like hell.

It sucks. It really does.

One thought on “Why “I fell out of love” is the lamest excuse

  1. I fully empathize with your sentiment here. Just had that happen so I was blindsided and felt the litany of ‘reasons’ defaulted to failure to being honest with ones own self. Good job pointing out the inefficiency of the excuse: fell out of love
