Sorry But If They Actually Cared, They’d Act Like It


Stop making excuses for people who fail to keep their promises. Don’t waste your time in people who don’t stay true to their words and decide to leave instead. The truth is if they actually cared they would have stayed. If they wanted to be with you, they’d have kept their promises. Because the ones that care about you won’t leave you hanging, they won’t lie to you or manipulate you…

They would never put themselves into a situation where they’d risk losing you. Because that’s the last thing they want.

Yet, here you are – gifting your heart and soul to someone who doesn’t give anything in return. When will you learn that people who do love and appreciate you will fu*king put an effort into the relationship?

Don’t waste your time trying to understand why someone isn’t trying. Don’t make excuses for someone’s leaving you alone. Don’t kid yourself into thinking that a “connection” like you two have cannot be one-sided. Well, it can – and it mainly happens because you keep repeating the mistake of not letting go of someone who is already one foot out the door.

Yes, I understand that the last thing you want to do is give up but hear me out. The one who cares about you will show you with actions, and not just words. And anytime you decide to go back to someone who didn’t appreciate you the first time – you are telling yourself that you are not worthy of having something special and that you don’t deserve to have a love that is healthy and real.

Stop chasing after someone who has already shown you they don’t care. Just stop.

Yes, it hurts. Yes, it sucks – but there is no other way. You must leave them because you owe to yourself that much.

So, leave them. Walk away and firmly shut the door behind you. Don’t look back. Instead, look inside you. Delve into the crannies and nooks of your psyche. Because, the thing is – you need to tear yourself apart in order to build yourself again into a whole new improved person.

Do it. Stop lying to yourself that deep down they love you. Because with the one who truly loves and appreciates you, you won’t have to second guess anything or trying to come up with excuses for why they mistreat you. The person who cares about you will always, always, treat you with the utmost respect and love.

The right person will not let you go. Their heart will be open, and you’ll always know where you stand with them. And instead of torturing yourself over someone who is flaky, wait for the one that is worth waiting for.
