Whatever You Do, Don’t Go Back To The Person Who Hurt You

Don’t Go Back To Him — You’re Better Off On Your Own

This is for you. The woman who is tired of putting on a brave face and a smile when deep down inside, she is breaking. I know you. I was you a little while ago. I was exhausting myself thinking where I went wrong and why it was so easy to leave me after all the love I gave to him.

You feel it now. All the hurt, all the pain, all the emptiness. You spend your nights staring at your phone, hoping he would call. Watching him on social media. Allowing him to completely consume your thoughts and it’s killing you.

You need to shift the focus from him and onto you. I know you have heard this many times, but you must understand that the man who once hurt you is not the man you should expect to have a future with someday.

He is not the same man you fell in love with. The man who stole your heart was kind, handsome, loving, and full of respect for you. The man over whom you are crying is not him.

He broke your heart. He abandoned you. You didn’t do anything wrong. You loved him with all your heart and yet he chose to leave you. Let his decision to be your guide to never go back to him.

He doesn’t deserve you. Not him, not anyone who thinks is okay to fool another person into loving them and then breaking their hearts and crushing their hopes deserves a loyal, loving, and good-hearted person like you.

And if and when you feel tempted to go back to him, remember the blows, remember the pain, remember the agony, and stop yourself from doing it. Because if you do it, you’ll quickly regret it. He won’t change. He won’t suddenly love you the way you want to be loved. And once again, you will hurt yourself from giving him another chance when you knew deep down that you shouldn’t.

Stand your ground and fight for yourself. Protect yourself because if you don’t, no one else will. And whatever you do, never go back to the man who has shown you he is a hurtful person.
