The other day my ex sent me a text saying “I don’t want us to hate each other”. My response was simple. “I don’t hate you”. My ex then sends “Well how do you feel about me” I then opened a can of feelings with my response. “I don’t hate you, but I do not like you right now”.
Did I mean for that to come off rude?
No, but was I trying to get my point across?
That simple text message lead into a book of responses from both parties and at the end of the day we are not together because of ourselves. It’s no one elses fault but our own. I spent all summer mad at my ex because I felt that I was not apart of the reason for the demise of our relationship.
Well was it one-sided?
Did I think I was completely innocent?
And I was in a complete DENIAL. Plain and simple.
The moral of the story is to step outside of yourself when a relationship ends (romantic or friends) to see the part you played.. Everyone has a side and everything is not always the other persons fault.
It’s also important to know yourself and to have boundaries for what you will and will not accept from others.
People treat you how you allow them, if you do not know how to have a conversation without getting upset or cursing…Well something is wrong.
Learn how to treat others and accept nothing but the best.. Of course you need to make sure you’re giving back what you want from others.
Tell me how you deal with ending relationships and how you allow others to treat you.
Thank you for reading.
