After I was left, I experienced a pain even more grave than the pain of being left. The person I’d been seeing and who had ended the relationship started contacting me a year later. He was being really nice. I was SO flattered that he still thought of me and seemed to be interested. Yeah! He can’t live without me! Boy, was I a dummy.
He wanted to step right back in and I opened the door to it. He was texting me constantly, remembered my birthday and sent me a card, etc. He lived out of town and when he came into town he really started texting me, wanting to see me.
How flattered was I! I thought that I was so “fantastic” he really could not get over me. He’s gone out there and seen how lousy it was and now he’s back! Oh. My. God. What a moron am I!! He stepped back into my life on His Terms, which I readily accepted. AND THEN YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. He stepped right back out. I am back to being alone, and this time is even worse than the last because I Should Have Known Better.
So, I am left once again to pick up the pieces. I am licking the wounds of How Could He Be So Callous. It’s like he Held My Heart, then Ripped It Out, Then Stomped On It, Then Shoved It Back In. And then he did it again!!!!
Please do not fall for the “I’ve changed and want you back” routine. Stay strong and move forward. There is a saying, “Forward Ever, Backward Never”. Please heed it.
