Of all the breakups I’ve gone through, the ones who treated me the worst were the ones who ended up begging to be with me again.
They were beyond reason, transcending common sense and what is expected out of a decent human being. There was just so much anger, bitchiness and hostility, and I didn’t have to contribute to it.
When I hit my tipping point and called it quits, they tilted over and started acting all sad and shit. They then, went beyond expectations to show how much they were in deep regret in losing me, which was bizarre because the switch was so damn fast.
That’s the thing: If you intentionally choose to fuck up and hurt others, the pain later on would always be greater.
The guilt, shame and regret from fully knowing you brought it upon yourself is what’s hardest to get over.
You had power once. And then you realize you aren’t so powerful after all.
That is why you shouldn’t be asshole to others.
