Stop wasting your time on the guy who doesn’t call when he says he will. Stop allowing him to push back your plans because all that says is what he’s doing is more important than your time. Stop allowing him to walk all over you and pay no respect to your morals or beliefs. Stop sticking up for a guy who would never defend you.

Stop wasting your time on the guy who makes you an option instead of a priority.

You don’t need a guy like that, and you shouldn’t want a guy like that either.

I know it’s harder to walk away than you’d like to admit. You shouldn’t miss him, but you do. You shouldn’t allow him to come and go from your life when he pleases but sometimes you just want him back so much you allow him to walk right in when you should have slammed the door in his face.

Love is complicated, it’s hard and messy. It makes you do irrational things because you can’t think straight when you’re in love. You know what you should do, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to because you want what feels good in the moment, even if you know it’s toxic and suffocating for you.

You would take that night of happiness with him in your bed beside you than another night of loneliness, even though you know the next few nights will be even lonelier because when he leaves he always takes all the strength you’ve built up with him when he walks out the front door.

You deserve more than that, you deserve so much more than that and you know that.

So dig deep, get stronger every day on your own, cut the ties off from the guy who mistreats you and realize you deserve to be a “yes” instead of a “maybe” period. You deserve to be a complete thought, the final destination, the most important person to someone. You don’t deserve to be an after thought, a stop along the road, the person who is there when it’s convenient for him.

You deserve the world and someone out there wants to give it to you, but not this guy. This guy can’t see what’s right in front of him and you don’t deserve to suffer anymore because he’s not paying attention.

You matter, your heart matters and your feelings matter. Love yourself enough to know that and respect that. Don’t keep putting your heart back into the palm of someone’s hands who is constantly abusing it.

Sweet girl, you will find someone who loves you wholly and completely, someone who will make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else, someone who feels like home. That love is real and it is out there for you. You just need to separate yourself from the guy who can’t see it.

Stop wasting your time on this guy, the guy who has failed you and let you down over and over again. It’s time to forget him and love yourself until you find someone who deserves you. TC mark
