It’s Time To Let Go, He’s Gone And He’s Not Coming Back


He left you because he didn’t want to be there.

I’m sorry that sounds so harsh, but the harsh truth is you don’t want to be with someone like him anyway.

You don’t want to be with someone who just drops you without warning, you don’t want to be with someone who packs up and leaves when things get tough. You don’t want to be with someone who was never really there in the first place.

I know you might think he’s everything you’ve ever wanted, I know you still feel a sting in your heart hoping he will realize he messed up and will come back asking for your forgiveness, but more than likely he won’t. He has moved on and left you in the back with nothing but tears and questions. He has moved on and he isn’t looking back.

You have to pick yourself up and realize that a person like that isn’t someone you want to be with. You have to be strong. You don’t want that and you don’t deserve that.

You are worth more than being ghosted or waiting hours upon hours for a text message you’ll never receive. You are more than unanswered questions and feeling hopeless.

He isn’t going to text you; he isn’t going to show up at your door with flowers and an apology, he isn’t going to do anything like that. He’s gone and he’s not coming back.

You have to stop clinging to the idea that he was worth it or that you could change him because honestly he isn’t changing for you and he probably wont change for the next five or twenty or however many girls he has in front of him before he finds someone that makes him want to settle down.

It isn’t you, it’s not that you’re not good enough, you’re just not for him. Think about all the guys you rejected or tried to like because you knew they liked you, it just didn’t work. Sometimes you like someone and they don’t like you back, and sometimes it’s the other way around.

You can’t help who you fall for and who you don’t, it’s just the way life works sometimes.

Emotions are tricky and they can suck from time to time, but don’t get caught up on the guy who left you. Don’t hold on to him because I promise you he isn’t coming back, he’s long gone now and he’s only looking forward.

You can do better than him; you can find someone who actually wants to be part of your life. You will find someone who actually wants to be part of your life.

But for now, think of the good times if the memories comfort you. Think about all the laughter shared and the memories you spent together. Or think of the anger you’re feeling if that will make it easier. Think about all the times he left you disappointed and realize you’re actually better off without him.

No matter what you have to think to get over him, just make sure you get over him.

You can’t live in the past forever and you need to know there are better days to come ahead.

There are better times to come with more laughs to be shared and new memories to be formed.

So please, stop holding on to someone who isn’t coming back, you have to let him go. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
