I Don’t Want You In My Life If You Don’t Want To Be Here


If me inviting you to dinner at my parent’s house is too much for you, then I really don’t want you to come. If me asking you to come grocery shopping with me is too much of a hassle then sit at home. If me asking you to talk my dog for a walk is interfering with you playing Xbox then I hope you lose.

Because honestly, if doing things with me is too much for you I don’t want you in my life.

I don’t want to hear your excuses that you had a long day because we all have long days. We all are working our asses off in this world just to get by. But if being involved in the things I do in my life is too much for you don’t get upset when I tell you goodbye.

Because that’s all that’s left to do, right?

If you don’t want to be part of my life then there’s no sense of me sticking around, there’s no point in nagging you and begging you to come. If you don’t want to be around then I’ll find someone who will, or maybe I won’t and I’ll just become better at living with my own company. I’m already heading in that direction and being on my own isn’t that bad.

So why stick around with you? I might as well make if official by saying goodbye.

After all it’s just like they say, it’s better to be alone than with someone who makes you feel alone and you’ve been doing a damn good job of making me feel alone.

While I’m spending all this time bending over backwards for you to show no effort. It’s disheartening and it’s not fair.

So I’m doing what I do best and I’m leaving, and it’s kind of breaking my heart because this time I tried. This time I really tried, I wanted things to work with you and they did, in the beginning, they always do in the beginning. But then I became too much for you, I became a distraction from your life for trying to involve you in mine and to be fair, I don’t want that and I don’t need that.

I deserve someone who genuinely gives a shit.

I deserve someone who cares about me and my life. I deserve someone who I don’t have to bribe to come with me on a walk, but instead wants to come, who maybe even asks me to come.

I’m done trying to motivate you to do the things you clearly don’t want to do, I’m over breaking my back for someone who doesn’t even lift a finger unless it’s concerning to himself.

If you don’t want to be in my life that’s fine, but at least be man enough to admit it.
At least own up to the fact that me being in your life isn’t what you want right now, but I know you won’t do that. So it’s time for me to walk away because I deserve better than someone who’s giving me a half-hearted love and I know that.

I don’t want you in my life if you don’t want to be there.

Oh, and you’re welcome for being a decent enough human to end this. You can get back to your life now. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
