The Brutally Honest Reason Why I’m Cutting You Out Of My World

I am cutting you out of my world because history does not mean anything to me. It doesn’t make a difference to me if we have known each other for years. It doesn’t matter whether we have been through hell and back together. Our past is irrelevant if you are treating me poorly in the present. I am not looking backwards. I am only looking forwards.

I am cutting you out of my world because I don’t have any sense of loyalty toward toxic family or friends. I am not going to keep someone around who makes me feel shitty about myself. I am not going to put myself through more stress than I deserve, just because I feel guilty about leaving. I am going to do what I have to do, no matter how bad it makes me look.

I am cutting you out of my world because I feel like we have reached our expiration date. I am not under the assumption that relationships last forever. Most things end. I do not have a problem with goodbyes. I do not mind removing someone from my life if that means I am going to end up happier and more fulfilled.

I am cutting you out of my world because you serve no purpose. You do not bring me happiness. You do not cause me comfort. In fact, you have the opposite effect. You bring stress. Sadness. Disappointment. You make my days worse instead of better.

I am cutting you out of my world because the way you treat me is unacceptable. Your apologies do not hold any weight if you keep making the same mistakes over and over again. I have ran out of forgiveness. I wish you the best, but I am no longer going to watch your life unfold. I am going to put you in my rearview mirror and forge my own path ahead.

I am cutting you out of my world because you have ran out of chances. I have already given you the benefit of the doubt one too many times. I have allowed you to hurt me without any repercussions. I have stayed when I should have left. But, unlike you, I will not make the same mistake again. I have to walk away to preserve my own sanity.

I am cutting you out of my world because you have zapped all of my energy. You have drained my desire to deal with you. I cannot fight for your affection any longer. I cannot keep sacrificing my happiness in order to keep you around. It’s time for me to place myself first. It’s time for our long awaited goodbye.

I am cutting you out of my world because I have reached a realization. A realization that my standards are too low. A realization that I should expect more from the people surrounding me. A realization that you are not someone who deserves a spot in my phone, my thoughts, or my future. TC mark
