I Wish You Would Stop Going Back To Him

I know he is a good guy. I know you care about him. I know you cannot get him out of your head, no matter how hard you try.

But I wish you would stop going back to him. I wish you would realize you deserve so much more. I wish you would hold out for the kind of relationship you deserve.

You should not let him walk in and out of your life whenever he wishes when it causes you so much pain. You keep alternating between loving him and hating him. It seems like every few weeks you are complaining about how confusing he is and swearing you are finally done with him. But you are never done.

Whenever he gives you attention again, you fall right back to square one. You know he isn’t going to change, but you pretend there is a chance. You have given him so many opportunities he never deserved. You have forgiven him when he didn’t deserve forgiveness.

If he cared about you as much as you care about him, then he wouldn’t have lost touch with you for so long. He wouldn’t have distanced himself from you. He wouldn’t have pushed you away.

It doesn’t matter that he is trying to come back now. You don’t have to give him a chance to make up for what he’s done. You can call it quits. You can end this right now.

But it seems like no matter what he does, no matter how long he leaves, you allow him to come right back. He has never left your heart. You are still enamored with him.

Even though you think he could be the one, I wish you would stop going back to him. I wish you would put an end to the back-and-forth. I wish you would find closure so you could finally move on and discover someone who treats you right all of the time, not half of the time.

You shouldn’t have to spend months missing him and wondering whether he is going to come back while he has fun with other girls. You shouldn’t allow yourself to be placed second when you deserve to be first. You deserve someone who would never leave you. You deserve consistency and respect.

I know you like him. I know you have a good time whenever you are together. I know you have your heart set on ending up with him.

But I wish you were able to take a step back and see he is not worthy of your time. You are blinded by your feelings for him. You keep taking him back, even though he has run out of chances by now.

You  are beautiful. You are strong. You are a catch. There is no reason for you to accept anything less than the best, which is why I don’t understand why you keep running back to him.

I wish you wouldn’t settle for his games. I wish you would give up on him and find someone new. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
