When He Says He Doesn’t Love You Anymore, Let Him Go


When someone tells you, “I don’t love you anymore’, you have reached the point of no return. No matter how many times you try to convince him otherwise, and no matter how many times you tell him you are the love of his life, he is not going to come back to you.

He doesn’t love you anymore.

And at first, it’s going to be a really hard pill to swallow. How could he not love you? How could the person who you thought was the love of your life, suddenly tell you that it’s over? For good.

It seems like a joke.

Or like you are in a horrible, nightmare that you can’t wake up from. And it’s hard to even comprehend the words he so loudly spit at you. “I don’t love you anymore’ will forever be those words that nobody ever wants to hear.

But, they were said to you. By the person you thought was your forever. He said it so nonchalantly. He said it so casually. And you are just a mess, crumpled on the floor. A shell of your former self.

So, what do you do? Do you try to win him back? Do you frantically try to remind him of what he is about to lose? Do you beg for him to change his mind?

No. You need to let him go. You need to let that love go.

I’m not saying it’s going to fade away from your mind easily. I’m not saying that that love is ever going to die. But, you have no choice. You need to let that love and that person go. Because unfortunately, there is no turning back from the words, “I don’t love you”.

It’s going to be hard. It’s going to be excruciating at times. And I’m not going to sugar coat this, it will probably be one of the most painful times in your life. But you’ve got to keep going. You’ve got to keep trying.

Trust me, he’s not worth it. Why would you want to chase someone who doesn’t care for you anymore?

Why would you want to keep hanging onto a thread that has already been broken?

You are worth so much more than that. You are worth more than loving a boy who isn’t going to love you back. So go ahead, and let him go. It’s not going to be a walk in the park. But it will be worth it in the end. You won’t get the boy. But you will gain back yourself. And your pride. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
