You tried to fix things because that’s the type of person you are – always trying to fix what’s broken, always hanging on because your hearts too big. But he didn’t care. He didn’t put the effort in. He didn’t show you that you mattered anymore.
He knows you deserve more and he’s scared you’ll find it so he keeps you hanging on by being the one who cares less because the one who cares less always has the most control. He is manipulating you. He is doing what he can to make you stay, to beg for his attention, to make you feel like you need him.
