Please Don’t Text Me

You know I’m living the life I always wanted, with a man who truly makes me feel whole, who makes my heart happy. You know I’m doing the things in my life that you wanted no part of when we were together. I’m traveling, growing, trying new things, and taking risks. I’m living my life the way that I was meant to, and I’m doing it happily without you by my side.

So, please, don’t text me.

Don’t text me behind your new girlfriend’s back, like you used to do to me with all your “friends.” Learn from what you did to me. I hope you’re becoming a better person, the one I knew you had the potential to be. Stop taking the easy way out.

Don’t text me “how are you doing?” when you know I’m great. Don’t text me asking superficial questions, trying to get a feel for if I miss you, because I don’t. Don’t text me asking what I’ve been up to, because my answer will not involve anything we used to do. Those days are behind me, where they should be. 

Please, spare yourself the time.

Don’t ruin my day.

At one point I really loved you. Sadly, you never returned that love to me and I’ve come to terms with that. I don’t have any grudges against you, or place blame on you anymore. I’ve accepted you as a learning lesson. The universe had a much bigger plan for me, and because we didn’t work out my life fell into place just the way it was meant to, and I’m thankful for that.

The next time you feel the urge to text me, asking me how I’m doing, please don’t. Stop, take a minute, and think about what you’re doing. If you ever had an ounce of love for me, then think about it. If you ever loved me at any point then my happiness should matter, and when you text me, you ruin that.

Text your current girlfriend, and ask her how her day is going, just please, don’t text me. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
