We always get to read about those who have been left, but what about those who had to leave?
I walked away from him. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
We were in a relationship for a while. The fact that we spent so much time together suddenly became the only reason we stayed together.
It was like there was no point in having a relationship anymore, but we just didn’t want to admit that we’d wasted so much time.
What should I have done? Wasted even more?
He wasn’t the man I was supposed to end up with, so I walked away.
If I had stayed in that relationship, I would have only ended up being married to the wrong man.
The fact that I walked away from him doesn’t mean that I didn’t love him. I cared about him deeply, but I hadn’t been happy for a long time.
I walked away from him because I was scared, even though I loved him.
It scared me that I was about to promise a future to someone I couldn’t have a future with.
He wasn’t husband material, and I was aware of that from the start, but I didn’t want to accept it until the end.
Eventually, I had to face the fact that I would never be happy if I stayed with him.
I walked away from him because he always wanted me to change. It felt like I was never good enough for him, and he couldn’t love me for who I was.
He was never satisfied, no matter how hard I tried to be the person he wanted me to be. I lost myself in the process.
He never wanted to change anything about himself, but he expected me to become the woman of his dreams.
I walked away from him because he never put me first. Everything else was more important to him than me.
It made me feel like I was only an option to him, and I could never settle for a man who doesn’t make me a priority.
His friends, his job, his family, and his hobbies all meant to him more than I did.
I walked away from him because he was never sure about me. He would threaten to walk away whenever things weren’t going his way.
I didn’t threaten to leave, I simply left and did what he couldn’t.
The truth is, I was tired of always wondering when he’d really walk away and I never felt safe in the relationship.
I walked away from him because he would always compare me to other women.
All of them seemed to be better than me, and it made me lose my self-esteem.
Another woman cooks every day, another woman makes more money, another woman dresses up more often, so why can’t you?
When he asked me things like that, I just wanted to tell him that he should be with another woman.
I walked away from him because he made me cry more than he made me laugh. I spent so many sleepless nights crying because of our awful fights.
He always had to be right, and he was never the first one to apologize.
It forced me to be the one who apologized even when I had done nothing wrong.
I walked away from him because he didn’t let me have a life outside of the relationship. Even though he never made me a priority, I had to put him first.
He didn’t like my friends and family. Whenever I wanted to spend time with someone else, he was jealous.
Whenever we were apart, I had to convince him that I wasn’t with some other man.
I walked away from him because he always doubted my love. No matter how much love I showed him, he needed me to prove it over and over again.
He never really understood how much he meant to me, no matter how clear it was. Constantly having to prove my love for him made me tired of loving him.
I walked away from because he only gave me crumbs of his affection.
It made me beg for his love and attention, and they are things that you should never have to beg for.
He would always tell me that I needed to deserve his love. Even though I was foolish enough to try, love is not something you need to deserve.
I walked away from him because we didn’t have healthy communication. He would never talk about his feelings or listen to how I felt.
Whenever he wasn’t happy, he would simply give me the silent treatment. It made me always wonder about what was going on in his mind.
I walked away from him because he never really listened to what I had to say. It felt like I was talking to a wall.
He would never remember the little things I told him about that were important to me. It made me feel like I wasn’t important to him.
I walked away from him because he was never there for me when I needed him the most. When things got tough, I never had his support.
I had to go through everything alone because he would simply turn his back on me when I needed him. He never even gave me a shoulder to cry on.
I walked away from him because he was never willing to put any effort into the relationship.
It forced me to be the only one who tried to make our relationship work.
Whenever there was a problem, I was the only one who tried finding a solution.
I got tired of doing that and if I hadn’t done, we would have broken up long before we did.
I walked away from him because he wasn’t the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
He would have made me even more miserable, and no matter how much I loved him, I had to love myself more.
Ultimately, I walked away from him because I deserved better.
