Things I Shouldn’t Say About My Ex

To be a better person, there are a lot of things you shouldn’t say about your ex. You want to be better, you don’t want to be bitter.

But that doesn’t mean you don’t think the thoughts that are considered little. The thoughts that would make you seem like less of a person. Because you’ve been hurt and all you can feel is hate and sadness.

You try and say things like “good for him” and “I’m happy for you.” But you’re not happy for anyone, you’re not even happy yourself just yet.

So I shouldn’t say it, but I wish your next relationship would end just as shitty as ours. I hope you get your heart broken and your whole life becomes a mess.

And I shouldn’t say it, but I hope your career goes down the drain. I hope you start to think that you’ve only gotten as far as you have because of me.

I really shouldn’t say it, but I want your friends to turn their back on you. To see the careless person that turned his back on me.

I shouldn’t say it, but I want you to want me. I want you to realize you’ve made a mistake and what we had is what you need.

I shouldn’t say those things because they make me look bitter, bitchy, shallow, selfish, and broken. So I won’t say them to you and I won’t really wish those things upon you. Because I’m a little happy for you, I guess.

  1. You didn’t say any of those things because you’re such a nice person, you don’t want to appear bitter and small so only thought those thoughts we all have after a breakup. No one heard them because they were never given voice. Don’t worry about us, we love you too much to tell, besides they were all earned when your ex became your ex. This doesn’t mean we think less of you, we don’t judge just let us help you to get over him and become the person you always were.

    1. This is the best comment I’ve ever received 🙂 thank you so much for your positivity, I write posts like this to get it off my chest but I do feel a little guilty because I feel bitter and sad. But the past is in the past and an ex is an ex for a reason. It’s taking a little bit of time but I am slowly becoming the person I want to be and who I was before the messy break up. Thank you again for commenting, it definitely made my day

      1. You’re welcome, and as I said you thought all those things but didn’t give voice to them. You will heal in time, and you will love again, next time could be the best time ever, I hope so as you deserve someone who appreciates you for who you are.
