Most of all, I wish you had respected me enough to let me go, but because you couldn’t, because you “don’t want to”, I have to respect myself enough.

I have lived this life lesson more often than I care to admit.

Guys like this don’t let you go — you have to free yourself from them. Otherwise they will keep yo-yoing in and out of your life, knowing that you have a soft spot for them and that you will always answer their call.

Sadly, far too many people’s relationship strategies involve “what can I get away with?” instead of “what is the right thing to do here?” It’s on us to internalize this and react accordingly.

Wishing you smoother sailing ahead!
