Wasted Years

When you’re in a relationship with someone you’d do anything for but realise over time that they wouldn’t care if you fell off a bridge, don’t do what I did and wait for it to get better. It doesn’t. Just leave. I wasted so much time and was stripped of my self worth and confidence. I’m starting to get it back but it’s been a hard road. I can’t believe how much better I feel now that I don’t have the stress that relationship caused in my life. I didn’t even realise how bad it was ‘til I was away from it for long enough to see it clearly. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is to listen to your intuition. I ignored it so many times, even in the very beginning. I’ll never do that again.

That’s a perfect example of what that person would say. Working out literally any problem, whether it was substantial or no big deal was a complete waste of time.

I was you ten years ago, and it was incredibly hard, but it's been on the up and up ever since. You're headed the right direction, making you the first priority. Some people say that's selfish, but their always the ones who do it by habit and think you mean even moreso. You can't give anyone water from an empty bucket, so you have to fill yours first.

Totally agree, except as you describe the other person not caring about you falling from a bridge, so how did it get that extreme? I mean weren't there a bunch of red flags, right from the beginning? Why let it get so extreme before saying "bye" see you later? No reason to waste your time.

Reminds me of a jazz song by Randy Bachman… The curtain falls, it’s the end of the play. There’s nothing left to say between me and you.
