He just broke your heart. You still think about him constantly.
Does he think of you? Does he feel as sad as you do right now? Does he have any regrets?
Let me quiet those thoughts you’re having. The answer is simply, no.
Right now, he’s not thinking about anything except his freedom. As far as he can tell, he made the best choice.
He now has no one to answer to, and he’s going to run all up and down town living it up.
Not what you wanted to hear, huh? Let me finish.
He doesn’t regret losing you right now, but he will. Believe me, he will. It’s just going to take him longer to realize what a horrific mistake he’s just made. Yet, he’ll realize it.
I’ll let you in on a little secret: they always do.
Remember the photo that explains a break-up from both a man’s and a woman’s perspective?
The woman cries at first, then slowly, she builds herself back up. In several weeks time, she feels liberated and happy.
It is not so with men. At first, they think that they’re so free and so exhilarated at the break-up. Then, they come to realize what missing you means.
They crumble and by six months, they’re the wreck that you are probably feeling like right now.
It’s a beautiful thing.
Not that we want them to feel horrible about losing us...I mean kinda?
We just want them to understand that quitting wasn’t the only way out—that there still could have been greatness there.
The relationship wasn’t over. Not from where you’re standing.
He’ll realize that, too, soon enough.
So, don’t get yourself down thinking that he’s forgotten all about you. Temporarily he may think he’s hit the jackpot, but he really hasn’t.
He should never have lost you in the first place, and I can promise you without a doubt that he’ll regret it.
Just wait and see.
