“I’m tired of your bullshit. All this time, you made everything about you. It’s always about you. You played the victim and were negative all the time. You’re selfish and toxic!”
I was utterly shocked. His words felt like hundreds of daggers being stabbed into my chest and twisted. My heart stopped and I painfully gasped.
I was too numb. I couldn’t run to him and ask him to stay.
He blocked me on social media. Blocked my phone number. I couldn’t reach him. He hated me so much, he moved away not long after that.
For days, I obsessed over the last things he said to me. It took me a while to realize the truth: that he was right.
I was exactly what he said.
The whole time, I had mentally abused him, manipulated his emotions, made him feel guilty of things that weren’t his fault.
The fault was all mine.
