MY BOYFRIEND LEFT ME QUOTES
My boyfriend left me for a guy. Then decided he still wanted me. He hurt me more times than I can count.
~ This is something that has happened to a lot of people
Those who are faithful know only the trivial side of love: it is the faithless who know love’s tragedies.
~ This is so true.
You never know what you have until you lose it, and once you lose it, you can never get it back.
~ This is not true and sometimes they do come back.
My heart was taken by you… broken by you… and now it is in pieces because of you.
~ Oh.. so sad to hear that.. Love can be such pain at times
Love is like falling down… in the end you’re left hurt, scarred, and with a memory of it forever.
~ You fall down in slow motion
You’re the one who broke my heart, you’re the reason my world fell apart, you’re the one who made me cry, yet I’m still in love with you and I don’t know why.
~ That is the travails of love my friend
A million words would not bring you back, I know because I’ve tried, neither would a million tears, I know I’ve cried.
~ This is so lovely…
Wanting him is hard to forget, loving him is hard to regret, losing him is hard to accept, but even with all the hurt I’ve felt, letting go is the most painful yet.
~ We can understand..
Sometimes the memories are worth the pain.
~ Oh yes.. so true
Sometime you just have to hold your head up high, blink away the tears and say good-bye.
~ This seem to the most intelligent choice.. We need to learn to move on
For a few minutes you made me feel as though I actually meant something to someone.
~ That is what hurts even more.
We are afraid to care to much, for fear that the other person does not care at all.
~ But we care nevertheless
People think it is holding on that makes you stronger, but sometimes it’s letting go.
~ Absolutely right
I made a choice to finally let go, because I can’t stand the pain, it’s time for my last tear to fall and smile again.
~ You made the right choice again…
I cried today… not because I miss you… or even wanted you… but because I realized I’m gonna be all right without you.
~ Oh Poor thing…
I wish he meant it when he kissed me cause then I could look back and see someone who loved me but I can only go back and see someone who used me.
~ Such a Pr***…
You always say you hate to see me hurt, and you hate to see me cry. So all those times that you hurt me, did you close your eyes?
~Maybe he was lying…
Sad isn’t it? How no matter what you do or say to me… when you come running back… when you need me again… I’ll be here… right here waiting for you, I’ll take you back… no questions asked. Sad isn’t it?
~ It really is sad, more so because it is so true
So… from now on… when you think of me… just remember that I could’ve been the best thing you ever had.
~ Hope he remembers that
You hurt me more then I deserve, how can you be so cruel? I love you more then you deserve, why am I such a fool?
~ We are all fools to have fallen in love in the first place
You asked me what was wrong, I smiled and said nothing, when you turned around and a tear came down and I whispered to myself… everything is.
~ This is so sad an so true..
You wonder why I don’t talk to you anymore and please believe me when I say it’s not that I don’t want to, it’s just that everything I want to say I can’t tell you anymore.
~ You are doing the right thing
I don’t know which I would rather believe… that you never did care or that you eventually stopped.
Hold my hand, just one more time, so I can remind myself why it is that I can’t get over you.
I think its time I let you go… and that is hard to do because part of me will be in love with you for the rest of my life.
While I was holding on all you did was let go.
Sometimes it’s better to be alone. No one can hurt you that way.
I just wonder how many people never get the one they want, but end up with the one they’re supposed to have.
The hardest thing about growing up is that you have to do what is right for you even if it means breaking someone’s heart. Including your own.
All I’m asking for is one night together. Just you and me. All alone. And if you can honestly say you don’t feel anything for me after that night, I will finally let you go.
Sometimes all you need is a broken heart to realize that something even better is right in front of our eyes, just waiting to be found.
No one can promise they’ll never hurt you because at one time or another, it will happen. The real promise is if the time you spend together will be worth the pain in the end.
The worst feeling in the world is knowing you’ve been used and lied to.
Maybe they are right. Maybe I did get my hopes up too high. Maybe I was in over my head. Maybe I am the stupid one for ever thinking that you loved me, but maybe, just maybe, I am tired of being alone.
Every time I see him all cool, calm and collected, I lose my breath, my heart starts pounding, and I am painfully aware that I am not over him and he is over me.
I don’t know which is worse, being the one with the broken heart or being the person that breaks the hearts.
It’s not that we aren’t meant to be together, I think that we’re just not ready for forever.
You always have an out. An exit strategy to make sure you don’t get hurt. You always walk always. You walk away before they can walk away from you.
Today was just one of those days where everything I did reminded me of you and every song I heard somehow related to you. I hate days like today, because they remind me of the one thing I dont have.
There were reasons we met, reasons for the good times and reasons for the bad times, and most importantly a reason to end. We have more to learn, more to experience and more loving to do in this lifetime.
Somehow I know we’ll meet again, not quite sure where and not sure when, your in my heart so until then good-bye.
Broken heart again. Another lesson learned. Better know your friends. Or you will get burned.
This time it’s over I’m keeping my heart, I’m gonna be strong and not fall apart… it’ll get better, I’ll no longer cry… in a couple of weeks I won’t want to die, I won’t want to go back. I’ll be able to sleep, it won’t hurt so bad and it won’t hurt so deep!
I would like to thank you, for showing me a part of myself that I have never seen. Yeah we were young and dumb, but it still was fun and I guess these things just tend to fall apart and I hope you feel the same.
Sometimes we must get hurt in order to grow; we must fail in order to know. Sometimes our vision only clears after our eyes are washed away with tears.
Walk home drowning these memories in the rain biting my lip to transfer this pain, your gone and I’m still going through withdrawals, next time around I’ll build a stronger wall.
