They hurt, and after putting them out there, there is no turning back, there are no exceptions (that is, if you have a soul), if you don’t have it, there is nothing I can do for you, if you don’t know what you did wrong, I am not the person who have to tell you that you made a mistake, so I will not waste any more time with you, only you can find out.

Going back to people with a soul, hurting someone you love is hard, you start to think why the hell did I say that, and this is a good thing, it means you know you made a mistake and that you are sorry, it means you have learned the lesson, and you won’t doing or saying that again.

There was a boy who had started dating a beautiful girl, this girl had recently left a long and toxic relationship, where she couldn’t do anything, where everything bad that happens in the relationship was her fault, because, according to the boy’s mother, he was perfect.
However, this new guy was not like her ex-boyfriend, even though he is a newbie in relationships, this guy had been raised to respect everything and everyone. During the relationship, there were good and less good times, times when she was still trying to expel what had happened in her previous relationship, he knew she had been severely hurt psychologically, he knew he had to be very careful not to hurt her again, he knew she was down and would have a hard time trusting someone again. This girl was a fortunate one, because that boy, she was dating, was really what she needed (or any other girl), a boy who respected her, who was on her side regardless of what happened, there were times when neither spoke, just stood there, side by side, embracing, her friends told her that they had never seen her so happy and healthy, and that she had gain some weight.
However, a few months later, she decides to end the relationship with that boy, that she was just using him and that a normal person realized that. He, with a warm head, said what a bit**. She replied, yes, keep saying that, sooner or later you will go ahead and forget about your crazy ex-girlfriend.
He didn’t say another word, the damage was done, instead he wiped away the tears that were about to run down his face.
But, he sent you a new, and last, message, don’t worry, I won’t be bothering you again, I’ll pack my things I’ve left your house and go, be
