I never thought I’d be the one to walk away and give up on our relationship, but in a way it’s you doing it just as much as I did. The difference is I said it. The funny thing is, I didn’t sit out there and wait to see if you’d come out (because I knew you weren’t) and I didn’t even cry after. I knew it would probably hit me the next day, which of course it did today. I woke up feeling just as angry as the minute I walked away from you, and I wasn’t in a good mood at school which was hard. Then work, ugh. But there’s nothing I can do really. So I’m trying not to feel so sad and shitty about it. I have to focus on me. I’m not going to beg someone for the love, respect, and effort I should be showing myself.
