And Don’t Look Back

23 Jul

On the theme of leaving what makes you small:

I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.

Some people are exes because of something innocuous. They should have stayed just a friend, they were a great partner at that time and stopped being one.

But some people are exes because it took them a bit of time to show you how much they indeed did not respect you. And those people deserve to be dropped like a sack of hot potatoes.
