Dealing With Break Ups

We're done, and I've cried my eyes out and I'm still incredibly hurt. The sooner I realize that it was for the best, considering how inconsiderate he was to me the majority of the time, the sooner I'll move on and be happy with myself and with his decision.

He was mean to me frequently. He would say things that he just shouldn't say to someone he cares about, but I'm so passive that I'd just let it slide. I'd always think, "He's new to the whole 'having a girlfriend thing'. I let him know when things he said hurt me, and he tries to make it out to be that I'm just way too sensitive and freak out about stupid things. That's bullshit. Maybe I do sometimes, but so does he and so does everybody. I'm not sorry that I don't just smile and nod when he says mean things to me anymore. I can't do that all the time. I used to try, but I just can't do it anymore. It was really considerate of him to take me somewhere private to talk about our issues instead of just giving up, that really shows what our year long relationship has meant to him. He used to love me, I think. Or he used to love the idea of me. We just weren't right for each other.

I hope he'll learn eventually, for another girls' sake.
