lilylove14 :  I know things are hard and scary right now, but you should be proud of yourself. You acted courageously for your own happy future.

lilylove14 :  Sounds like you made an impossibly hard decision, but that it’s the right one for you and your future. Well done.

It’s very rare that we make such a big decision and feel absolutely confident that it was the right one, so try not to let that little bit of residual uncertainty get to you. 

Just remember: so many people don’t have the courage to do what you have, and instead massively compromise their future and happiness. You’ve set yourself up for a much brighter future and should congratulate yourself every morning while you move through this difficult phase.

Best of luck!

Bee, I’m glad you chose to walk away. You absolutely deserve someone who is fully committed to your future.

Good for you for making this hard decision, and good for you for taking control back over your own life.  I’m sorry you are hurting.  I do know that you will get to the other side of it and will feel much better about yourself and your life.  The best part is you have freed yourself to be able to meet someone who won’t hesitate to marry you.  Good luck to you!

lilylove14 :  I’m sorry Bee. It sounds like you two were at different parts of life and he wasn’t ready to commit. But he was a jerk to string you along like that.

Although leaving is very hard I’m positive you made the correct decision. There are plenty of good men who do want marriage now. Now “maybe later”.

lilylove14 :  Hoepfully I can follow in your footsteps. I’ve just blocked his number from my phone. We’ve been together creeping up on 11yrs. I think it’s time for me to move on. Hence why I blocked his number because of the fight we had last night. Clearly, it’s over for me. 


Good luck with moving forward. Again, I hope I can follow suit.

You made the right decision. Now you are free to find someone who DOES want to be with you. Or to do anything that isn’t just a complete waste of time.

I was in a very similar situation as you. Honestly, I’m so happy that I left him. I feel sooo much better not being around my ex and all the toxicness. It sucks for a little bit, but then you are like I’m tired of being sad. Girl, just enjoy your freedom for a little bit and when you’re ready- you will know what you will and will not stand for and find the man for you!
