I Wasted My Time On Someone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,360 People

    When most people talk about wasting their time,

    they talk about someone else. In my case, I wasted my own time due to fear. I had so many opportunities to fall in love, and yet I rejected all those women because of fear. Fear is the enemy of love and it seems to destroy everything is the beautiful in life. Someone once told...

    Off and on for 7 years with my "soul mate"

    and ended it over two years ago because he wouldn't grow up, but still not over it?? I find myself continuing to beat myself up over it in subtle ways with this reoccurring theme: wasted time. Ironically I'm still wasting time by not moving on. I'm scared of rejection, whether...

    Men give so many mixed messages you have to

    judge their intentions by their actions. The bottom line is that if he likes you, you won't be left questioning if he likes you. Period. If he wants you, he will damned well move heaven and earth and be with you. End of story. If not, do yourself a favour and move on. Now.

    Nothing begins and nothing ends

    that is not paid for with pain and tears. Curse the day and pray for light knowing that you have given all and found no limit to these sorrows. My glass was half full and you held it in your hand and crushed it; all that remains are the broken slivers of glass. Looking back, it...

    Is it really wasted time

    if you learned something from the experience? We learn the most from our mistakes, even if the mistakes are other people.

    I've been in love with someone

    for two years . The last year was on and off. Then we got to a point where he told me he didn't want to be with me . But we still communicated and text everyday he'd come to see me and we'd have a great time and I allowed this because I loved him some days he'd ignore me then...

    and now that i got rid of you,

    it feels nice. i finally feel somewhat peaceful and content and not like i'm walking on eggshells everywhere with you. i should have walked away sooner, and i wish i knew back then that it's okay to leave sometimes, and to think of myself more often.

    7 Seven months wasted.

    What do I get in the end? I get accused of cheating, she tries turning my friends against me, tells everyone (even random people) that I used her and I'm made out to be a bad person. Keep in mind she was straight into another relationship three weeks after she broke up with me...

    Little did he know, him ignoring me taught me

    how to live without him. At the time, I was confused and distraught. I wanted to know why. I began to blame myself by dissecting my personality and finding new flaws. Maybe I wasn't pretty enough. Maybe I was boring. Maybe...SIGH!! Whatever. Now, looking back I thank him...

    Nine years on my ex-wife.

    She still doesn't realize she's the one with the problem. She forced me to visit a counselor for our son and then got mad when I didn't want to go any more when the counselor said she was the one who needed help.

    too.... or was it truly wasted? I have learned that there is life and love after love and heartache. Maybe that was the breather I needed after my ex... maybe we are just taking a breather... maybe my best has yet to come. Ether way, I won't stop living, loving, helping, and...

    You really messed me up,

    you know. I gave you everything I had and you just threw me away like a piece of trash. I really believed you loved me, but I'm pretty sure I was wrong. What makes it worse is the fact that you never told me why you left. I was just left on my own wondering what it was that I...

    Learned from experience.

    I've become greedy other this experience. My heart comes first, second my mind, third is thought of being with someone. My first question to myself is, is he worth the pain in your heart again? You think he cares what he puts you thru while feeding lies to believe he's so great...

    I don't think anything is necessarily a waste

    of time. I think we learn something from everything we've done and been through. I spent a lot of years with a guy that was toxic for me, but even so, I don't consider it wasted time. I just reflect on what I went through, and learn from it in order to better myself.

    passive-aggressive and mean in the HOPE that the person it's meant for will see it; I stop myself and try to say something encouraging instead. It's not insincere, it's a good practice for my own mental health. There are several reasons for this: 1.) A mean, passive-aggressive...

    I think this can apply to any relationship with

    someone, where I emotionally invested in but it doesn't feel like the person didn't really give anything back. Would this be a selfish way of looking at things?

    Don't ask someone to stay with you twice.

    If they want to leave, they going to leave no matter how hard trying to convince them to stay. They don't need you and you must not need them either.
