How to treat you.

“You teach people how to treat you by what you allow, what you stop, and what you reinforce.”

  1. This was hard to swallow but I did. Met someone a few months ago, but my mindset wasn’t right. I have failed at all my past relationships that I attempted to do the opposite of my nature thinking that the problem was always me, by just leaving my emotions and attachments out of it. Boy did that backfire horribly. I so wish that I had been doing these lessons back then. I learned that 1-I do not have the capacity to become involved with anyone without involving my feelings. 2-you will lose your self-respect. 3-royally screwing up any possibility of an actual relationship to be taken seriously..just at the top of my head..There are just so many more lessons that I have learned since then, including how to treat the other person the right way too. So long story short, I fell in love and screwed everything up by not being true to myself from the beginning, which wasn’t fair to the other person either. I am not going to go into detail but I had wanted to get a chance to tell him how I felt because I had started doing these lessons and my consciences was becoming a big problem, I just couldn’t lie about how I am. It didn’t happen as I expected, but I sent an email, and some text messages, trying to make it right..But he has never answered any. That is okay though because I am an adult and regardless I am responsible for my actions. I did tell him that I didn’t expect him to feel the same way and that was ok that I understood that, in the text. But nothing.. I can see why now what i did wrong…My biggest regret is that he will never have gotten to know me for the real me and it hurts deeply.
