So often in relationships we have disagreements to the point that we threaten our significant other with the statement, “You’re gonna miss me when I am gone.” It is most likely just an empty threat, but when it isn’t it is definitely a true statement. I always ask myself why my exes waited until I was out the door to want to put in the work to make our relationship successful. Did it really have to take me walking away for them to get to that point? I am self-aware enough to know that the plea to make things work is out of desperation and is not genuine. The truth is, they should miss me, because they did cherish me while they had me. That doesn’t mean I am going to return to them. You have to love yourself enough to know that you deserve better. It shouldn’t take you leaving for someone to value you as their partner. If you value me while you have me, then you won’t have to miss me.
