Stop Caring About Him

He doesn't care about you.

From my own experience, I know that it is extremely hard to break away from the guy you think you're in love with, even when he treats you like you're nothing. Your heart gets so caught up in the thought of you two being together forever, and you keep trying to make things work, even if it seems like he doesn't care. My advice is this: it doesn't matter how in love you think you are with him; if he does not respect you and treat you like the queen that you are, then let go of him. You have to force yourself to break the emotional ties that connect you to this guy who doesn't that doesn't actually care about you or your happiness. It's a waste of your time and energy when you invest your heart and soul into someone because you care so deeply about them, and in return they do not invest anything in you. Basically you are taking all your love and devotion and throwing it away; it's one thing when someone gives you what you give to them, but this guy is not worth your staying up all night thinking about him. It won't make him change his mind, it really doesn't matter what you say or what you do. If he doesn't seem to care about you now, he most definitely won't care about you in the long run. He most likely will not wake up one day and regret everything he's done to you, even if you wish he would. You need to leave your heart open for someone who is worthy of it, someone who is capable of handling it. You can't find someone who treats you like a princess when you're still stuck on a dirt bag that doesn't care about you. All of your love and energy could be put into someone that will reciprocate it back to you, but you will never get that chance if you keep letting this guy walk all over you. You're only hurting yourself, no good is going to come out of this when you keep giving someone so much of you and they can't even acknowledge your existence. I know it's hard to break away from him, but you need to do it if you ever want to be happy with someone else. One day you look back on all of this and wonder why you cared so much about him. However, I totally understand why you care about him so much at the moment, but trust me once you set a goal to get over him, it will put you on the road to recovery. You'll wonder why you were so into him in the first place. Just picture yourself in a few years with the love of your life, someone that adores every little thing about you and wouldn't change you for the world. Trust me, the longer you hold on to him the worse it gets. You've tried so hard to get him to care, and that's why it's hard to let go, and I get that. The sooner you start, the faster you will move on with your life. He's not even that great honestly; what could possibly be so amazing about some dude who doesn't care about you? There are tons of guys out there who will value you and treat you the way you deserve to be treated. Just remember, if you're not on his mind then he shouldn't be on yours. I know its easier said than done but it's worth it. It's not fair that you treat him like a priority and he only sees you as an option. Come one now, you deserve better than that. Do not give this guy any more of your attention; he does not deserve it, you gave him a chance and he didn't take it. It's time to move on and be happy.
