Don’t be surprised to find that you are no longer the first person she calls whenever something good or bad happens. You taught her that she can’t count on you when she needs you the most. You taught her that every time that you didn’t show up for her.
Don’t be surprised to find that she now spends her time with her friends instead of you. You taught her that every time you weren’t present for her, and didn’t have time to just listen to her.
And, you couldn’t even remember the little things that she has told you. You never asked about her feelings. You taught her that you will never be there for her like her friends are.
Don’t be surprised to find that she is no longer including you in her plans. You taught her to plan her future without you. You taught her that every single time you said ‘no’ to her.
Don’t be surprised to find that she doesn’t miss you when you are gone. You taught her to not miss you every time that you made her feel like you never missed her; like her presence doesn’t make any difference in your life.
You never told her you missed her. You never told her you loved her. In turn, she never felt that she enriches your life in a meaningful way.
Don’t be surprised to find her ignoring your calls and text messages. Because she was the only one that compromised in the relationship. She was the one whose schedule was always changing to meet your needs. You, in turn, have never met hers.
She was the one that always fought for you and the relationship. She was always investing herself until she finally realized that she was investing in a person who didn’t seem to care.
Don’t be surprised to see her drifting away from you. She is only finding herself again. She is finally realizing that she deserves more than someone who is only taking her for granted. She knows she deserves someone who will never make her feel like she is invisible.
Don’t be surprised to find that her previously burning passion for you turned cold. Don’t be surprised to find her once sweet words and attentive nature are now turning bitter. Don’t be surprised to see her looking at you and not feeling a thing.
Because, remember: You taught her how to stop loving you.
And finally, don’t be surprised when she walks away from you because you have never given her a reason to stay.
