I regret staying in the relationship I’m currently in. I regret internalizing every negative comment he makes, every name he calls me, every nasty thing he says to me. I regret not leaving him because of our child, I don’t know why i think I can change him or believe him when he says he will change. I regret sitting at home blaming myself when he’s out “doing him”, because I know exactly what he’s doing. I regret wasting 7 years of my life on a man who doesn’t even deserve 1. I regret not listening to my mom when she tells me that I deserve better because i know she’s right. I regret not having the courage or the strength to walk away. I regret a lot of things, but mostly I regret not loving myself enough to know better.
