Has anyone regretted choosing a career over love?

The only thing I regret now is that I loved you more than myself

I don't regret meeting you - the only thing I regret is that you took advantage of me so badly.

How can I regret meeting someone who made me feel like I could fly?

Or how could I regret ever meeting you if you were the one who made me what I am in this moment now?

To be honest, it wasn't your love that did that. It was the way you took advantage of me. I have allowed you to use up my energy, my emotions and my love.

I allowed your poisonous love to affect my own because I believed that the man I fell in love with would come back to me. I firmly believed that my love is stronger than yours. But I was wrong. Because she never was.

I don't regret choosing you, I regret that I always put you first.

If I really love then I give everything and nothing can hold back me from it.

She loved you, but you ignored her

When I loved you I love the way you smile, I love the way you breathe, I love the way the vein shows up on your forehead when you are angry and upset.

I loved the way wrinkles appear around your blue eyes when you laugh from the heart. And I loved the fact that it allowed me to fall in love with you every day. But instead of myself, I've put you first.

Your well-being was more important to me than my own. I've made up my mind to fight your demons before my own. I decided to save you just to destroy myself.

I don't regret making you my priority, I regret that I believed you would do the same for me.

Silly me, right? I believed so firmly that if I showed you that I was really interested in you and would do anything for you, you would also start to be interested in me and do everything for me.

I thought that if I love you strongly enough, somehow my love will completely heal you.

I regret hoping you would change because it broke my heart every time you left me. It broke my heart every time, every night when I had to fall asleep in bed alone.

It broke my heart to have to stand in the kitchen every morning and know that you are not interested in me and my person at all.

It hurt to know that I am not your priority - that I am just a choice in your life that you will never make.

I don't regret letting you into my life, I regret that I allowed you to destroy me.

I will never regret letting you into my life because for a while what we had was something really amazing and very special.

For a while I was the happiest woman in the whole world. For a while, I actually had a reason to believe that you loved me too, and I hoped that you would allow me to be a part of your life, just as I have allowed you to be a part of my life.

I only regret that I allowed your words to penetrate my heart so deeply.

I let your horrific comments destroy my confidence. I let your bad behavior break me daily because you only took care of yourself.

It's okay to miss him but not want to go back

I regret knowing what you were doing to me, but I still hoped that one day you would stop. I was still hoping that if I just tried harder, I could change that.

But repairing other people should never come at the cost of your own sanity.

I don't regret loving you, I regret that I trusted you with all my heart.

If I had left you sooner, I probably wouldn't have been hurt so much now. If I had decided then to put myself first, to put myself above you, I probably wouldn't be so devastated now.

But I stayed, hoping and loving you. I entrusted my heart to you just to see you drop it. I trusted you with my life just to see you destroy it. I trusted you just to see you go away.

I don't regret giving you everything I had because it gave me a lot more gain

I gave you my heart, body, spirit and mind. And what did you do You threw all of that away. Everything, every single part of me You destroyed my mind, poisoned my heart and hurt my soul very much.

But I am stronger and braver now than you will ever be. 'Cause I love myself in a way you never could.

I always carry my scars with me and I respect my fate. I know what i am And I also know how amazing and strong I actually am.

I know these bruises you gave me will heal, I know this poison can be sucked out. I know that no matter how hard you try to destroy me, I can rebuild myself. Because I finally know what I'm worth.
