10 Blunt Breakup Quotes To Remind You Why You SHOULDN’T Text Your Ex Back

You’ve just gone through a breakup and you every time you unlock your phone his name is still at the top of your text messages. I get it. It can be SO tempting.

You want him to know you still care, that you miss him.

Maybe all you want to say is, “hey”. Or maybe you have a 3 paragraph message that you need to get off your chest so that he truly understands how you feel. Maybe he's already texted you 4 times and the guilt is clouding all your thoughts.

Let me give you one REALLY valuable piece of advice: DO. NOT. TEXT. HIM.

Before you even think about texting, ask yourself some questions.

Is it worth dragging out the pain that you’re both probably going through? Do I really miss him, or am I just lonely? Does he even deserve to talk to me?

Some break ups are cleaner than others, and maybe you have no reason to hate your ex. It can be tempting to want to text them because you don’t have a real reason to be bitter towards them, but this can be the most dangerous of situations.

There’s always a reason things end, and whatever that may be, trust that you’ve made the right decision.

If something is meant to be in the future, it will happen. But loving yourself and knowing that you DON’T need them in your life should be your number one priority.

Take this time to focus on yourself and realize that relationships end for a reason! Don’t drag it out longer than you need to.

Take it from some of these quotable people, they know EXACTLY what you’re going through, and they have the advice you need to keep you from sending that text.
