“Don’t bother saying your sorry because it’s useless when you don’t mean it. And don’t bother being friends, you don’t deserve my friendship. And don’t bother expecting me to be there for you anymore, because I won’t be there for someone who was never there for me.”


Antonio Arissa
The kiss, 1930

I don’t want to let what happened to me ruin my view on men. I don’t want to be untrusting, but now I feel whenever I meet someone new all that will go through my head is “Is this the real him?” I know you can’t always truly know someone 100%, but I hope that after all this I’ll know the red flags. I’ll know to walk away before it’s too late.
