Why You'll Regret Losing The Woman Who Waited For You

As they say, when a woman is done trying, there’s nothing you can do to change her mind or bring her back. And once she’s gone, you will always regret losing the woman who loved you with her all.

When a woman is done she’s done.

Remember that part in Sweet Home Alabama when the Reese Witherspoon character finds out her estranged husband had been spending their time apart building this amazing artisan lightning-glass sculpture business because he wanted to be a decent person for her, so she leaves her fill-in-the-blank early-00s hottie fiancée (I don’t do rom-coms; sorry if the details are fuzzy) to be with the guy she’d been trying to divorce the whole movie?

See, the thing with women is that we’ll give you 7,000 chances. We believe you can be the best version of yourself, and we want to be there when that happens, which is why way too many of us get stuck in terrible relationships with guys who don’t treat us well. (But that’s a separate article.)

We really want to believe that when you say you’ll do better, you’ll actually do it this time.

It’s typical to realize you blew your chances and retort with some awful knee-jerk cliché like, “Well, if she couldn’t handle me at my worst, she doesn’t deserve me at my best,” but the truth is that nobody is obligated to stick around for anyone else’s garbage, and nobody deserves to build a stressful, drama-filled life because his or her partner can’t take responsibility for their destructive choices.

Her act of rejection as a means of self-care might hurt your feelings, but chances are, your actions had a lot to do with her decision.

You had no doubt that the gal who stuck by your side through all your bullsh*t would stand by you during life’s storms, but what about the people who have come into your life during fair weather?

The woman who loved you at your lowest point already knows your worst — and loved, supported, and encouraged you anyway. This is something that the woman who only loves you at your best may struggle with when the tides turn and she sees the part of you that isn’t so spotless.
