I just recently cut ties with an ex I was super in love with way back when and a part of me felt really depressed about putting in so much time and effort just to end everything. So I figured that recalling all of the positive lessons I've learned from him and other exes would be therapeutic. On that note, post what your exes taught you about men, yourself, or life in general :) I'll go first:

Recent ex: you taught me that I can appear cold sometimes when I'm stressed or focused on my own goals. You taught me that a mans actions should always be taken over his word, that an insecure man can't ever be changed by my actions/non actions, life is too short to be worried about what someone will or won't do, if a man is going to cheat there is nothing I can personally do to stop him, I should never dumb myself down or dim my own shine just to make a man with low self esteem feel better about himself.

Will come back with more!!!

Recent ex, I can't say he really taught me much, but I have learned that a man actions can if possible turn a woman into exactly what he wants. I have taught myself that loving myself and being around others that love themselves is better for me. Can't no man teach me anything.

New friend - the best way to get something form a dude is to not seem needy.

Is this me or ?not too sure?

Instead of trying to get even just make sure you do better.
Some things never change
You have to grow from the inside out
Everything comes to light sooner or later.
When a man shows you who he is BELIEVE IT
Change your phone number immediately

At this point the biggest thing I learned from my exes is that I chose them and I needed to make better choices in men. I needed to focus on what was important to me beyond the surface. I also learned that I can't make someone be who they aren't some people no matter how much you like them do not have the capacity to be/give you what you need.

Let the past stay in the past...
Most bad boys do not grow up to be good men...

This!!!! is exactly where I am now.

Everything Siren said (waving) +

 

People love you the best they can, but its not always in the way that you need and there's no crime in leaving to find the one who will give you what you need.

Hey Tracy! Still waiting on you Ms. Lady!

 Sex is better than love.

How you get em is how you lose em

Don't ever settle

Never listen to what a man tells you when you are pregnant, if you are not ready to fully support a child please don't have it

Never allow a man to move into your place. Make him go out a get you and him a place together. Cuz he will throw it back in your face and you back in his when you are mad

Boy Bye

My ex taught me to have my own! House, Car and Money, and have the man love me more than I love him...Because when I get tired of him, I can tell him to Suck-off, get out, or it's OVER! Hence the reason he's my ex! and why I can look around my beautiful house and say, no-one owns me!

You can't change anyone but yourself!
