Just did the mistake of reading old texts.

Now it makes me kinda miss him (with emphasis on [b]kinda[/b]).

It’s a trap, I know.
It’s not helping, I know.
I’m just remembering the illusion, I know.

I know it's hard to delete those old texts, but be kind to yourself and do it.

@mindstruggle Yay you! Doing what is best for yourself is sometimes really hard... way to go!
@Ontheroad [quote] be kind to yourself[/quote] was the key.

@mindstruggle You being brave was the key.

Once deleted, it will be a lot easier to avoid that pitfall
@deadgerbil Much easier. 🙂
I deleted his number too. I should’ve done this ages ago. I am not running after someone who runs in the other direction.

Something similar happened to me a month ago. Found old texts and when I saw one that was just a random message she sent me one noght saying "I love you baby" I broke down as the flood of good memories of everything I missed broke through the emotional dam. I was not okay for sometime after.
@SamaYael omg I’m so sorry. How are you now?

@mindstruggle still not great. But little by little getting through my hell.

Few months ago. I pulled out old text saved from when MSN messager was around. Read the text, like few years of it. I wish i realised sooner that i was blinded on how toxic she really was. Noticed how much playing fire to my emotional she was doing and how it broke me mentally inside. Eventually I decided to delete em.
I would imagine that that can be painful.

But there will be new texts from new people, fresh words, things will move on.

Do something you like the most right away so divert your mind.

It's not worth the pain. Get rid of them.

Glad you deleted them now.
@iamonfire696 Wish I can delete him in my memory too but nah, I’ll just keep the good memories. It’s better to let things live in the past I guess.
