It had been months since my breakup with my ex-girlfriend, but I was still finding it hard to move on.
I guess it was only natural that I was feeling jealous and angry when I heard she had started seeing someone new.
It made me feel like I was no longer important to her, and the fact that she had moved on so quickly was hard to swallow.
I was so frustrated and hurt that I decided to lash out at her new boyfriend in any way I could.
I started badmouthing him to everyone I knew, spinning lies and exaggerating stories to make him look bad.
I wanted to make sure that her new relationship didn’t last and that she would realize what a mistake she had made by leaving me.
I was doing a lot of damage with my lies, but I didn’t care. All I could focus on was getting even with my ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.
I started spreading rumors about him, telling people he was a bad influence and a poor choice for her.
I made sure to talk to everyone I could, from mutual friends to strangers, anyone who would listen to my stories.
The more I talked about her new relationship, the more I convinced myself that it was the right thing to do.
I was still hurting and I wanted her to feel the same way. I was so angry that I didn’t think about the consequences of my actions.
I never imagined that my lies could hurt her new relationship, or that I might even be breaking the law.
I was so wrapped up in my own pain that I failed to see that my lies were only making things worse.
Eventually, I had to face the truth and admit that my actions weren’t helping me move on.
I was also called out for my lies from people that know his character and stood out to vouch for him and that was really embarrassing for me and a slap to my face.
I realised I was being very childish and framing someone with a good character with my lies.
I knew that I had to stop badmouthing her new boyfriend or I was going to do more damage than I had already done.
I took some time to reflect on my behavior and realized that I had been acting out of hurt and anger rather than out of love.
I was finally able to let go of my pain and focus on my own life.
I stopped badmouthing my ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend and started focusing on my own future.
