Relationships can often turn sour and the person you used to love the most suddenly becomes someone you can’t stand.
Do you feel like you want revenge, or at least to make your ex feel a little bad?
Well, then you’ve come to the right place because today we’ll take a look at how a simple text can help you to get what you need!
Tell them how much they have hurt you
If you want to make your ex feel bad, you can start from a place of being truly hurt.
In order to feel hurt, you have to acknowledge how much they have hurt you.
This means that you have to be honest with yourself first and foremost.
Be open and honest with yourself and the rest of the process will be a lot easier.
You see, there are many different ways in which someone can hurt you.
It could be that they were unfaithful, or that they were too controlling, or it could be something else.
If you want to make them truly feel bad, you have to genuinely acknowledge and own the fact that they have hurt you.
When you then text them, you could tell them that they have hurt you a lot.
Sure, that might not be what your ego craves, but it would definitely make your ex feel guilty for hurting you.
Does that sound too vulnerable for you?
Then don’t worry, there are other things you could text:
Say that you need space to think and be on your own
If you’ve broken up with your partner, you’ve probably already said that you need some space.
Most people are familiar with this concept, and it is something that works really well if you want to make your ex feel bad.
You see, they will probably expect you to want to talk to them a lot, so texting them that you need some space will really throw them off their game.
Not only will they start to overthink what is going through your mind, but they will also start to feel bad and miss you.
This is a very powerful way to make them feel bad because it shows that you can stand on your own two feet and that you don’t need them to feel whole or complete.
This will make them feel like they have lost something, and they will want to get it back.
This can be done in a different way, too:
Don’t text them at all
This may sound like a strange way to make your ex feel bad, but it will work.
If you want to make your ex feel bad, simply don’t respond to any of their texts.
This can be a very powerful way to make them feel like you are not interested in being in contact with them anymore.
If your relationship has ended badly, you probably want to avoid talking to your ex as much as possible.
This is a great way to stay away from them without having to say that you don’t want to speak with them.
I know, you are looking for actual texts, but not texting them at all can sometimes speak louder than any text ever could.
It will make them second-guess themselves and will help to empower you!
Speaking of empowerment, try this next tip, too:
Tell them how grateful you are for the breakup
This can be a very powerful way to make your ex feel bad and to take back some of the power in the situation.
If the breakup happened a while back, you probably don’t really want to bring it up and talk about it.
But, if it is still fresh in your mind, then this is probably a great way to make them feel bad.
If you are truly grateful for the breakup and you can genuinely say that you are, then this can be a powerful way to make your ex feel bad.
If you were in a toxic relationship, or if your ex was toxic, then it can be very empowering to say this.
You can say things like, “I’m so grateful that we broke up. I’m happier than I have been in a long time.” Or, “I’m so grateful that we broke up, because I don’t think we were good for each other.”
Trust me, this will really make your ex feel bad because they will realize that they no longer have any power over you and that you are very powerful on your own.
Speaking of being powerful on your own:
Focus on yourself instead of them
When you are in a relationship, it can be very easy to focus on your partner and what they are doing, what they think, and what they want.
If you want to make your ex feel bad, you have to focus on yourself instead of them.
If your relationship ended badly, this may be easier said than done, but it is an extremely powerful way to make your ex feel bad.
This doesn’t always mean you need to text them anything, per se.
You have to genuinely focus on yourself and what you want and need.
This can be a truly powerful way to make your ex feel bad because they will know that you are not thinking about them anymore and that you are focusing on your own life instead of them.
On a similar note:
Live your best life
There is no better way to make your ex feel bad than to live your best life.
If your relationship ended because one or both of you decided that it was time to move on and move out, this can be a great way to make your ex miss you and feel bad about the breakup.
Now: there is no specific text you can send to convey this message, it’s more about something you do.
However, depending on what is going on in your life, you can use this opportunity to text him something like “I don’t have time, I’m flying to Spain this weekend”, or “I can’t I’m on a backpacking trip”.
These texts will show him that your life didn’t end with the relationship, quite the contrary, you are really living out your dreams!
The best way to make them feel bad is to show them what they are missing
This is the best way to make your ex feel bad because it is the most honest and sincere way to go about doing it.
It is the best way to make them feel bad because it is the most genuine way to do it.
There is no better way to show them what they are missing out on than to show them how amazing your life is now that the two of you are not together.
Whether you are sending them texts of what you are up to, or you are ignoring them completely, getting back to them days later saying how busy you were, when your ex realizes that he is missing out on stuff, he will feel really bad.
Make your ex feel bad and regret their decision to end the relationship by showing them how much happier you are without them and how much better your life is without them in it.
Final thoughts: you don’t need a text
The moral of the story is, to make your ex feel bad, you don’t always need to send them a text.
Sometimes, what happens in your life outside of texting says a lot more about how you feel.
Trust me, as soon as you let go of the need to text your ex something to feel bad, that’s when they will probably actually start missing you and feel terrible.
