Forget the ones that forget you.
It’s just too late. She doesn’t need you anymore and she no longer misses you. And it’s all because you never made her a priority. You took for granted that she would always be there, waiting for you to serve her the scraps of your time.

Just because you miss someone doesn’t mean you should go running back to them. Sometimes, you have to keep missing them until you wake up one morning and realize you don’t anymore.
