Fact of life: Many relationships end. Guess what? Some of those endings might be painful, either for what's left unsaid or what is said out loud.

Ever been appalled by something someone, perhaps an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend, said to you to the point that it forced you to reconsider whether or not you even wanted to stay with them?

People shared their stories after Redditor ChassieLove15 asked the online community,

"What did your ex say that made you realize you weren't compatible and had to break up?"

"I don't understand..."

"I don't understand why we can't just use the money you already have and neither of us work. If it starts running out, you can always go back to work."

lol nope

Yeah... sounds exactly like the kind of person you don't want to have around the moment there are financial problems.

"I was talking to her..."

"I was talking to her on the phone and she just hung up when I was in the middle of a sentence. I asked her about it later and she said I wasn't saying anything important and she had things to do."

"I have a lineup..."

"I have a lineup of guys waiting for me. If you break up with me, I'll be scooped up by tomorrow."

Fine, bye!!

Sounds like she really wanted to test out that hypothesis. Oh well.

"Then he got mad..."

"I was told all of the bad things in our relationship were my fault."

"Then he got mad when I ended the relationship. Why would I stay if you honestly feel that way?"

Good question. Why would you? Or should you? You're better off.

"She displayed..."

"Long time ago I had an ex who never worked full time during our relationship. She displayed what I thought might be depressive tendencies. I begged her to see a professional but she wouldn't. Finally broke up and her next boyfriend said the same thing 3 months into their relationship and she went, got a diagnosis and meds. Now she works FT and seems to have a normal life. Good for her but I wasted 6 years of my life waiting for her to get her act together."

People Break Down The Strangest Rules Their Parents Enforced Growing Up | George Takei’s Oh Myyy

The rules we follow growing up are often rooted in culture and circumstance, but that doesn't mean they always make sense for the world we live in. Or at lea...

"She suggested..."

"She suggested we no longer attend parties at swimming pools and beaches, because there would be girls in bikinis and I would see them."

Who knew women in bikinis had so much power and that men could be so weak?! Ridiculous.

"If you don't want..."

"If you don't want to spend every single minute with me, then we're going to have a problem."

"We had a problem."

IwishIwereyou

RUUUUUUUUN.

"He essentially told me..."

"He essentially told me I wasn't "worshipping" him enough."

"I immediately felt..."

""I could sleep with (insert ex's name here) down in (another city she commutes to)"

Immediately felt like I was being cheated on. On top of how she made me mentally feel, I was checked out 100% at that point."

"At that point..."

"She never wanted to have sex. We talked it out and she said she's just not in the mood most of the time, and I realized I have a very high sex drive. At that point, we realized this relationship wasn't going to be fair to either of us."

The lesson here: Some people really need to keep their mouths closed. Or just learn to think before they speak. But easier said than done, right?

There are those who say that going through a hard or unpleasant experience is what makes you stronger, and able to live your life more happily.

But there are very few people who don't have one memory of an experience that they wish they could forget... or even wish never happened in the first place.

Redditor Lord_Lazignac was curious to learn of experiences people had which continue to traumatize them to this day, leading them to ask:

"What event in your life still f*cks with you to this day?"

Dear parents born in the 80s/90s :

Your child is probably (we never really know for sure) not a weed dealer.

Probably.

So if you hear them talking about "mids" - they're not talking about average grade or potency cannabis. They are, in fact, probably talking about your lame old self and/or something you own or tried to give them.
