Dear Aunty Lisa
I’m in great pain and regret right now. Five months ago, I left my boyfriend, Douglas, just because he couldn’t provide for me the material things I needed to live largely and affluently like my mates. I abused him verbally, emotionally and psychologically. I made him feel less of a man. I made him feel really bad about not being well up like other men in our neighbourhood.
My friends didn’t help matters at all. They gave me terrible advices on how to put more pressure on my boyfriend in order for him to try harder as a man.
We had only been dating for eight months when I decided to leave just to teach him a lesson because he refused to give me the US$300 I asked him to give me for my Christmas shopping. He offered to give me 2 000 bond, imagine, begging me that the ZW$2 000 was all he had. I threw the money at his face and it scattered all over the ground then I spat on him and told him that was the end of our relationship.
He stared at me with angry eyes but he didn’t stop me from leaving anyway, I was surprised. And that was the last time I saw my boyfriend.
However, after a few months now, I’ve been hearing stories from here and there about my boyfriend being a rich man. I thought it was all a joke and that people were just playing with my emotions. Until I went to see things myself.
Douglas is not only wealthy but also the owner of a thriving furniture company now. I ran into one of his friends who told me the whole story. He said Dougie worked very hard after I dumped him and was planning to wed his new sweetheart.
I cried and cried my eyes out and almost fainted last week when I eventually saw him driving a very expensive car with another woman sitting in front with him. I wanted to approach him and beg but I don’t know how I’m even going to start begging him to accept me back.
I need advice please, what should I do. I’m broken.
