I told you so.

I don't open up to people because all I get is "I told you so". Yeah I know. I messed up. I didn't pick the right person to be with . I realize that now. I know this is all my fault. I know that. But I hate when people get at me to open up more, and talk about it, and let it out. I don't do that because no one will just let me talk it out, or cry it out. I don't open up to people, I don't talk about my problems, I just hold it all in. The few people I talk to, except for one, just sit there and say "I told you so". Please no bashing. I know this is my fault. I know I was stupid, I should have left sooner. I just needed to vent.

  • I picked more than one wrong person to be with in my life! We all live and learn. I didn't listen to anyone when they told me the guys were wrong for me. I heard that I Told You So crap a whole lot of times. We all make mistakes. I finally learned from my mistakes. You will too.

  • ((hugs)) vent away, darling. Personally, whenever someone does something that makes me think: I knew it, or I told you so...I bite my toungue... I{ve always said that as a friend, my job is to say something beforehand, if my friend chooses not to listen, then I go get the broom and a pan, and wait.... then I help her pick up and start again. No "I told you so"´s from me!

  • If you have to keep hearing "I told you so." Then I would not talk to those perticular people about my problems. It is very insensitive for you to open your heart to someone and they say I told you so. Very mean.
