Dealing with a mentally abusive ex who won't go away
My ex boyfriend who I dumped several months ago keeps returning to talk and hang out. I admit it was my fault initially because I gave in to talking to him because I missed him. But in the back of my head, I know he has not changed and I have finally come to a resolute decision to stay away from him. He recently lashed out at me for no reason calling me pathetic and worthless. I don't know where it came from. There was no prior convo or anything it was very random.There's nothing pathetic about the way I'm acting, I dumped him and have not slept with him or said anything about getting back together. He's psychotic, I feel as though he is putting his own insecurities on me. I firmly told him I do not want to hear from him again and a week later he has returned acting like nothing has happened talking about inside jokes and saying he misses me. I ignored him. It ruins my day to hear from him... I feel a mix of fear,paranoia, and even sadness because sometimes I internalize the abusive things he says. How do I make this stop? He does not take me seriously. I don't blame him because I was fickle in the past but this time I want him to know I mean it.
