Recently I had been talking to my ex who I was not on great terms with as he had lied to me and cheated on me and when we were together had sexually assaulted me. We had been talking about ourselves and he had previously explained his upbringing to me, which sounded rough and I was sympahetic about. I felt like I understood him and his actions better after that.
I wasn't always so nice to him (especially after he had assaulted me) and as he had shared something personal that helped me to understand him better, I thought I would do the same in the hopes that he would understand me better. Basically, I told him about my childhood (not in great detail) which I must admit was very far from ideal, for example, I was homeless at one point, aged around 12-13. He is one of only two people other than family that I have told. He replied calling me a "sad story", followed by calling me a "clown" and afterwards blocked me. It upset me a lot. I m still upset about it, hence why it's on my mind.
Why would he do that? I told him about some of my most sensitive and personal memories. His response was a real slap in the face to me and I'm so hurt about it. What makes it worse is that I don t understand what I did to deserve that response. We are both in our 20s. I found it immature of him.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I'd appreciate your thoughts.
