Couple of hours later I reply telling him it was a mistake for me to drive away and it wasn't the best way to deal with the situation, but I was pissed off. He was getting a bit nasty at this point, but like an idiot i turned up outside his flat and asked him to come and talk to me, we argued and he stormed off after a while. At this point I figured it was all done and dusted and I drove home, only to receive a chain of nasty messages when I got there about making things a lot worse for myself by coming over, why should he be forced to talk to me because I'm outside etc. I was telling him I wanted to work through things if we could, but he said the fact that I'd abandoned him was crossing his red line and he didn't want anything to do with me, he was disappointed in me, he thought I was better than that etc.
This morning he messaged again, still being shitty, so I just took it and left what he said. Mid-afternoon he messages me again about how he's in pieces, having an awful day, his ex is trying to ruin his life, he's getting evicted etc. Few hours later, another message saying he's sorted everything, he's been under a lot of pressure and took it out on me and he was a fool because he wants things to work out with us. I told him I was willing to move forward from it, and I'm willing to, but it's just difficult to forget some of the stuff he said. Would you work on things, or just leave it?
