Have you ever pushed someone away then regretted it?

Just a curious question
If you have regretted it, what did you do?

Updates:
Have you ever pushed someone away who loved you and realized it was a mistake.

If you naturally push people away and don't want anyone to get to know you, is there a reason for it?

  • Of the 3 serious relationships that I had, two of the women who broke up with me told me that they regretted letting me go literally after a few months after breaking it off. I have never been there one to initiate a break up, so I've never regretted letting someone go.

  • I used to push everyone away and regret it. That's the nature of a self-saboteur.

  • Yeah. There was this girl from my middle school who wanted me so bad and I just completely ignored her. I was so stupid. I've learned a lot since.

    • Dude same with me except in high school. She was so pushy, definitely attractive though.

  • I don't think I've ever pushed anyone away, at least not knowingly or purposely.
    I have regretfully lost someone because of my own inaction before. Which is probably what pushed that person away.

    • What did I do? Unfortunately I acted on my mistake far too late, but I did still make the necessary steps and changes I needed to make.

    • Show All
    • There is a lot to it unfortunately and I wouldn't want to dump it all on you.

    • I would be more than willing to listen if you ever want to get it out, just let me know, here or on private message either way.

  • She was like clingy and a stalker but now I look back and she was my only friend and I love her now but it's not possible she liked me so hard back then but now I know I can't be in that place so I stand on the side and it breaks my heart seeing her get hurt and I can't help her

  • Yep. Pushed away my best friend. I went through a depression after a breakup, and I lived in a fog for the next year. When I came out, I was determined to do away with relationships that were too close. Our relationship was a casualty, and i haven't talked to her in 5 years. We legit loved each other and brought each other out of some bad times, so I regret not being there for her.

  • I only regret doing it once, every other time I don't really care about. This one time though, it was the stupidest thing I've ever done and I'd do anything to go back in time and change it but sadly life doesn't work like that

  • I do that to everyone and I really can't help it. I've regretted it, but I've had the chance of talking to them again and the same thing just ends up happening.

  • I'm not talking about a break up but I've pushed "friends" away before and no I do not regret it. If I pushed people aways it was for a reason.

  • Yes, I pushed him away. It hurts me to see him now. Even though we both hurt each other I was the one who pushed him away. I still think about him but I’ve learned to let good things go.
