I was more hurt by the aftermath than the breakup?

Anonymous
When the man I deeply fell in love with and whom I wanted kids and Marriage with broke up with me. I was devastated like no other. It took me three years to get over him. But the reason I was deeply hurt was because of how badly he spoke of me and made jokes of our relationship after he dumped. He spoke ill of me to his family, friends, our ex co workers, and his girlfriends later on.

I already knew all of this. But it wasn't until recently he contacted me and admitted to many of these things. He says how is it possible to be more hurt by this than the breakup!

And I said because you knew the real truth and I stood by your side for everything plus your alcoholism and how all you wanted to do was party.

I made up a lie and said I had a boyfriend so he can leave me alone. Was I wrong for this?
