Why was I sad and disappointed a man at work got promoted out of the store and will not be working with me anymore when he sexually harassed me?

For months he played with my emotions my heart and sexually harassed as well as emotionally harassed me. He tore me down, he bullied me. Etc. He hit on me and kept bringing up sex. He did much of this even though I told him many times to be nice, stop doing XYZ, stop talking about sex etc.

I agonized over the mental situations he put me throguh so much. I didn't know whether to report him to HR (I don't think HR would give a damn even to this day... This work culture is full of sexual harassment, period.)

And cried hard at home about him and what he did to me. He broke my heart several times.

He led me on making me think he wanted to date me and liked me. He didn't reveal he had a girlfriend for months at first and I had no idea a man who was pursuing me so heavily would be taken. That's how much he was all over me. I didn't even THINK of him being taken.

Now he is gone for a few months and will be training as part of his promotion. He is set to be a boss but not to work with us any longer. So apparently he will no longer be working with me anymore. I probably prayed about him leaving or me leaving the job before. I have ignored him and tried to block him out while at work many times and often failed and got sucked into the charm and stopped caring how he mistreated me before. You could call it forgiving but I don't know if its called that.

Finally I can go to work and there's a less chance of having to worry about being dominated over by this guy. I dont know to what extent he purposefully hurt me. I actually believe finally that he was abd is just ignorant as to how much his words and actions hurt me over the past year.
