He Left? This Reaction Makes Him Fight for You

Now, I’m not going to tell you whether or not you should give it another try with your ex. There are many factors to decide that we can talk about another time.

But what I *do* know is that if you want to have a real chance of getting this guy back in your life, you must understand this important truth before you take the next step…

Stop Suffering Over Your Ex + Get What YOU Want.
I’ll Help You in 4 Easy Steps. → http://www.GetHimOrGetOverHim.com

When someone ends it with us, we go through so many different emotions. But amongst the first emotions are panic, the terror of abandonment, the grief of having lost someone, but not lost someone to a death, lost someone who’s still there, who still exists, but has decided that they don’t want us. One of the most difficult, exquisite pains we have to experience in life. Our instincts in that moment are to fight for this thing, to fight for the relationship that we want so badly. But this urge to fight is a dangerous one.

Here’s a concept I want you to take to heart. It’s not your job to fix what he broke. Think about it. He broke something. He shattered something. He violated the relationship. There are many different ways to violate a relationship, right? Imagine he cheated on you. You would see that as a fundamental violation of the boundaries of the relationship. But so is this. Why don’t we see someone breaking up with us, someone disappearing, as a violation in itself? It’s a violation of a truth that we held, a truth that you and I were bigger than any problem, that you and I were going to overcome, that you and I were going to do what so few people do and actually last together.

What’s so sad is that during a breakup, so many women fight for him to give them back the relationship they’ve lost. But I want you to completely flip your mindset on this. When he broke up with you, he gave up his power. The relationship is no longer his to give. In fact, if he wants it again, that’s something he has to fight for. That’s something he has to earn. A challenge he has to overcome. The only way that he’s going to fight for you is if he realizes that he broke something.

Now, how does he realize that? You have to change something about the way you’re thinking about this. You have to begin the process of genuine acceptance that you didn’t have what you thought you had. That you thought you were going to have something that was going to last. You thought you had someone that was willing to give their all and do that with you. It turns out you didn’t.

Now, that’s an unpalatable truth during a breakup. That’s not something we want to hear. That’s uncomfortable. But on the other side of accepting that is relief. What’s truly painful is when you feel that that’s the person you were supposed to be with forever, and that person left. Well, that’s not true anymore, is it? Because what was sacred about that relationship beyond all else is that the two of you were willing to commit. This person isn’t now. What’s sacred has been lost. Accept that you haven’t lost the great relationship of your life. It wasn’t as it turns out the great relationship of your life. Accepting this truth is the beginning of inner peace. It is what will move you forward powerfully in your life. It is what will start you on the journey of doing new things, meeting new people, experiencing life again. Him seeing you with that level of acceptance, him seeing that he genuinely broke something, if anything is going to make him change his mind and realize the value of what he had and make him want to fight for it, it’s that. It’s seeing what he broke.

If you want practical ways of doing exactly what I’m talking about right now, beginning the path of acceptance, moving on, building your life powerfully again, I have a free guide for you that details four steps that you can take to do exactly that. It is at the link GetHimOrGetOverHim.com. I named it that because I have the fundamental belief that the same things that get someone running back to you are the things that get you over that person. That’s the beauty of it. Go download that free guide now. I know you’re in pain. I know you’re suffering. But I swear to you, things are going to get better. This is going to get better. Let’s do it together. I will see you at that link.

    He freaked out, I called space and he agreed we’d talk when he gets home (he is overseas).
    It’s been ten days, he gets home tomorrow. Neither of us have contacted each other, I see him looking at my insta stories…do I break the silence or no?

  5. Alisha D'Souza says:

    Does this work in a long distance relationship

  6. Raijeli buredua says:

    I want to move with someone better than him..he’s not interested to stay with us. .I’m praying that God will provide

  7. Hibo says:

    Thanks Mr Matthew

  8. Dindoll says:

    i watched the video and i must say, true stuff. its not easy…

  9. Yvonne says:

    Just asking is if he left me for his Ex. Is thea a chance they can hit it off, they miscarriaged .Is that pain holding them together

  10. D says:

    in case anyone read my comment that I posted on here on March 11th…I just re-read my comment and I didn’t explain properly in my comment what I was thinking…I actually do know what “ex” means lol.

    I suppose I was just thinking that if the guy is the one who ends the relationship twice or three times, then the woman must be really in love with him to keep going back to him, and I suppose she wouldn’t go back to him unless they were on good terms since the split.

  11. Babs says:

    What to do , when the only reason he left me, was that he was diagnosed with depression?

  12. andrea says:

    thanks .:)

  13. Nzonesta says:

    Thanks for help..when am in pain you give me strength to move on…courage to make a next step….thanks for a person like you in the world….

  14. Chelsea says:

    What if you have tried everything to get him back??

    My ex and I were on and off for 4 years, he was only 20 when it started and we were always on and off due to him not being ready for a relationship. He wants to travel and move overseas for 2 years and it’s not an option for me to go with him so he broke up with me as he feels he is not ready for a relationship and has lots he wants to do with his life. I have a son and he says he is not ready to be a step dad. I have tried the no contact, then contacted him but he just says he isn’t ready to be friends. He also unfollowed me on social media as he says it is how he needs to deal with it and that him not talking to me doesnt mean he doesnt care etc. We have been separated for 10 months, I don’t know what to do! I feel like I have tried everything. I still love him so much. I live next to his parents so I know there will be future chances to speak, do I just need to have faith that if it’s meant to be it will be? I know he loved me. He just says he needs to sort himself out before he can commit to a serious relationship. Please help

  15. Blessing Ndidiamaka says:

    Tnx Mr Matthew

  16. Lou says:

    Thanks Matthew,
    You have no idea how perfect the timing is off this. I’m still in pain even though it’s been a month. We have a child involved so it makes it so much harder. Thanks for the free advice and the guide. It means so much thank you.

  17. h f says:

    if someone leaves, it means it was not meant to be. So , just move on with a better person because if the previous was meant for you , then he/she would have stayed. Simple as that .

  18. Savannah S says:

    I took your advice from previous videos/podcasts when my boyfriend of over a year abruptly broke up with me. I wasn’t perfect at it, but I made it clear what I wanted and I held my ground with high value and dignity. He didn’t come back. And in that process, I also saw how high value I truly was and that I deserved better than what I was settling for. It took my first ever heartbreak to show me my true worth. I’m 3.5 months past our breakup, and my eyes are wide open. No more settling.

  19. D says:

    I’m a bit confused, due to my zero relationship experience (I’ve only ever had flings or dates with guys, so I wouldn’t call any of them my ex).

    WHAT I’M CONFUSED ABOUT IS…lots of people get back with their boyfriends for eg. my cousin broke up with his girlfriend for a short time, and then they got back together and now they’re married. Would she have classed my cousin as her “ex” back then?

    So does the term “ex” mean that you and your boyfriend split up and the INTENTION of ONE or BOTH partners, is that the split is for good (ie. for ever)?

    I can think of one famous couple who are now married, and she has said publicly that they split up 3 times before they were married.

    I feel like an idiot admitting that I’m a bit confused about this, but if someone could clarify it for me that would be great! Thanks!

  20. Rutu says:

    I understand man can’t express their feelings as woman does but at some point showing love, expressing that through words or gestures becomes necessary. Now I am at a point that I’m done with relationships crap. It sucks

  21. Rutu says:

    You are amazing sir, it really helps me when I watch your videos and read all the guidance for moving on. And I have understood that do the thing that scares you. It will make us more powerful and positive. This perspective gave me power to move on from a relationship which was going no where. I always had to talk when he wanted, when he wanted to meet and etc. I was so fed up of his changed behavior. He didn’t wanted a brake up but also did not have the time to give me. So without saying anything I’m just being myself working on my career and other ado’s. Thank you

  22. Nash says:

    Thank you so very much. This perspective has given me the power to get over my break-up. I cried and begged him last night to give us another chance but he didn’t budge .I feel like crap now.The least I can do is put on a respectable front hereafter. I am still wishing he would come back as part of his decision was due to my wrong responses.

  23. Inonge says:

    It’s true what you have mentioned in this topic. Coz my ex did the same of leaving me without any reason and after six yrs he came burgingfor me to take him back and I’m proud for that coz its him who wants to come back in my life,but from this step what must I do now?

  24. Selene says:

    Thanks for bring back subtitles! ♥
    But I don’t want my ex back…
    In fact, is a great way to make the guy I’m with to stay: making him see what he don’t have to break. ;P
    Not like jump and say “hey look at me, I’m a great catch” is actually enjoying myself.
    Older entries of this blog have many keys.

  25. Tika says:

    This video is simply an assurance. I am learning to accept the fact that we are no longer together, accept his words that said we are not compatible, eventually accept the root cause that he actually can not love me and accept all my flaws. But the journey of acceptance is very painful though. I wish I could just wake up every morning or sleep at nights without having all this heavy heart kicking in.
    The past half month, there are days I am strong, but there are so days where I break down and cry. This is not alright, isn’t it? I need to be strong.
    For now, keep replaying this video to keep me going. I can do this!

  28. Ann says:

    Hey Mathew great video.. do you have any tips for leaving a self absorbed narcissistic guy who even manages our sexlife because of his gym workouts and he doesn’t want to be tired.. he turns it back on me saying I should have his well being at heart and accept him for who he is and what he has to offer… he is 60 years old and Italian, has lived with his parents for 30years, is a hairdresser (so has income) suffers anxiety, takes medication which he increases when he can’t cope and if I question how I feel about anything or not getting my needs met has a very bad temper…we have had sooo many arguments about him sleeping over.. his good points probably keep me in the relationship… he’s very generous, easy going when not stressed, similar fitness goals but not intellectually on the same page as me…I’m not great with trying to sort out what’s not my fault..because I understand you have to accept people for who they are.. your thoughts would be appreciated

  29. Sharon Willard says:

    God bless you for this video… so much solace in the truth of it all. My days of packing my bags for guilt trips are over…

  30. Lorena Guzmán Cuevas says:

    I don’t need him to fight for shit I don’t want him he’s a lying cheating dog that had kids with two whores they met at convenience stores so let me tell you I don’t know why you’re even messaging me because I don’t want the motherfuker back right besides he wanted to fuck around with my heart he gave up on our relationship he fucked up not me that’s why he’s sitting in Immigration jail he’ll sit there for a few years and then he’ll be deported say I like my way of doing things it’s better than Karma it’s a lot faster any man that cheats on a woman that has cancer a man that all he had to do was put $100 in gas to get me to surgery that would have cured my cancer he said he didn’t have the money but the next day the son of a bitch went and bought a damn truck cash money 4500 but he didn’t have the hundred to save my life so he can go fuck himself and fuck his horse and come to find out he’s been hiding money so that’s my next agenda find me a good ass lawyer and take everything he’s got he deserves it after I paid everything through the whole marriage 14 goddamn motherfuking years I thought if putting money away for us as a family know he’s been there way to sleep around with this whores and paper hotels and everything else oh I’m not in pain and I’m not suffering he’s the one in pain and suffering so if you don’t mind I don’t give a shit if it gets better and I am not in interested in getting back with him I don’t want him so goodbye have a good day bye bye

  31. Sylvia Cooper says:

    Omg I so needed this, you saved me!!!! He just broke up with me this past Friday saying he needed to focus on him but he keeps texting and face timing and wanting me to help him, it is so confusing and if I dont respond he acts butthurt. I know he isnt good for me but I miss us. How can I move on if he still acts like we are dating,?

  32. ROSA says:

    What a powerful video and message…..that’s exactly what happened to me. He broke up with me and I try it to fix it without success, understanding later that he was the one without appreciation of our relationship, not the man I thought he was, not the man I deserve and wanted with me. I decided to fix myself up and continue despite the pain and now I’m changing my work and talking with another guy with different perspectives. I’m still think sometimes about the man that left, but he makes me realized by himself he wasn’t meant to me. Excellent video Matt. Thanks.

  33. Vikram Kumar says:

    I am very poor man sir please give me job sir

  34. maryani says:

    llike men who can accept me.. as is and honest patient polite good faithful dear loving responsibility OK thanks so much.

  35. Julie says:

    So true! I left a 25 year marriage after my husband became a verbally abusive alcoholic,, who became just like his Dad …at the 23rd year. He finally got a job in the city after being on the road for 23 years. I watched his parents in their dysfunctional marriage. His Mom put up with that crap for 63 years until she died last Father’s Day. That would of been me continuing that toxic relationship. So, I told him to get help for his alcoholism or else there would be no future in our marriage. He thought about it and his bottle & his drinking buddies were more important than me. I have been divorced for 10 years now…and have no regrets! I got rid of him! ;)

  36. Zaituni says:

    I do that to my ex after a while or a year asking to be together again irefuse.from what i belive that relationship will never have a trust on it(so am i right or wrong)

  37. Asnath says:

    This spoke directly to what am going through at the moment. One is left hanging not knowing where to hold onto, questions without answers flow most of them being ‘why’. how beautiful to learn that it is not my business to amend what he broke. He gave up his powers, so he is the loser. Thank you Matthew
