being the one left, cause sometimes you dont see it coming

I think it's harder to be the one leaving, because (in the situations where I've had to) you don't know what to do, and even once you've decided, you still aren't sure.. Of course, it depends on what you're leaving - I was leaving a friendship because my best friend was trying to control every little thing. I suppose either one could be the more painful, depending on the scenario.

Being the one left, for sure. It can be sudden and you have all these questions for that person but they've already passed that process in their minds in order for them to make the decision to leave you. While that person has already started moving on, you're left feeling like sh*t about yourself.

If you don't see it coming, being left can be far worse.

Depends on how attached you are to the person.

But overall, I think being the one left is harder.

you make a choice to leave, you dont have a choice if someone leaves you...

When someone leaves you, not only do you have to deal with that, you have to wonder what's wrong with you.

Getting left.

Cus when you leave, you forget about the other person more easily.

Depends what the reason was for leaving in the first place.

it's far worse when someone leaves you

It's easier to leave than to be left behind
... I saw the light fading out

You might feel guilty about leaving, but ultimately you're doing what you want or think you want at the time, usually after plenty of wrestling with the idea.
It's muc worse to be left.

If you leave, its harder to know you hurt someone

But not enough to make you stay. You're ultimately doing what you want, whatever guilty side effects there may be.

I think I'd have more trouble being the person leaving someone else.
I hate, hate, hate hurting people.

I'd rather be hurt myself than do the actual hurting.

it entirely depends on the situation, but i guess in most cases being the one left

i feel like if you are leaving there is already something bigger and better on the horizon...

if you are being left, it's generally a big surprise and therefore shocking!

Being the one left. Because you feel like you did something wrong.
10 yrs ago - Tuesday 11/20/07 - 8:16:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
Being the one leaving. Because you feel responsible and perhaps guilty for doing it.

Yet you do it anyway because ultimately you want to. Whatever pain or guilt you feel is worth it.

I imagine that the only people who'd say leaving are those who do more leaving that being left.

I just broke up with my boyfriend a few weeks ago, and just today he left me an angry voicemail telling me how much he hates me and how he never wants to talk to me again.

I click 'Skip' every time this question comes up, but it keeps coming back and taunting me.

Holy crap, why won't this question GO AWAY!

enough of this.

Being left is harder because you're stuck in the same place, you're not escaping and finding something new the way that people who are leaving are.

The one doing the leaving because I am in control.
