Sometimes, guys mess up. They’re human, just like you are, and that means they’ll make mistakes in all aspects of their lives, including romance.
Beyond occasional mistakes, men have long-standing character flaws. They might have a wandering eye, they might be lazy, they might not appreciate everything you do for them…
All these things can leave you anxious to make him see the error of his ways. If you’re wondering how to do that, we’ve written these texts to make him feel bad.
Let’s show you what we came up with…
Think About Your Approach Carefully
Before we get to the texts, it’s important to look at the reasons you want to make him feel bad in the first place. It’s always important to question our own motives to ensure that they’re sound.
Are you trying to make him feel bad because he hasn’t been paying attention to you? Consider the possibility that he may be busy with work, family, or friends. Maybe attempting to make him feel guilty will just push him away.
On the other hand, he may have done something obviously wrong. For instance, perhaps he has demonstrated a pattern of ignoring you, he never seems to appreciate what you do for him, or maybe you had a huge fight recently.
In those cases, a little guilt might be just what he needs to put him on the right track…however, you shouldn’t engage in abusive, harmful, and manipulative measures to get there. If you build the foundation of your relationship on toxicity, the whole relationship will end up poisoned in the end.
Be open and honest with him about your feelings. If you feel like you can’t do that yet because of emotional hurt, ask for some breathing room.
Taking the high road like this rather than giving into the urge to hurt him will likely make him feel worse. Being mature about the situation will inspire him to be the same way and hopefully encourage him to critically examine his own actions. Insult and manipulate him, however, and he’ll just feel as if he’s in the right.
