I think you still love me, but we can’t escape the fact that I’m not enough for you. I knew this was going to happen. So I’m not blaming you for falling in love with another woman. I’m not angry, either. I should be, but I’m not. I just feel pain. A lot of pain. I thought I could imagine how much this would hurt, but I was wrong. Haruki Murakami
About This Quote

When a man says to a woman, "I know you still love me, but we can't escape the fact that I'm not enough for you," he's telling her that her feelings for him are a weakness. Even though he knows that she still loves him, he's saying that she can't be happy with him because she doesn't feel she's good enough for him. This is a classic example of a man using words to put down a woman. Sometimes, it's hard to know what is coming out of the mouth of your man because he might seem shy or unsure, but there are many times when he is actually trying to put you down.
