We must point out that we have international readers where English may not be their first language.  And did you mean to use an ellipsis?

An ellipsis is a set of three periods ( . . . ) indicating an omission. Each period should have a single space on either side, except when adjacent to a quotation mark, in which case there should be no space.

An ellipsis can also indicate hesitation, though in this case the punctuation is more accurately described as suspension points.

I wasn’t really . . . well, what I mean . . . see, the thing is . . . I didn’t mean it.

And then there are the two periods at the end of your supposed sentence.  Tragic.
