Thank you for leaving me.
Thank you for disappointing me.
Thank you for breaking my heart.
Thank you for the tears, the heartache and the pain.
When you left me, I wanted to die. I felt like I had nothing to live for without you.
I felt like I wasn’t good enough for anyone and that I never would be.
I didn’t think I would ever love again or even be capable of being loved.
I wasn’t sure that I would ever recover from the pain, I didn’t think I was strong enough to keep fighting.
But I was wrong.
It took a while to heal, to recover, to learn how to love and be loved again, but I did it.
You didn’t care about me and you didn’t love me the way I loved you, but that’s okay. It taught me that the world doesn’t revolve around me and that I have to learn to love myself.
From all of the pain I endured from you leaving me, I learned how to be strong. Sure, I failed a lot in that first year, but I kept on fighting. Even when I gave up, there was a part of me that was still fighting. And guess what?
I’m still here.
I’m not the same person I was back then, I know my worth now and you just weren’t worthy. I deserved better than you. And guess what, I got it.
The dreams I had with you, they were never attainable in the first place, you just didn’t want what I wanted, but I found someone who does.
Because of you leaving me, I learned who I was, what I wanted to do, who I wanted to help and how I wanted to live my life. Had you not broken my heart, I would have become complacent; I would have lived a mediocre life, I would have stopped bettering myself. But not anymore.
I have dreams and I have goals that I am chasing now. I have a positive outlook on life and my personality is completely different. I’m still the same person, just a better version of myself.
So thank you. Thank you for leaving me, for breaking my heart and for showing me that I wasn’t meant for you.
Wishing you the best,
