Thank You For Leaving Me: A Letter To My Ex

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.

Thank you.

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,
