Keeping it Real

For Your Next Girlfriend’s Sake, I Hope You Treat Her Better

We were young and our love wasn’t the kind I would want to put anyone through, but we learned and at least in my life, I know I have grown and found myself from all of it.

I’ve heard from a friend of a friend that you are seeing someone new. I’m happy for you, but I am worried about her.

I hope you have grown. I hope your selfish, controlling ways are not what they were when you were with me… Because they ruined us. I do think you deserve to be happy, but so does she.

She deserves a man who knows how to put someone else first. A man who isn’t afraid or insecure and can love, with everything in him.

I hope you buy her flowers and take her out like she wants to, because she deserves that, just like I deserved that. When we were together you took for granted the kind of woman I was, and she doesn’t need to deal with a man like that.

I hope you hold her hand every chance you get and you never embarrass her in public. I hope you hold her close when things get hard instead of running away. While pushing her as far away from you as possible so you can blame her for your faults. But no one is perfect, not even you, and I truly hope you have changed.

I hope you have learned what heartbreak is like and how you never want to make someone feel that way again.

I really hope you’ve learned how to love someone because this girl deserves it. She deserves the best man she can get her hands on and, for some reason, she has chosen you. So don’t mess it up and lose a great girl, again.
