It’s not easy to look back on the pain I went through because of you. But I am proud because hearing your name doesn’t make my heart sting anymore.
I was the one who had to pull myself back together when the one person I thought I had a future with decided to leave.
And you didn’t leave in a kind manner. You left in the cruelest and most hurtful way you could because you wanted me to be nobody without you.
When in reality I was really a nobody when I was with you. I was someone who had no confidence in herself.
Someone who thought she deserved to be treated badly because she couldn’t find better and I was so wrong.
You breaking my heart was the best thing that could have ever happened to me because I had to put myself back together.
I had to figure out how to love myself and put myself first so I could figure out who I really was.
I am now a woman others look up to because of the pain you put me through and even though it wasn’t pretty I would do it all over again.
Because figuring out who you are as a person, alone, is one of the best things anyone could ever do for themselves.
Picking up the pieces of my heart after you shattered it was hard.
But learning that I would find someone else who would love me and treat better than you was so worth it.
