    I hate you. I hate you for doing what you did to me. I hate you for stringing me along. I hate you for being able to carry on with your life. I hate you for hurting me.

    I hate myself for ever caring about you. I hate myself for not learning my lesson the first time. I hate myself for believing you. I hate myself for not listening to my gut. I hate myself for being your fool.

    Even though I hate you, I love you for showing me true happiness in my life without you in it. I love you for leaving my life so that good things could happen. And I love you for losing me so that someone better can one day take your place.

    I love myself for letting you go and finally being able to be happy without you, or anyone. I love myself for having the strength to be alone. I love myself; I have never loved myself before because I always depended on someone else to do it for me. Thank you for showing me how.

      Wow. I just went through a bad relationship. And I kinda hope I can get to this point and be happy with myself.

      I liked the story, but I have some degree of resentment that I don’t consider good that you have. Good luck!

      I could’ve written this myself. I dated my first love for four years and, 6 months after the break up, I finally have overcome an eating disorder and can say that I love myself for the first time as well. I never though that I would be happy alone but I can’t imagine my life any other way. Thank you for being relatible πŸ™‚

      not meaning to attack you, but at some point in your life if it hasn’t happened yet, someone will feel this way because of what you did to them. everyone likes to see themselves as the victim, but when it’s your turn, don’t hate yourself.

      I came here to write a letter to a man that has hurt me in atrocious ways. It brought me right to this. Thank you for not only seeing the bad but the good and expressing it here. Now maybe I can thank him for showing me that I am far stronger than I think I am.

      My ex-boyfriend literally just left my apartment after we had yet another talk about our future (or lack thereof). This is eerily appropriate right now. I hope to get to where you are.
