… for leaving at a time when I needed you most.
… for proposing to me when you knew you wanted to end things.
… for dating a new girl two weeks after ending our two year relationship.
… for leaving to cry over my father’s cancer alone.
… for making me feel fat and ugly.
… for never being kind to me when I truly needed it.
… for making it impossible for me to trust anyone anymore.
… for making me think that i’m worthless, unworthy and pathetic.
… for forcing me to carry on without your comfort.
But what I really want to thank you for is…
making me realize how strong I am. Because of what you did, I REFUSE to allow others to take control of me. I don’t let anyone in. I know that I can be alone. I can be independent and accomplish wonderful things in life. I don’t need a man in my life; I can be the strong woman I know I was meant to be. So thank you for the absolute bullshit you put me through. Without it, I would still be that pathetic little insecure girl who felt as though she needed you in her life.
