Thank you you for making me feel that I wasn’t someone worth fighting for. Thank you for making me question and doubt every little thing about myself. Thank you for making me second guess my actions. Thank you for making me feel unimportant and a nuisance in your life.
Thank you for letting me down countless times. Thank you for keeping secrets that everyone knew but me. Thank you for constantly lying about who you really are. Thank you for making a big fool out of me.
Thank you for bringing out my worst side.
Thank you for showing me that you can change for the better for someone else but you can’t for me.
Thank you for leaving even if I give you everything I had. Thank you for letting go and reminding me that I was the only one holding on.
Thank you for all the times you made me feel bad. Thank you for making me regret all the years I spent loving you.
Because if you hadn’t done all these things, I wouldn’t realize my worth. I wouldn’t realize that I should finally stop settling for any less than I deserve. I wouldn’t realize that I want to find a love that would never make me feel the same things you did.
And I know I will, eventually. I will find someone who appreciates everything I do. I will find someone who will never take me for granted. I will find someone who will treat me the way I should be treated.
I will find someone who will do everything you wouldn’t.
For now, knowing that is enough. I am enough. I know I am, even if you didn’t.
