You hurt me. I used to thank you for that, but I don't anymore. All the things I thought you hurting me did, I was wrong about.
When you hurt me I did not get stronger, I did not become a better person, and you most definitely did not lead me to a better man. For a long time, I thought you wer the reason for all these things, but in reality, the pain you caused was no more than heartache and a waste of time.
I'm done thanking you. You did me no favors. As long as it took me to realize that, I'm glad I finally did. I don't thank you for hurting me, I don't thank you for anything.
You didn't make me stronger.
I had strength in me all along. The strength you didn't see. It may look like I'm stronger, it even feels that way, but I can not trust freely like I did with you.
I can't give away my emotions the way I did with you. That strength I have could have held you up when you didn't have enough. I had enough for both of us, and you failed to see that.
You have nothing to do with who I am now.
I was amazing long before I met you. All the great things I'm doing since you left my life, we could have done together. You had the chance be a part of that. I gave you the opportunity to see me for who I am, and you didn't. I'm still the same person you didn't think was good enough. You don't deserve credit for the fact that I'm me.
You did not help me see what a better man is.
I gave you the chance to be that man and you weren't.
I was lucky enough to find a man with enough patience to break down the barrier you caused. He saw me for the one of a kind person I am.
He matched my strength and showed me what I deserved all along. He would have still loved me, treated me right, without you having been in my life.
You hurt me, and I'm not grateful for that.
You should be the one thanking me. I gave you the gift of my emotions. I let you have the chance to know me, to be a part of my life. You were the one lucky to know me. You were just too foolish to see all the great things I am. I'm done giving you the time of day, you don't deserve it.
You let me go. Now it's my turn to let you go. All the things you do in your life is no longer my concern. All the things I do in mine, I will no longer give you credit for.
My only wish is for you to find someone who will treat you well. The way you should have treated me.
