I know what I did hurt you and I know in some people’s eyes I am a horrible person.
Let’s be clear, though, I did what made me happy.
I was hurting. I was scared. I was unhappy. I found someone who held my hand through it all. I found someone who made me smile. Someone who brought light back to dark places I had lost hope for.
I was not going to pass on this love to save your feelings.
I was not going to sacrifice my happiness for yours, not anymore.
I know he was your best friend. To me, though, he became the person I could go to for everything. He was the one who helped me with the scars left by you.
You and your friends can say what you wish. Tell our story the way you see it.
I know our relationship was toxic. I know we slowly became a couple that was only happy in pictures. You know it too. I did not like who I was and where I was going with you.
I now have a life I can be proud of with a person who supports me. I know I did what was right for me. I am happy.
He is my best friend. He is my future.
And I am not sorry.
