Thank You to the Lame Ass Ex Who Couldn't Care Less

Looking back, I was so easy to play. I was enthralled by the fantasy you wrapped me up in. I was a damn good girlfriend, but nothing I did was ever enough for you. 

There were so many red flags, but I chose to ignore them all. I thought you were a good guy and that I was just trying to push you away and make excuses to hide from my rapidly-growing feelings.

Boy was I wrong.

I should have listened to my friends when they told me that something about you just wasn't right; I was naive to think that you and I could build something real. 

But, I’m smarter now. I know that if I hold a grudge, I'll be giving you power, and I've already let you take too much. I'm done.

You could have easily told me I wasn't right for you and that we weren't going to work out. I would have a lot more respect for you if you did.

But instead, you played me. You should really consider acting because you're damn good.

But hey, I forgive you. It's clear now that you’re just a boy, not a man, and letting you play me was my mistake. 

You made me weak, but through your betrayal, I became strong. 

I'm actually glad that I got to experience how not to be treated by someone who (supposedly) loved me. 

In the end, you weren't a mistake; you were a lesson learned. I'm so thankful that I was able to move beyond you, even if my heart was broken in the process.

Thank you for making me realize that I deserve so much better than what we had. I deserve a guy that is going to love me unconditionally and give me the world.

I will never make the same mistake or be played for a fool again. I'll wait for someone who wants to treat me like the Queen that I am. 

Unfortunately, you missed out.
