Thank you for leaving me.
Because of you, I got to know myself better. Because you left me, I now know my strength – what I am and am not capable of. I have become more resilient, more open, more accepting. I have not stopped believing in love. I still hope for better tomorrows.
I have discovered the joys of simpler things and the mundane miracles that each day brings.
Because you left me, I got to widen my horizons. I met new people – people who are better than you are, way better than you could ever be. People who have learned to appreciate me – unlike you. I am no longer angry. Yes, I may be confused with what I want, who I am and what my goals are. But I am in the process of discovering what has yet to come. I am in my “meantime”. A beautiful place…a journey which has its ups and downs (mostly ups for now!). I am in the process of learning.
Because you dumped me, I have now realized my worth and I know now that you don’t determine who I am. I am me because of me and not because we were once an item.
I may be indifferent towards you and may never have the urge to talk to you again, but still, I am grateful for what happened because things may have been worse.
You are now a mere memory. Although you “happened” for quite a long and important time in my life, you now seem an insignificant part of it – just like a bad experience or a misfortune.
I cannot discount the fact that there was a time when you meant everything to me – you were my world. I felt that you made me happy — but that happiness was misplaced. Looking back, I find myself thinking that you were something wrong or bad for me – just like yosi. I know it’s bad, but I want it or think that I need it.
I seldom feel sad about what happened and I guess it’s a good sign. I may feel lonely at times, but it isn’t because I miss you. I guess I just miss the feeling of being with someone. After all, it was really a long, long time…
Somehow, the pain has eased…
My heart is healing and waiting for the right time and the right man. And though I may get anxious at times, I know now that what happened really did me well and that there are a lot of people who love me more than you ever did or could have.
So, thank you.
