Thank You for Breaking My Heart

Dear ex,

I didn’t understand why it had to end at the time but now I realize it was a blessing in disguise. You showed me what it felt like to be loved but you also gave me the opportunity to love myself. It took losing you for me to step back and find myself. I love the woman I’ve become. I’m comfortable in my own skin, I have a four year plan, and I’ve surrounded myself with amazing people.


Don’t get me wrong, what you did hurt but I don’t hate you. Not anymore. Now that I’m on the other side of things in my current relationship, I understand. I understand sometimes leaving is for the better. Maybe not in the moment, but in hindsight.

I’ll never get the chance to tell you how grateful I am to have once been able to call you mine and congratulate you on your new girlfriend. You seem very happy with your life and know that I too am happy for you.
