Life is a crazy ride, especially in a world as wide and wild as this.There are always going to be ups and downs.
The people and things that you love today may not be the same that you will in a year, a month, or even tomorrow. Sometimes life doesn’t go the way you planned for it to.Sometimes the people you need the most leave, but that’s okay.
But, as bad as it was, I learned something about myself.
I would be lying if I said that I remember how many nights I spent crying on the floor. I would be lying if I said that I thought that I would make it through this storm. I never knew life could get so dark or that I could feel so low, but it happened.
I never knew how strong I could really be until you left me with no other choice.That I could go through something like that and survive.
When you love someone with all of your heart, it takes the wind out of you when they break the very thing they said they’d protect. When you involve someone in your plans for the future, it blindsides you when they walk away. When your life is so intertwined with another’s, it takes some time to figure out where you end and they start.
I will never be able to hate you. I will never be able to resent you for what walking away. All I have to say is thank you.
You broke me more than I ever thought was possible, but you also showed me that it’s also possible for me to be okay without you.
