Dear you, (a letter to everyone who has ever hurt me…)

Dear you, 

Before I start I want you to know that this is not a hate letter or a bashing session but rather a thank you note to friends and people that at one point I grew very close to (not like romantic or dating) people that meant something to me. I am not writing this about a specific person so if you feel some type of way while reading this…well that should tell you something. Anyway, I am writing this because at one point you meant a lot to me…a whole lot. You were somebody who made a big impact on my life in one way or another and although people have problems and sometimes life just happens…I always thought you would have my back and be there for me but, oh how quickly things can change. Did I ever tell about how bad I struggled with low self-esteem, depression and, anxiety for years so just imagine how much harder it is to lose someone that you thought cared about you when you already feel so alone in the world…yeah you can just think on that for a little bit. Some of you never treated me right but I was to blind to see it I mean some of you blatantly treated me like crap and only made me feel like I had value when I would do something that benefited you…well that’s a lie because there were a lot of times when you were nice just because you cared. Well you know what, thank you because I know my worth now. I don’t feel the desire to be accepted and I’ve learned to walk away and be okay with having to walk alone. Thank you because I realized that sometimes I can be too nice and give too many chances and I let stuff go that I shouldn’t have. This is not me trying to say I was perfect and did everything right because I know I didn’t but I learned how to treat people so if I could help it I wouldn’t hurt people. And while I’m mentioning it thank you for helping me see where I fall short  so that I can be the best version of myself. Thank you for the time spent, memories made and love shared because no matter what happened or will happen I would not be who I am if those experiences (the good, the bad and, the ugly ) never happened. So, no hard feelings, no love lost I just wish you all the best. ✌🏾😘💯👋🏾
