SY ,, Thank You!!
I would like to thank you for breaking my heart.
Every lesson I learnt from you is greater than any knowledge I could gain within the four walls of a classroom.
Through the pain, healing was the greatest gift you have ever given me.
I’m thankful for everything you put me through and here’s why.
I would like to thank you for your harsh words.
If it hadn’t been for the sharpness of your tongue, I would have never realised the softness I truly ache for.
The gentle words that will take me into its arms and hold me close in times of trouble.
Words are our greatest weapons and you used yours for war when I came in for peace.
I would like to thank you for being unable to compromise.
I can be stubborn too but I’m willing to meet halfway and because you weren’t willing to go the distance and meet me there, I won’t be returning.
I would like to thank you for making me feel alone.
From all the time I spent with myself, I gained a new best friend.
I discovered the power I hold in my own hands and the strength in my independence.
I would like to thank you for telling me lies.
Every lie you told brought me closer to my truth.
I found the most honest version of myself.
I would like to thank you for leading me on.
I grew tired of being pulled by your string and found freedom by cutting the cord.
You won’t guide me into uncharted waters.
I would like to thank you for being egotistical.
It showed me that there was only room for one person while being with you and not two.
I won’t stay where I’m not welcomed.
I would like to thank you for bringing the worst out in me.
Now that it’s out, I have room to let the good in.
Your influence no longer has a hold on me because your curse has been lifted.
I would like to thank you for refusing to change, because I needed to make some changes myself.
I needed to water my own garden.
I would like to thank you for being a selfish man.
You were focused on your own needs, while mine held no importance.
By being so greedy, I realised I needed to find someone whose hands will travel miles just to find me.
I would like to thank you for being disloyal.
Your inability to commit made me feel like I wasn’t enough, but I grew to discover that I was just too much for you.
I would like to thank you for the sleepless nights and the streams of tears I cried.
Within those sleepless nights, I grew tired of remaining stagnant and drowning in the streams of tears I cried, I eventually learnt how to swim.
Now I sleep like a baby and my eyes are dry.
Thank you for breaking my heart because I discovered how to put the pieces back together and become whole.
Thank you for letting me down, so I could pick myself back up.
Because of my dark nights with you, I have never seen the sun shine so brightly.
Thank you for disappointing me, so I had the chance to find satisfaction.
Thank you for breaking promises in the past, so that I could believe in the promises of tomorrow.
Thank you for not being a man enough to tell me the truth, your truth so I could discover it and see for myself who you really are.
