A simple lesson that everyone should know. Sadly, it is also a lesson that people learn the hard way; myself included.
Self worth and dignity - two very important things that one should never lose in themselves.
I’m thankful for the rudeness, the disrespect, and the disregard you showed me on my birthday. You showed your true colors, and it’s disappointing to know that that is now the man that you have become. I saw you being and doing something great, and I supported it every step of the way regardless if i was to be a part of it or not. I gave nothing less than what you deserved no matter how difficult or taxing or painful it could or would be. So you left. You traveled, experienced other cultures, and matured (or so I thought), but apparently it has changed you, which i expected, but i didn’t think that it wouldn’t be for the better.
The friendship, relationship, tears & laughs, confidences & fears, joys & hurts, and memories that we have shared - you want to throw it all away? Then by all means, go ahead. I at least have the decency to appreciate, respect and be thankful for all of it; no regrets. I held my end of the bargain before you left and I kept my word. It’s funny that for as long as I’ve known you, I never had anything bad or disrespectful to say about you until now. But that’s life I guess, people change and that’s a fact - some for the better and some not necessarily so.
I have nothing left to say because I know that I did anything and everything I could and if that was not enough, then sorry. I now know for a fact that what I deserve is a million times better than you. And I refuse to settle for anything less.
