By anonymous “When you walked away, you thought you'd won. You thought you'd won because he loved you more than you loved him. And that just wasn't enough for you. When you walked away that last time— sent that last text— had that last call— you thought you'd had the last word. The best argument. You were content because you were right— and he wasn't— and it ended, just like you knew it would. And so when you imagine him now, he's still hurt.
Loving you. Wishing you'd call. Thinking you're the best and only person he can ever be with. You see him in that puddle of self-doubt you tried so hard to build into him. Well, stop. And let me clarify a few things for you. First of all, he's not there, waiting by the phone. he no longer thinks about all those good times you had, wondering if you're ever going to come back. Actually, he hardly thinks of you at all. When you stopped loving him, something happened to him alright. Something huge. That's actually the one-one— thing he credits you with. You taught him to love himself enough to know when someone wasn't loving him enough. And that is exactly what he needed. To finally— finally— start loving him self. So hey, you didn't break him, darling. he wouldn't give you that power. That man loved you in a way you're never going to find again but always going to look for. And trust me, you will look for it. But as for him? he's not the same man he was. Now much more than ever, He is strong and independent and confident. He is open and loving and free. So, when you think of him (and I know you will), just know this: you never broke him. The only thing you did was push him to the edge. Like, right to the edge. But he didn't jump, darling. He flew.”
