Thank you.
I can assure you that it did not always start off as a thank you.
I have never met you, but for a long time I resented you.
Every time I would hear your name, or stories about your time together, I resented you.
I resented that his first kiss will always belong to you.
Or that the first hand he ever held was yours.
I resented that the first true feelings he has ever had for another girl, was for you.
I resented the fact that he worked so hard to be with you.
And I resented that he fought for you.
I resented that you got to know and understand his gentle and kind heart before me.
I resented the fact that you experienced how tender and loving he is towards the people he cares about.
I resented that you once were the receiver of his beautiful good morning messages.
That “babe” was you, before it ever was me.
I resented you.
Yet before to long, I realized something.
You left him.
You left behind all of the wonderful things he has to offer.
The good mornings.
The soft kisses.
The sweet smile he gets when he see’s the face of someone he loves.
You left it all behind.
And you broke his heart.
Maybe that was what was best for you.
Perhaps it was what you needed to do to be who you are supposed to be.
Maybe there was someone else.
Whatever happened, you hurt him.
And you know what?
That is okay.
That’s life.
When I found him, he still was not whole.
He was apprehensive.
But I broke through the walls that you helped him build.
It was not to long before I could not image not being with him.
But you could.
So I thank you.
Thank you for showing him what heartbreak is.
Because of this I was able to show him what true love is.
Thank you for stepping out of his life, and allowing someone new to walk in.
I will try my best never to hurt him in the ways he was by you.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to love him and make him happy.
Finally, thank you for hurting him.
It taught him a thing or two about himself.
And it gave him the knowledge in what he really wanted in a partner.
I hope to give him all the things you failed to give.
So thank you.
I truly hope you are happy.
I am.
And so is he.
Thank you.
