Nothing Can Stop Me Now

With you gone, nothing can stop me now. I’ve realized that what was holding me back, was you. Now that you have set me free, I can finally move on. When you left me, I thought all was lost. I thought I would never be able to move on, that there is nothing, or no one, else out there for me. Now, however, I realize you did right by me. Now I’m finally free.

It took some time, but I was able to pick up the pieces and glue them back together. I was able to find confidence and love for myself again, without having to rely on you to get them. Your confirmation and validation mean nothing to me now. I look for it only in myself.

I believed in us. I gave my all to us. When you left, I saw how I never received any of that from you. I gave and gave, while you only took. You helped me see how wrong you treated me, and what I am not looking for. So while you think you left me broken and a mess, you actually helped me. Thanks to you, I know what I want. Thanks to you, I will never fall for someone like you again. Thanks to you, I can rely on myself.

I am not looking for your apology, not anymore. I know that I will never get it from you. Instead, I am going to thank you for everything that you taught me about the world, and most importantly, myself.

Thank you for helping me let down my barriers and just be free.
