An Open Letter To A Piece Of Crap

An Open Letter To A Piece Of Crap

Thanks for showing me exactly what I don't need.

You came into my life at the perfect time. I was vulnerable, had just gotten over someone and I was finally ready to try again. If only I knew that you'd turn on me faster than I could breathe.

Things started out slow and every day I grew to like you more and more. Everything you would say to me, true or not, was exactly what I wanted to hear and I was slowly, but surely, starting to think that this could end up actually being something.

The thing I liked the most about you is that you could say the sweetest things to me out loud, not just over text. It made me feel like you genuinely felt what you said because you were saying it out loud. I guess that actions really do speak louder than words, because there's no way you can turn on someone you supposedly care about in less than ten hours. Unless, of course, playing with my head had been your plan all along, and if that's the case, I hope you run off the side of a highway into a tree.

Phone calls lasted for hours late into the night, and after we would hang up, I'd stay up for hours just thinking about you. It was hard to think about anything else and I was really beginning to feel something towards you. I was stupidly starting to think that this could be the real deal.

We'd both been hurt before and I was treading cautiously because I was nowhere near ready for the pain of another heartbreak, but what you ended up doing to me was so much worse. You just left with no explanation.

Unfortunately (for me, at least), things ended about as quickly as they started and you left me with little to no explanation, and no apology whatsoever. I was crushed, confused and frustrated. I just couldn't take any more heartbreak, and you pretty much pushed me over the edge.

So, I hope you're happy to give up a girl that would have given you the world so that you could earn the approval of your fake best friend. Sorry I was higher than your extremely low standard and I truly hope you find someone who wants to be treated poorly. If I know anyone who wants to get dropped, I'll be sure to send them your way. Thanks for your kind words, they mean nothing to me now and they shouldn't have ever.

Congratulations on your successful attempt to mess with me, and I hope you had fun. If you need to contact me for any reason, I'll be away at school building my education and a successful future. I'm sure I'll always be able to find you in the same old town working the same old job.

Lastly, best of luck passing your drug test to get into the armed forces. The last time I checked, the military wanted strong men and women with good heads on their shoulders, so you might want to also work on your character. Thanks for showing me everything to look for in a person I don't need in my life, you served your purpose.

Have a great life!

To The Boy I’ve Been Dating Since I Was 15, I Always Knew You Were My Forever

Thank you for showing me love when I thought I didn't deserve any.


Hey you,

People assumed our "fling" would only last a few short months. It's what everyone assumes when your first love happens during your sophomore year of high school. Yet here we stand, three and a half years later, more together than we've ever been. Although we've had our ups and downs, we still managed to keep our relationship going and to remember why we're together in the first place.

Many say loving isn't easy, but you make it a walk in the park.

You respect me in more ways than one, and you make me feel beautiful, inside and out. For a long time, I never noticed the beauty and strength I have within myself. I didn't see what others would point out to me, and at times I still find it hard to acknowledge my worth. However, you came into my life at a time when I felt I had no one, and you helped me to see all I have to offer. You helped me to open my mind to the thought of loving myself for who I am, and although the road is long and I'm not completely there, you've made me see how worthy of love I truly am.

Having you as my best friend, along with being my boyfriend, is the most rewarding feeling in the world.

I think the reason we rarely fight or stay angry with each other is that we truly are best friends. We could spend all of our time in deep conversation about any topic in the world and still feel engaged and ready to hear more from one another. Every single day I learn something new about you and vice versa. We can be ourselves in each other's presence and have fun doing absolutely nothing exciting. I am easily annoyed by a lot of things, but you are not one of them. Being with you for hours, even if we just watch TV the entire time, never gets repetitive or boring.

You treated me with the respect I deserved before I even realized I was worthy of it.

In many ways, I don't respect myself. Whether it be body image or letting "friends" walk all over me, I let many thoughts and people control my life. You, however, were the saving grace I needed. You've shown me how I deserve to be treated and how I should think of myself. Often I wonder how I got so lucky to end up with someone who loves me unconditionally and who values everything I have to offer. I say all the time that I don't deserve your heart, your kindness, your love, but you always remind me that I do. And I'm starting to realize that you're right; I deserve every bit of love, kindness, and respect that you have to offer. I can only hope that I award you with the same love and selflessness you give me every single day.

Three and a half years with someone may seem extremely long, but I feel as though we've been together a lifetime. It's hard to remember a time when you weren't right there beside me, and I would never want to imagine a future without you in it. There are so many more laughs, adventures, and memories to be made with you, and I only hope that I can be at least half of the person you are.

Thank you for pulling me out of the darkness. Today, tomorrow, and always.
