Thank you for the hurt.

I know it sounds insane that I'm thanking you for breaking me down. I mean the names I was called, the way I was spoken to, and the accusations I received, I want to thank you for all of that. It is because of those things that I'm the person I am today.

Because of you, I realized how strong I was. I realized that no matter what obstacle or challenges came way, I could break through that barrier. I am so glad you broke me down.

You cheated on me, called me names, and told me I would never accomplish anything in life. After I left, I made sure to prove you wrong. I made sure to accomplish everything you told me I wouldn’t.

It is because of you that I made amazing grades this semester. It is because you breaking me down and telling me I would never accomplish anything that is making me do it now.

Thank you for breaking me into pieces and tell me that I’m nothing, telling me I’m ugly, talking about my weight, and telling me I’ll never make anything of myself.

Thank you.

I am a different person now because of you. I have never been more motivated in life. I want to accomplish all of the things you said I wouldn’t. I want to go beyond my horizons and accomplish things I thought I never would because you told me I couldn’t.

I want you to know that yes, you broke me down, but now I’m back up and I have realized that I can accomplish anything.
