you taught me how to love myself by showing me the consequences of hating myself…
you taught me how to take care of myself by demonstrating how far neglect and abuse can damage a person….
for all the darkness, on the other end of it all…is love.
the struggles and pain of life, no one stays untouched above.
love isn’t without its twists and turns.
I found the pages I want to keep and the ones I want to finally burn….
the nightmares of loving someone who could never love themselves used to haunt me with memories of you.
I once resented the pain you gave me…now I realized it was a precious gift, for it deepened my own love for me.
nothing can stand against love in the end, there’s no equal to what love can do.
never imagined one day….
I would be thanking you for being you.
for everything that happened to me…gave me a more loving kind of view.
