I spent my life loving people who couldn’t fully love themselves…

I was always there when you needed attention and my help…

But years of this caused me to neglect and harm myself…

Because all of my basic needs were abandoned and put upon a shelf…

You can only love someone for so long…

Before you realize loving them in this way is detrimental to you and wrong…

You weren’t made to complete someone else, when they should have taken care of their own heart…

Sometimes you have to leave behind your past in order to create a fresh, new start…

I don’t want to keep loving you when you don’t know how to love yourself properly,

Even after what I did, love and people to you are just…possessions and properties…

When I escaped you I started to love and care for myself in a way that wasn’t possible at home…

Now I know I wasn’t the cause behind feeling empty and completely alone…

There was a time I would have just accepted your kind of love, but I’ve changed…

How you treated me, how you loved me…that’s the real reason we’re now estranged…
