I Genuinely Hope You’re Happy Wherever You Are

I hope that you’re happy now, wherever you might be in life. I hope your life is filled with happiness and promise of good things to come. I hope you’re in a good place. I hope you found someone who loves you as much as I loved you, maybe even more than that.

Leaving you broke my heart; it tore my heart into tiny little shreds that were scattered all over the floor and starting blowing away in the wind.

I didn’t think I’d ever be able to find all the pieces of my heart to make it whole again and the truth is I never got all the pieces back of my heart from loving you and I honestly don’t think I ever will.

I never found every tiny of piece of my shattered heart because I believe part of me still lives in you. I tried to fill those pieces with others, but no one ever got me like you. No one still has ever understood me like you did.

I decided to stop trying to fix myself with others and started turning towards myself to heal. I learned how to love myself and how to fill my own voids.

Sure enough my heart started becoming full again, from my own love.

I never got all the pieces of my heart back from you, but instead I found new pieces.

I found new interests, new hobbies, I found new things that made me laugh, I became in charge of my own happiness. I no longer let others dictate how I feel. I no longer let you dictate how I felt.

It took me losing you to find who I really wanted to be.

It took me losing you to find myself. It took me losing you to love myself. It took me losing you in order to work towards becoming the person I wanted to be.

I can finally say I’ve found myself in this world and I genuinely hope you’ve found yourself, too. I hope you found yourself instead of finding yourself in a new relationship every time your last one ended. I hope you have allowed yourself to grow and to become happy on your own.

I hope you found the place you want to be in this world. I hope you found a job you love, a job you actually can’t wait to wake up to in the morning, a job you miss when you take a vacation.

I hope if you did find someone new, I hope she’s great to you and I hope you’re great to her, too. I hope you found happiness in all the places you let it fall through before. I hope you’re stronger now and I hope your dog is doing well.

We might not have worked out, but I truly hope the best for you because you weren’t a bad person, our lives just needed to head in different directions. You needed to work on you and I needed to work on me, and I hope you took the time to do that.

No matter where you are in this life, I hope you’re happy now.

I hope you can honestly say you’re happy now because I can and I’ve always wanted the best for you. TC mark

You look back and you just feel stupid.
You can’t forgive yourself for falling
or believing all the lies.
You reread every text.
You relive every memory.
And it all starts making sense —
he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.
