To The Girl Who Let Him Go

Jeremy Bishop

To the girl who let him go, I personally don’t know you and yet I’ve heard so much about you.

I know I should probably hate you for hurting him multiple times and for letting him doubt that he can love again, but I don’t. In fact, I want to say thank you.

Thank you for breaking his heart in a million pieces so that I can glue them back together and love him fully. Thank you for losing his trust several times so that he can learn how valuable it is in a relationship. Thank you for letting him go so that he can freely walk out of your life and open the door to someone else who deserves him more… me.

Thank you for giving me the chance to meet a guy like him who’s worthy of my time, my trust and my heart. Thank you for failing him and not being everything he needed in someone he wants to share his life with.

You were the first girl he ever loved and gave his heart to and that is something I can’t change. I will always be the girl that came after you. And that is okay. I would rather be the girl who taught him how to love again, the girl who he gave his trust once more, and the girl who made him forget that his heart was ever broken.

I will take care of the man that you failed to respect. I will look after the man that was taken for granted. I will support all of his hopes and dreams. I will show him how it feels to love him right.

And I will love him for all that he is, and to support him for everything he wishes to be. I will give him happiness and a life full of laughter. I will challenge him every step of the way and to annoy him out of his mind.

And yet, I will be the girl who makes him realize he can’t live without.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be the woman he needs and to show him how beautiful it is to find someone who’s not only in love with my mind, but someone who knows how to strip off my conscience and sense of values. You have given me someone who seduces my way of thinking and at the same time, makes love with my thoughts. You have given me my person.

Thank you for letting him walk right into my life. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
