Do me a favor and unlearn how to give importance to those who mishandled you. Do me a favor and unlearn all the things they told you about yourself or how they made you feel. Do me a favor and learn how to unsee yourself through their eyes or judge yourself according to their words. Do me a favor and unlearn how to give them more than they deserve.
Do me a favor and release their words from your head. Release the things they told when they were angry and the lies they told you so they could have the upper hand. Do me a favor and don’t let them be an example of love or friendship or family. Don’t let them ruin such beautiful bonds for you. Don’t let them make you afraid of getting closer to people again. Do me a favor and relearn how to love again without them. Relearn what it means to have faith in those around you and believe in the goodness of others. Do me a favor and erase everything they taught you about love.
Do me a favor and shut the door when they come knocking on it again. Detach from everything that once reminded you of them. Protect your space from their toxicity. Protect your heart from their games. Protect your mind from their manipulative ways. Do me a favor and unlearn how to give them any more of your time or thoughts or feelings. Do me a favor and fill your void with people who are good for your wellbeing. People who lift you up. People who remind you of your greatness and your potential. People who know how to value you.
Do me a favor and unlearn how to love the people who mishandled you. Do me a favor and do everything you could to get over them. Unlearn how to define yourself the way they defined you. Stop convincing yourself that it’s hard or impossible to forget them. Do me a favor and realize that you don’t need anyone who mishandles you or breaks your heart repeatedly. Do me a favor and remember who you were before they came into your life and shook your foundation. Do me a favor and learn the lesson they came in to teach you but unlearn everything else. Do me a favor and don’t let them win. Do me a favor and don’t be afraid to lose anyone who proved to you more than once that they weren’t afraid of losing you. Do me a favor and learn how to love yourself the way they never knew how.
