I Don’t Forgive Them For What They Did To You

I don’t forgive them for breaking your heart or for making you put up all these walls around you to shield it so much. I don’t forgive them for making it so hard for you to trust again.

I don’t forgive them for how they treated you, that you always expect the same treatment over and over, and that you didn’t get to know that it doesn’t have to be this way. I don’t forgive them for making you lock up on yourself and making it so difficult for you to open up again.

I don’t forgive them for how they made you so uncomfortable with your own words that you have to filter them every time you talk around me. I don’t forgive them for how they shattered your expectations that you don’t give yourself the slightest chance to expect anything anymore.

I don’t forgive them for how they made you so insecure about sharing the things you love that you have to apologize in the middle of the conversation every time you find yourself talking too much about something that you love.

I don’t forgive them for how they taught you that showing your emotions is weakness and that you had to hide them away every single time.

I don’t forgive them for how they made you feel like you don’t need to be yourself just to fit in or how they made you so uncomfortable in your own skin. I don’t forgive them for how every time you get too excited about something, you had to dim this excitement down and not completely let it show.

I don’t forgive them for how they made you feel the need to always point out your own flaws and make fun of them before anyone else has the chance to.

I don’t know them. I don’t know who exactly did this, but I don’t forgive them for what they did to you.
