To the guy who made me feel I wasn't worthy,

You were my whole world. I turned my life upside-down for you, and you acted as though I wasn't anything special.

I'm done crying and hating myself for ever believing your lies.

I'm here to tell you that I know what I deserve and I know my worth. You don't go around hurting the people that you claim you "love". Love isn't a word that should be used lightly and this thrown around like nothing. Love is sacred. It should make you feel on top of the world, and like you can do anything you set your mind to.

So, to the jerk who broke my heart, 

You helped me grow, although in ways I didn't ever imagine, nonetheless, I have changed into someone that I know others can look up to and strive to be.

You do not control my happiness anymore. You are merely a faint memory of what was.
