I am ready to move on
I am ready to let go
I am done tormenting myself with what could’ve or should’ve been.
It’s time to let the past be what it is.
I can’t change what he did, nor control what he does, and that’s ok.
I concede it hurt, a lot.
But I am done letting it drag me, and my life, off course.
No more will I let this define me.
No more will torture my heart, over someone who has left.
The time with him – beautiful
The things I learned – a gift
How I felt towards him – precious
Loving – I need not regret.
I choose to love
I choose to forgive
I choose to be gentle
I am not broken
I am not lost
I am not a wreck
I was made who I am for a purpose
I need not hide it
I refuse to recreate myself for another
I am beautiful
I am whole
I am loved
I am protected
And it’s time I started living like it
I’m going to be me
Every imperfect part of me
Like I’ve never been broken, rejected, forgotten, left, or betrayed.
