An Open Letter of Thanks to My Ex

Dear Ex, It has been a while since you tried your hardest to bring me down. All of those tears I spent on all of those countless nights. All of the pain I felt in my heart during our entire marriage. For all of that, I wanted to tell you-thank you. open letter to my ex Thank you for picking a fight almost daily over the stupidest things. You taught me the correct and the incorrect way to argue back. You purposely pushed me to a breakdown so that I would never have to go there again. Thank you for your lack of affection. You taught me that missing compliments, absent touches, and separate sides of the bed do, in fact, affect me. I have learned that I need physical reassurance and verbal affirmation from time to time. I have also learned that such a need, is okay. Thank you for forcing me to sit on the couch and watch football every Saturday. You taught me that I really have better things to do than have my life revolve around a game, and vice versa. Thank you for putting me through the roughest times of my life. You taught me that I can survive without you and actually be quite better alone. Thank you for being so into yourself. You taught me to care more about me and how I felt, for once. Thank you for your threats of divorce every other month. You taught me to finally call your bluff and to go through with it, myself. By doing so, I never felt more independent or strong than I do now. You exiting stage-right from my life, was the most humane action of our entire relationship. And, finally, thank you for helping create a me who is loved. By someone else who deserves me. I am now remarried to a beautiful man, and have been given a beautiful son. I only have you to thank for that. If it weren't for you and the shit you put me through, I wouldn't be happy.   Are you also thankful for a past relationship? Let us know why!   Do you follow us on Instagram?
