You hurt me. You all hurt me in different ways that led to heartbreak, big or small. You made me suffer without a reasonable explanation. I did nothing to deserve the pain you've caused. Maybe it was meant to happen. Maybe it had to happen to give me a little taste of heartbreak and to prepare me for the worst possible pain to come.

You taught me to be more careful and to build walls and to put myself first. To make me realize that I deserve the best and that I should hold back to stop myself from jumping into something without assurance. You woke me up from the reality that love isn't easy and that the right guy isn't easy to find and that good things take time and are worth waiting for. It made me realize that not all guys are nice but there are a few who are nice enough to be just my friends.

You woke me up from the reality that love isn't easy and that the right guy isn't easy to find and that good things take time and are worth waiting for.

The more I got hurt, the more I learned. Despite the pain you gave me, my heart is still open and available because I know the right guy could come any day. I'm not going to fall that fast. I'm going to think everything through and be careful in opening up and sharing my story. I would pay attention to the possible warning signs of guys like you, the ones who would break my heart without conscience.

It's not that easy to forget what you've done and forgiving you takes a lot of acceptance and maturity. You made my heart strong. You may not be aware of what you've done but I won't bother to let you know because I already made the decision to move and let it pass. Time took away the pain and now I'm completely okay.

READA Letter to My Future Love

You should not bother to care about me and I should not think of you anymore but I will always carry that experience in my heart as long I live. It was an unforgettable experience.

Thanks for the heartbreak anyway. Thanks for making me stronger. Thanks for being one of the people who made me who I am today. You made a little impact in my life. I hope you have a good life.
