b1ackcoffee asked: Cowardice suits you well.
I really don’t understand how you expect me to want to talk to you after all the shit you pulled during our relationship and after we broke up. But never the less. If it’s forgiveness you’re looking for, you sure have a strange way of asking for it. If it’s closer you’re seeking, I don’t think you’ll want to hear and/or will listen to what I have to say.
And in response to your last message: “Hate me for everything I did to you. Hate me for how much I loved you. Hate me. I dare you.”,I don’t hate you. But that does not mean that I want to talk to you or see you. And if, as you stated above, you loved me you sure did not treat me like someone you loved.
When you love someone you want nothing but for them to be happy, no matter what that means. Even if they stop loving you and move 1,000 miles away. Wherever they are, whatever choices they make, you want nothing but the best for them. Even if you can’t have them in your life, you hope and wish them all the happiness in the world. And when they are truly happy, you are happy for them.
When you love someone you let them know whenever you can how much they mean to you. You tell them they are beautiful, not body shame them or poke fun at them for not being what you consider beautiful or adventurous enough.
Other things you do when you truly love some one is respect them and their boundaries. You support them and they’re dreams and goals. You want to see them succeed. Not build them up only to tare them down again. When they take time to make you nice things it makes you feel good and you thank them. Not make fun of them for misspelled worlds in a heart filled letter they wrote you.
While I’m taking the time to even bother writing you back might I add that at one point I really did think that I loved you. I hung on every word you said and went along with every lie you told. I shut my soul up when it told me that I deserved better and pushed away all the red flags in my mind. You made me feel like I needed you, like my life would end if you were not in it. I stayed because I thought you would hurt me if I tried to leave you, I stayed because I was scared of you. And that’s why I put up with you telling me that I could never be a successful photographer.“It’s just a hobby”, that’s what you said about the thing love most in the world. Or when you told me I thought too much, and that no one wants to be with someone with the mind of a 40 year old woman. When I tried to tell you how I was feeling you would not listen or you make fun of me for acting “like a typical woman”. When I was upset you said I was being bitchy instead of asking what was the matter. The list goes on. And the reason I stayed so long was because I thought I could try and help you become a better, less broken person. But then I realized that I couldn’t, only you can make those changes and you were not ready to make them. What we had was not love Dalton, it was toxic.
So if you did/do truly love me you will let me go. Let it go and move on with you’re life. Except the fact that I don’t want anything to do with you.
