when you are finally, undeniably, inconceivably happy. whats even better is finding out that the people who made your life hell everyday, just to make themselves feel better, are finally getting what they deserve…
I mean, I don’t want to sound cruel or anything, but there are several people in my past who I will more than likely never be able to forgive for some reason or another. But, the reason are always very valid, I promise… And now, I can finally say that despite everything I’ve been through… I am happier than I ever could have imagined myself being.
As some, most, all, or none of you may know- for a long time I was battling depression and such. I had my own demons and their causes. Unfortunately, most of those demons and causes were the people who I either surrounded myself with- or the actions that other people did that impacted me either directly or vicariously. I mean, in my head there’s definitely a top 5 list of people who have screwed me over the most or have hurt me the worst. Whether it be 4 years ago or 4 months ago… In any case, it’s safe to say that I can hold a grudge. Especially when it involves broken hearts.
I can without a doubt say that there have been two people in my life that broke my heart into a million pieces. One when I was a sophomore/junior in high school, and one at the beginning of last school year. I mean, there was also the loss of my dog, Tobi, and I still blame a certain blonde bitch of a roommate for that too- but that’s not what I’m getting at….
I really don’t want to name names or go into too much detail because I’m done living in the past. But there are two people in particular that I will never be able to forgive. There was a girl, she was trouble, and she ruined my relationship with the first guy I ever loved- and she did it single-handedly. Four years later; I’m not over her or his actions and the months, arguably years, of hell it put me through. But I must say, if it weren’t for you Kelsey… I wouldn’t be the same person I am today. So kudos. I’m sorry you’re dealing with some shit and a lot of people hate you, myself included, but hey- good luck to you and your career as a lonely barista. (yeah I keep tabs every once in a while.)
Okay, sue me, I started naming names… Sorry, not sorry?
Ah, well, then there’s the more recent heart break. This one was completely ridiculous and unnecessary and never should have happened. Like, seriously, I should have known from the first time we hung out he told me all he did was “hurt girls.” Oh boy, Matt, did you ever break me. It wasn’t until you that I had legitimate thoughts of suicide. That was all before shit really hit the fan too. You had me wrapped around your finger and then you used me and borderline abused me and threw me away. I can’t believe how much I would have done for you. I’m glad I gained some sense… But, I really wish I had never met you. The next time a cute guy in my class sits next to me and opens with “nice Nintendo backpack” I’ll be sure to tell him to fuck off.
Anyway, now that the ranting and venting is over… I just want to get to the point of all this.
I have had my ups and my downs, as you can now see. But, for a long time because of them, I was convinced that I’d never date again and that I’d forever live alone and be a crazy cat/dog lady. However, no matter how low I was or how far other people had shoved me into the dirt I can happily say I’m standing much, much, stronger now. More than ever, honestly. Why?
Because I met someone, someone who makes me happy and has convinced me that the right relationships DO exist. The thing is we’ve only been dating for a couple weeks- but we’ve known each other (no matter how vaguely) for six years. We went to high school together, had crushes on each other at varied times throughout, and now- two years after graduation we finally started talking and realized how amazing we are together. To be honest the compatibility scares me a little because it’s so strong. But anyway, we agree that in high school we never would have worked… But now, the both of us are happier than ever. We fit together so incredibly well that now I always have a smile on my face. The best part is, that I’m not afraid of getting my heart broken again. I mean, I truly believe that this could very well be the best thing that has ever happened to me.
And after some really rough years, I’m glad something has finally worked out in my life.
If you’re reading this…Thank you honey. I’m so glad to call myself yours.
And thanks to all you for reading this, and following my bog- keeping up with my life.
I am happy to announce that my life is no longer in shambles.
