I’m guessing you never thought I’d say this, but thank you. Even though you left, I learned a lot from you. I learned from your mistakes. I learned that I deserve to be treated with respect. Because you walked all over me, I now know when it’s time to let go of a friendship or relationship. I learned that if I’m the only one putting in effort, that it’s time to find people who will love me as much as I love them.
Thank you for teaching me how to treat people. Even though you missed birthdays, concerts, and basically my whole middle school, high school, and college years, I know what it means to be there for people. I know the pain that comes with disappointment, so you taught me to keep my promises and to be an honorable, honest, trustworthy person.
