  • Dear My Ex-boyfriend Who Abused Me, I Wouldn't Be Here If It Weren't For You


    Dear Ex-Boyfriend Who Abused Me,

    I wouldn't be here without you.
    You abused me not just physically, but emotionally and mentally as well. 
    I have learnt to survive on my own self because what you have done to me as a woman.
    I have learnt to say no when I don't want something, rather than agreeing quietly with everything you say to me to do.
    I would not have grown and reassess what I want in life if it weren't for you.
    I know who exactly and what sort of person I don't want to spend my life with forever.
    Thank you for treating me that way, so I know what kind of a man I DON'T want in life.
    I believe everything happens for a reason in life and we can't control some things.
    What we can control is our response to situations. 
    We can't change the people, but we learn to respond to it differently.
    From the relationship I was with you, I learnt how to love myself more, and always put myself first. 
    Even at the time, I "gave" everything to you and you abused that.
    I wouldn't be the woman I am today without you.
    I am winning in life, and succeeding my goals one by one.
    You help me realise I have strength I didn't know I had.
    So dear ex-boyfriend who abused me, 
    I didn't go out of the relationship and learnt nothing.
    I learnt so much about myself more than you realise.

    Yours Sincerely,

    Suzanne
