what they did to you was not love.
don’t defend them,
don’t pretend they couldn’t have known what they were doing,
don’t blame yourself for being manipulated,
don’t try to fix what they decided to break between you,
don’t let anyone make you feel bad for hurting,
don’t let them turn your love against you,
don’t mistake their cruelty for love.
let them leave.
they don’t know what they’re giving up.
