For All The Times You Broke Me, Now I’m Finally Saying Goodbye

For all the times you told me to keep us a secret,
when all I wanted was to show you off.

For all the times you told me to shut up,
when all I did was try to help you.

For all the times you resisted my affection,
when all I wanted was to hold you in my arms.

For all the times you told me to tone myself down,
when all I did was show you how excited I was to see you.

For all the times you shut me out,
when all I did was make sure you were okay.

For all the times you invalidated my feelings,
when all I did was tell you that you hurt me.

That’s it. I’m done with you.
It’s time for me to love myself more than I love you.
