Thank You To Those People & Moments That Broke Me

Thank You To Those People & Moments That Broke Me

By: rebekka barootes

Thank you to those people who broke me.

To those moments that tore me apart and those situations that crushed me.

Without those people, moments or situations I would not be where I am today or who I am:

Thank you to the exes that took all my time, love, energy and funds and threw them in the dirt. 

Thank you to the one that was always taking but never giving me anything; I now know I need someone to be a partner not a dependant so thank you. 

Thank you to the ex that cheated; without you I would not have learned my own strength and would never have had the courage to move away. 

Thank you for showing me my strength, independence and power; I would never have found it if you had not broken me.

Thank you to all those rejection letters and emails from my many job applications; I would not have learned how determined and driven I was without them.

Thank you to jobs, media and strangers for stereotyping and labeling me; without that I would not have fought against expectations so much.

Thank you to those who have objectified my body; without you I would not have found the drive to prove myself in so many other ways.

Thank you to the men who have taken my power of choice by force; I now know that it is within me to not allow the horrid actions of others to define who I am.
Thank you to those moments of feeling lost and alone; now I know that it my choice to accept those feelings and that only I have the cognition to change it.
Thank you to those who have left me bruised and broken both physically and mentally; without that pain I would not be able to help others in such situations.

I am more than the heartbreak and the pain. 

I am more than the things that have been done to me and the way people see me. 

I Thank You to every moment, person and situation that has taught me about myself and made me who I am today. 

Without you all, without those actions or situations I would not have found myself.

So, Thank you.
