Dear past boyfriend,
I thought for so long that you didn’t deserve the satisfaction of knowing what you did to me. You treated me like I was your whole world, until you got bored and threw me under it. You told me you loved me, and I stupidly believed you. If you hadn’t hurt me the way you did, if you hadn’t broken my heart and treated me like an option, like a child who didn’t matter, I wouldn’t be where I am now. I wouldn’t have this amazing boyfriend, who loves me and made me hopeful again. I would still be hung up on you, when there were better people waiting for me. Thank you for hurting me, you made me into someone who knows what she wants and knows how she should be treated.
Sincerely, the girl whose name you probably don’t remember (Shannon Major 2016)

Liverpool I left you, said goodbye to Anfield Road I always followed my heart, so I took it on the road Destiny was calling, I just couldn’t stick around Liverpool I left you - but I never let you down
