An open letter to the people that have hurt me..

When you decide that you’re going to start trying to change your life, I feel the only way to truly move on is if you address the things that could possibly be holding you back. So that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m going to write a letter to the people who have hurt me.

All I wanted was a true friend. All I wanted was a caregiver. All I wanted was to feel like you meant what you said. I’ve opened myself up time and time again to only be reminded of the disappointing feeling that hurts just as badly every time. How can you make promises that you don’t plan on keeping? How can you make things seem so great and then disappear without a word? How is it so easy for you to disappoint me without even considering my feelings? It lead me to start questioning myself. “Did I do something wrong?” “Am I expecting too much?” I go back and forth between thinking maybe it is my fault, and you know what.. their loss! It never feels good to not feel like a priority in someone’s life. So what I don’t understand is, how is it so easy for you to treat me that way? Your actions affect others lives. I second guess everyone’s intentions now. I never expect someone to stay in my life. I strongly believe that people come in our lives to teach us different lessons. Like love, patience, forgiveness, and self worth! After all the hurt from so many people I can say that I’ve just been able to grow as a person. So thank you! You’ve made room for the right people to eventually come into my life and I will be the best version of myself for them (:

Love, Emmie

It has taken me a long time to get to where I am today and it hasn’t been easy. I don’t have time for people that are going to let me down anymore. I’ve got a life to live so either you’re in or you’re out (:

  1. Emmie I have thought long and hard about this one and it makes me so sad for you. The people who were your friends before the accident don’t know what they have lost, because you have learned the hard way what friendship should be. Those people are still to immature to understand what it is to be a friend and to have a true friend. Truth is the people we were best friends with early in life never stay in our life. People grow, change and sometimes not for the better. You were forced into becoming and adult with adult responsibilities and it stinks that not one of them stood by your side to help you deal with it. Don’t blame them to much, they lacked the maturity to deal with your accident, one day they may fully understand what they lost. You are right in the fact that they made room for the people who will be your true friends to come into your life and do you know how lucky they will be to have you, because there is no truer friend than one who understands what it is to be abandoned when things go bad. Love you Emmie, get out there and find the people who will stand by you no matter what.
