To My Narcissistic Ex, My Life Is Literally a Million Times Better Without You

"If I cut you off, it's because you handed me the scissors" 

You definitely didn’t break me, trust me, you’re not that powerful. I might have some cracks and dents because of you but I'm still standing. You lost and I won. You’re finally gone and I’m free.

There’s no stress, no drama, no crying non-stop, no more fear of you hurting me ever again. I’m happy again. I smile, I laugh, I make jokes, I enjoy being around people again.  And you? I hope you're still as miserable as you were when we were together.

I can finally spend time with my family without being worried about you sending me a message and them seeing it. I don’t look depressed or like I’m about to burst into tears at any given moment. 

There’s a sparkle in my eyes and a glow to my skin again. But you'll always look like the unhappy human being you've always been. Because nothing is ever enough for you, is it? Though I may not have healed 100% yet, I guarantee one day I will. My life is literally so much better without you. 

And we both know your life is a thousand times worse without me in it. Just admit it. 

My days no longer consist of doing the things only you wanted to do, I can finally do what I want to do. I can finally take care of myself without guilt weighing me down that I could be doing more for you.

And to be honest, I still have a tough time trusting people… and I probably will for a very long time. Because of you, I'm relearning how to live a healthy life again. But not every person in this world is as horrible as you are, I just need to keep telling myself that.

There are actually good people in this world and you’re definitely not one of them. But I’ll find good people. People who accept me the way I am. 

The ones who won’t make me change something about myself to make themselves happier. I’m looking forward to that day. But until then, I’m more than okay with being by myself and learning to love myself for all that I am. Flaws included.
