Thank you for proving me right, for showing me that trust means nothing, for convincing me to open up and then leaving me stranded, alone, confused. I say thank you because now I know. I thought I did before, but now I know you lie just like the rest, you hurt just like the rest. Of all people, you know how silence affects me, how avoidance hurts me, leaves me trapped and shaking, yet you do it anyway. You choose to break me in the only way I can be broken–by ignoring me like he did, like he still does. Of all people, you know my pain, so thank you for teaching me that my pain doesn’t matter, that I don’t matter. Thank you for confirming why trusting people is always a fucking mistake.
