to the people from my past: thank you for the love, for the memories, for the lessons. I will always cherish the good times we had. I refuse to dwell on the bad. I have no harsh feelings; you hurt me, yes, but in turn I learned how to heal myself. you are forgiven, though I do not want to make amends. I have found peace. I am a better me because of what you put me through, and I am a better me for someone else.
