10th March 2013:

Losing somebody you love is like losing a limb but when one door closes, another one opens. Where am I right now? Depending on when you read this, I may have just finished work, I may be on the bus on my way home, I may be in the bath or maybe sound asleep. Wherever I am right now, I am happy.  One year ago, I was a different person. I feel like I've changed for the better. I managed to slowly come out of a very dark place, mend my heart and get back on track with my life. I did it. I am strong. I will never have regrets, nor will I ever forget such wonderful memories I shared with a person. I don't hate, nor do I love, but I thank. I thank you for making me a stronger person than I have ever been. Yes, you've made me extremely anxious, on edge, insecure about the way I look and I worry like no other; but from the pain you made me feel, I've got a brand new life and I'm so excited for what lies ahead. I thank you for making me realise I can live without you. I don't need you. I don't need to be knocked down every time, insulted, cheated on. I don't need you. I don't love you. I will never forgive you for the tears, ignorance, and betrayal. I will never look back and think "what if" anymore. I have now found someone who appreciates me for who I am so I am putting my two fingers up at you. These are my final words to you. Your loss. Goodbye.

XO love, Ashleigh x
