I'll Be Better Without You, But You'll Be Worse Without Me
You are going to miss me. I won’t even have to try to make you. In fact, this will all happen on its own. It will happen once you realize that nobody will ever put up with your shit the way that I did.
I will make you miss me when you’ve hit your next rock bottom and you reach for the phone to call me, only realizing that for the first time I won’t be there waiting on the other end. I will make you miss me when you send me a text only to realize it doesn’t deliver because this time, I blocked your number.
When you are lying next to your new girlfriend and you realize she will never know or understand you the way that I did, that will be the torture of missing me.
One day you will need support from your best friend and you'll realize that nobody will ever be there in the way that I was. You won't have the same person to always turn to when you don't know what to do yourself.
When you see that I am moved on and happy, that will be me making you miss me too. I'll be happy with someone who treats me in ways you never did, that you never could. Happy with someone who has shown me my worth and that I should never settle for somebody like you.
I will make you miss me when you realize you lost your chance. When you realize I really am never coming back. I will make you miss me when you realize for the first time that I won’t always be there waiting for you.
You will miss me when you realize I no longer need you. You will miss me when you realize that I am just fine on my own, without you. You will miss me when you realize that being without you was what was best for me all along.
