Harsh Lesson

“Perhaps you were always meant
to be a harsh lesson. But that’s okay.”

Perhaps you were always meant to be a temporary lesson. A harsh one, but a lesson nonetheless. And perhaps you learned a little something from me too. No matter how much you rage and seethe and plot against me in secret, I am the same person I’ve always been. No matter how much you try to change me. I am who I am. Humble. Kind at heart. And that means I’m nothing like you.

That also means that
I still forgive you.
