The best isn't yet to come, the best is always, you're the best

"i feel so bad" my friend said.
"i've wasted the best 20 years of my life on this man."

And I new what I was about to say to her wasn't going to be the whole Truth,
but it would be a Truth, the won that mattered.

"Don't think like that," I said.
"Everything he wasn't is part of what made you who you are now,
Strong, Beautiful, Full on All Heat Giving, and Loved. Fucking Loyal.
You have people who Love you.
I Love you. You better Love yourself.
Don't let him define you in any other way."

"His fucking loss, you gave more than enough." I wrapped it up, looked her in the eye and said,
"Know you're worth."
