An excerpt from the article:
Thank you for attempting to dim my light so I learned that I needed to burn as bright as I could.
Thank you for being afraid of the power of my sexuality, and the mysteries of my eyes because it taught me that only those who can match my passion should be allowed to share in it with me.
Thank you for being scared of my intelligence and the depths of my mind, because it taught me there is a difference in loving how I look, or how I make you feel versus loving who I really am.
Thank you for not being the man that I needed, so that instead I was able to see the woman I already was.
I have wanted to write these things to the four men I have loved deeply, who have all tossed me aside like yesterday’s trash and discounted me as a friend, a woman and a formidable partner. I found this article completely sublime and appropriate to my situation. She wrote what has been on my heart for years.
