What leaving New York has given me!

Open letter to New York,

I wanna say thank you!!!!!

My beloved New York,

Your city is not for the weak, yet you will kick the ass of even the fiercest, strongest woman!

And New York you have certainly kicked my ass all over this city. You have beat me up, swallowed me while torturing me in such a way that you’ve made me wanna leave you. And I HAVE left you for an indefinite period.
Not sure when I will be back.
I have held up my end of the bargain and YOU have YET to deliver!

” After all of the fights and the lies ….
It’s over
‘Cause if it wasn’t for all of your torture
I wouldn’t know how to be this way now and never back down
So I wanna say thank you”

Being away from you has reminded me how much I love you and how grateful I am for you. Being away from you has reminded me of who and what I am. Being away from you has reminded me that there is nothing I can’t handle. Being away from you has reminded me that I am a FIGHTER! And I ain’t gonna stop!

So for as much as you’ve hurt me, lied to me, cheated on me, taken from me, and betrayed me. I wanna say thank you….

“Pretended not to see the truth
You tried to hide your lies, disguise yourself
Through living in denial
But in the end you’ll see

YOU-WON’T-STOP-ME!”

I’m coming home!!!

Sit back and watch me take it all back!

And now it’s on REPEAT!!!!

And so it is. Namaste. Aché.

Fighter, by Christina Aguilera

[Spoken:]
After all you put me through,
You think I’d despise you,
But in the end
I wanna thank you,
‘Cause you’ve made me that much stronger

Well I
thought I knew you,
thinkin’
that you were true
Guess I,
I couldn’t trust called your bluff time is up
‘Cause I’ve had enough
You were
there by my side,
always
down for the ride
But your
joy ride just came down in flames ’cause your greed sold me out in shame

After all of the stealing and cheating you probably think that I hold resentment for you

But uh uh, oh no, you’re wrong

‘Cause if it wasn’t for all that you tried to do, I wouldn’t know
Just how capable
I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you
‘Cause it

[Chorus:]
Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Never
saw it coming,
all of
your backstabbing
Just so
you could cash in on a good thing before I’d realize your game
I heard
you’re going round playing
the victim now
But don’t
even begin feeling I’m the one to blame
‘Cause you dug your own grave
After all of the fights and the lies ’cause you’re wanting to haunt me
But that won’t work anymore, no more,
It’s over
‘Cause if it wasn’t for all of your torture
I wouldn’t know how to be this way now and never back down
So I wanna say thank you
‘Cause it

[Chorus:]
Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

How could this man I thought I knew
Turn out to be unjust so cruel
Could only see the good in you
Pretended not to see the truth
You tried to hide your lies, disguise yourself
Through living in denial
But in the end you’ll see
YOU-WON’T-STOP-ME

I am a fighter
and I
I ain’t gonna stop
There is no turning back
I’ve had enough

[Chorus:]
Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

You thought I would forget
But I remembered
‘Cause I remembered
I remembered
You thought I would forget
I remembered
‘Cause I remembered
I remembered

[Chorus]

Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter
