First time watching this video by gnash – I hate You, I love u featuring Olivia O’Brien. This song has resonated with me especially after the the last 9 months. Healing from a broken heart is never easy but you will become stronger when you realize that it is better to walk away when the love and trust is gone. Relationships are about you being strong for one another, but first you must be strong individually so you may be there for each other. There is no sense to be strong for your half, when you are falling apart. This is a great song and very popular this summer. The lyrics are powerful and so is the video cinematography. My favorite and most impacting lyrics from the song – ‘Sometimes you gotta burn some bridges to create some distance…’ I was blamed for burning the bridge in my past relationship, when to me it never seemed to matter when the bridge was never crossable for my love to fully embrace him. I once again learned that you must love and respect yourself first in order to love and respect others, I will remember this always.
The greatest gift you can give to somebody is your own personal development. I used to say , ‘If you will take care of me, I will take care of you.’ Now I say, ‘I will take care of me for you, if you will take care of you for me.’ – Jim Rohn
….. ‘If I pulled a you on you, you would not like that shit…’
I hate you and I love you but it’s time, you were my only true love and although I left, I have finally learned to truly love and respect myself. Thank you for loving me and for also breaking my heart, for without this I would have never become the woman I am now. Confident, strong, healing, loving and finally the positive Inner Bitch you once knew – Peace and love to you always, farewell my darling.
