Dear toxic friend, 

You remember the way you never missed an opportunity to bully me? The way you spread rumors about me in the whole school because of fallacious reasons. It's been four years to that incident but everything still flashes before my eye. I always extended a hand of friendship towards you but you took advantage of my innocence and portrayed me in a wrong fashion in front of my classmates, always. I couldn't sleep for days because of the trauma you inflicted upon me. My academics went downhill because of you during that time. But you know what? I'm at a better state now. I prioritize my mental sanity over toxic people like you. I'm so glad you are no longer a part of my life. 

Someone who's happy to not have you anymore.
