Best Thing I Never Had

Best Thing I Never Had by Beyonce

This is one of my favorite songs off of her latest album, which I just love, love, love! The lyrics to this song are on point as I refer to all of my Case Of the Exes. Ladies, you feel me? Here are a few excerpts from the song:

“What goes around comes back around, hey! (my baby)”

“Boy I must have been out of my mind,
So when I think of the time that I almost loved you,
You showed your ass and I, I saw the real you!”

“Thank God you blew it,
Thank God I dodged the bullet,
I’m so over you”

“I wanted you bad,
I’m so through with it,
‘Cause honestly you turned out to be the best thing I never had”

“Thank God I found the good in goodbye!”

“….sucks to be you right now.”

Like the video shows in retrospect, a young B at her high school prom with whom I assume is the prospective “ex” she speaks of, I’m sure we can all relate in some ways. We all had exes or were involved with (a) guy(s) in the past who thought they were big pimpin, assholes, and players. Then there were some who were pussies, jealous, controlling, and pure bitchassness!

Although I am now friends or in a neutral place with most of the guys I’ve dated or was “seeing”, there’s probably one or two I’ve ended badly with and just lost touch even through the years of all of these social networks. I’m happy I can be friends with exes, even if it’s just on Facebook or we are able to say hello or hang out with mutual friends and not feel weird about it. I admit to have searched on these Social sites for exes, but with curious and good intentions. I’d have to say though, thanks to Facebook and such, seeing their faces, their situations, who they’ve become, and who they ended up with……… Makes me say aloud and proud “SUCKS TO BE YOU RIGHT NOW!” aaaand “YOU ARE THE BEST THING I NEVER HAD!”

So if you are just a young lady or anybody who has been hurt, played, or betrayed by someone you think you love(d)…. Let it go! It gets better, trust! I think finding my husband 10 years ago has a lot to do with my being able to cope with my past. A chivalrous gentleman who swept me off my feet, made me forgive and forget about these scrubby ass wannabes in my past. You will look back at your situation and realize the heartache, fights, and tears were all out of lust, stupidity, and infatuation, not love. It may seem like it is all you know, or you can’t let go because you are afraid of being alone…. But that’s okay. Take care of you and put yourself first. Reflect. It’s okay to be single than to keep trying something that possibly died a long time ago.
