My ex broke up with me about 10 months ago after being together for 2 years. We've known each other since high school though.
He works in the entertainment industry behind the scenes and he decided that he wanted to basically "upgrade." I'm very earthy, full-time hustler so I have no time to be at Bergdorf Goodman getting fly. And real talk I'm poor as sh*t so yeah that too. I have waist length locs and wear sneaks and hoodies whenever I'm not at my day job. People call me eyebrows since mine are super thick and the most noticeable feature on my face. But I think I'm really pretty in my own way. At the end of our relationship, he told me I'm real regular and "basic" and that he was embarrassed to be out in the mix with me. I tried to dress up but he parties with rappers and booty models so in his eyes I couldn't really compare.
I went through a period of really low self-esteem after we broke up. He was really mean and controlling so it was great that we broke up, but I felt totally worthless for a long time. I started believing that I was ugly, even though I'd never had a problem with my looks ever in life. A few weeks after we broke up, he started bringing this big booty Puerto Rican video vixen around all our old spots and around our friends, calling her his wonder woman and dreamgirl and just doing the most. On top of all that, he was saying mad hurtful stuff about me to our friends, so much so that I distanced myself from most of them completely.
We haven't really spoken to each other since the breakup and I'm good now. I'm back in business and seeing different guys who appreciate my style. Anyway, Friday I get a package from his address...like wtf. It's four tickets to see Beyoncé at the Barclays in August. Awesome seats. He wrote a note that says, "Enjoy. Miss you, love you." I would give you the backstory on why Beyoncé is such a big deal to me but this is getting too long so...to the point of my post...but FYI it's been one of my biggest dreams to see her live since my baby brother passed.
In my gut, I feel like I should send the tickets back but my mom is saying that I should go, have fun and not worry about him. Should I keep the tickets after all that?
