Best Thing I Never Had

So today I am listening to Beyonce's Best Thing I Never Had and feeling really grateful for some of the ones that got away. Its weird how when you are all caught up in infatuation or lust or whatever you can't really see the forest for the trees but then sometimes something happens that illuminates the situation and your eyes are opened--you see clearly. So in this song where Beyonce says:

There was a time
I thought, that you did everything right
No lies, no wrong
Boy I, must've been outta my mind
So when I think of the time that I almost loved you
You showed your *** and I saw the real you

Thank God you blew it
Thank God I dodged the bullet
I'm so over you
So baby good lookin' out

I wanted you bad
I'm so through with it
Cuz honestly you turned out to be the best thing I never had
You turned out to be the best thing I never had
And I'm gon' always be the best thing you never had
I bet it sucks to be you right now

I get it because I have been there and in hindsight all I can say is...whew!!!! And be thankful it never happened.
