Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened. That's the motto running through my brain knowing Chrissy Teigen is quitting Twitter. The Cravings cookbook author shared the news on her now-deleted account Wednesday night, explaining how her iconic presence on the site has turned into a punching bag for cruel commenters.

"For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends," she wrote. "But it's time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that's the right time to call something."

Chrissy explained her goal was always to "make people happy" but recently the pain that accompanies disappointing others is "too much" for her. "I've always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I'm just not," she explained. In further tweets, Chrissy said she hasn't learned "how to block out the negativity" and felt "honestly deeply bruised" by the trolling she experienced online. She said, "I encourage you to know and never forget that your words matter. No matter what you see, what that person portrays, or your intention." See her full goodbye message, below:

"Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends. But it's time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that's the right time to call something. My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don't is too much for me. I've always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I'm just not. My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn't sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as! Live well, tweeters. Please know all I ever cared about was you!!! I encourage you to know and never forget that your words matter. No matter what you see, what that person portrays, or your intention. For years I have taken so many small, 2-follower count punches that at this point, I am honestly deeply bruised. I have made my mistakes, throughout years and in front of hundreds of thousands, and been held accountable for them. I've learned an incredible amount here. God I have said f*cked up sh*t and killed myself over it as much as you killed me. But one thing I haven't learned is how to block out the negativity. I'm just a sensitive sh*t, okay!? I don't wanna be this way! I just am! But I love you guys and I cherish our time together, I truly do. I also hate you. <3"
