"It’s like we’re the right people, but it’s the wrong time." I stare at my coffee cup because I can’t believe I said something so cheesy, but true. You don’t disagree. In some part of our hearts, we both wanted this to work.
It almost did.
That “almost” is both one of the most painful and beautiful things I have ever experienced. The fact that we were both honest and on the same page felt so comforting. Unfortunately, we’re standing on opposite sides of the fence, wistfully regarding one another.
So we made a pact; if the pain does not subside, we’ll reconsider.
I haven’t felt more secure in this scenario than I do this evening. While the window is still open, the door is shut. A decision has been made. It was the closure I needed.
We both apologized for the hurt and even managed to laugh at the situation. Skipping down the street, my heart felt light. So when I held you close that one last time, all of the feelings that I couldn’t articulate or that had become lost in the whirlwind of the problems pulling me down, I put into that embrace.
And as you drove away, I felt hopeful. I wanted to take on the world! You lifted my spirits and I hope I gave you even an inkling of what you gave to me.
Thank you for this. For everything.
I want you to know that I’m so excited for you and for myself. I’m so excited for your future endeavors; your goals, your hopes, and dreams. You have left me with a sense of positivity and inspiration that I feel compelled to send your way.
Yes this decision was absolutely difficult, but it definitely seems for the best.
It feels like I’m coming out of a fog - this dreary daze may finally end! I actually sense a breakthrough…
I know that I’m often uncertain, but I genuinely feel at peace and I wish you the same. I’m holding you in the light…That’s how I’ll always see you.
So thank you. Thank YOU! Thank you…
It wasn’t easy, it was very messy, but “je ne regrette rien.”
Wherever the future takes us, may our paths cross again.
