When I met you I had this dumbfound belief that love could overcome anything.
You’ve set a standard few can compare to. But I know the man standing before the two of us (when that day comes) will uphold the values you have set for me and the example you’ve led my entire life.
But the one thing no one is telling you is if he liked you and was interested in you then there wouldn’t be an ounce of confusion.
You made me feel safe in a life where I’ve questioned everyone and everything and learned to only trust myself.
Be with someone you’d be proud to introduce your friends and family to. Someone you stand beside and still get butterflies. Someone who makes you realize why it never worked out with anyone else.
This year taught me to be my own hero.
And I know I should have had enough self-respect to walk away sooner but love has a way of making you do stupid things. Love makes you believe these lies.
I want to be the space in bed you don’t mind sharing and when I’m not there it feels too big.
In loving the wrong people and giving the best parts of myself too soon it taught me to be smart. It taught me if I want people to treat me a certain way it first begins with how I treat myself.
I’m letting go of a future that will never be. And right now I’m standing alone but I’ve never felt so good and strong in my entire life. Because along with letting go of the love I have for you I’m letting go of the pain you caused me.
