I learned that it’s okay to remember the good times.
It’s totally normal! Don’t freak out!
I fell for someone who needed me and depended on me. He was like no one I had ever met before and at the time I didn’t know what it was about him that made me feel this way. It wasn’t until the spring that I finally realized what it was and that very same thing is the reason we can never be together.
Almost two years ago now I went through one of the toughest breakups of my entire life. But that’s just it, and that’s all it is to me now in retrospect; a breakup. At the time I thought I would die, shrivel into a ball of sadness and guilt, forever a shell of my former self. I was wrong. I became better. Two years later I am happier than I’ve ever been, in a healthier relationship than ever before, and with some insight I only wish I’d had before I made a total and desperate ass out of myself. But I still don’t regret, because I learned and I moved on, and so will you.
This seems like a decent idea, a win-win; maybe it will even end up being better this way, we often rationalize. “We won’t have the pressure and issues that came along with dating, but we can still be in each other’s lives.” Nope.
It was magnetic and electrifying and changed my life.
Get into the best shape of your life.
The truth about almost relationships is that as much as we agonize over their endings, they’re some of the best endings we get.
You don’t have to feel like nobody is coming to save you, because somebody is and it’s you.
