If you feel like this someone isn’t right for you, you can’t stay out of guilt. You can’t stay for their sake. No matter how much it hurts you, you need to do the right thing for yourself, even if it breaks another person’s heart.
Whether we parted in peace or in pain, I hope you can recognize the difference you made. You have made me a better person.
Forgive yourself for something you’re carrying. We all have way too much baggage, and it is too easy to wear your soul down to regrets and sorrow.
This time though, this time I am ready. I am making peace with my enemies and cleaning out my attic.
Let me be clear. You don’t deserve my forgiveness. You never actually apologized for what you did. You brushed away your guilt and lies as mistakes of the moment, yet still tried to manipulate me into being available when you were bored or lonely.
They affected us. Moved us. Made us feel things that made our hearts come alive. Stirred our emotions. Made us think. Made us feel.
I wanted the truth. I wanted it to hurt, because pain makes people stay together.
And it’s getting harder to keep up with you. To wait for you. To defend you. To believe in you. To believe in us.
Write everything down, pour your heart out in that journal and don’t stop until you feel free. Until you feel you’ve finally released all your thoughts and you can breathe easier. Then light the pages on fire and watch them burn in front of your eyes.
Once you decide to stay, you have to let it go.
