Why I Left You For Someone Else

Screen Shot 2013-12-03 at 2.53.59 PM

I left you for someone else because I was unhappy. Because, deep down, I knew we had nothing in common. It was so easy to walk right out the door. It was so easy to pretend I didn’t care about you in the first place.

But then I realized I was just trying to run away from my feelings by getting in someone else’s bed. I decided to run as fast as I could until I couldn’t run any more. Because that was easier than facing our problems.

I left you because he smiled at me. Because he pulled my chair out, complimented me, introduced me to his friends- and I felt special again. I left you because I didn’t feel special anymore.

I left you because my career was more important to me than us.

I left you because I didn’t want to fight for us anymore. Because a stranger in a bar had less baggage than you and I had, because he was a shadow or a temporary imprint that could never overlap the hold you had on my heart. And that was easier.

I left you because I was sick of not growing. I was sick of staying in the same place. Because my branches were reaching in every direction, and yours weren’t getting enough water. I left you because I wanted to see new sunsets, meet new people, breathe new air, FEEL something other than what you were giving me.

But most of all, I left you so that both of us could be happier. And I don’t regret it. TC mark

Nothing scares me more than someone loving me one day and deciding they don’t want me the next. Nothing terrifies me more than being so close to someone and then watching them become a stranger again.
