I Love You, But I Have To Let You Go

I used to think I had it all while I was with you, but today I realized I was never your priority while you were mine. It’s okay, because I have self-respect and I deserve to be happy.

Today I decided I should let you go. I am happy that you’re happy with her. Even though at times I feel like I could’ve treated you better, you’re happy with her and that’s all that matters. She might’ve been the best thing to happen to you, but you’re the best thing to have happened to me. And I thank you.

Thank you for making me realize that I deserve so much more than the heartache that you never knew you caused. Thank you for all the memories that we’ve made together, and thank you for the comforting words you said when I had to cry.

There is no doubt that you’re the greatest and kindest person I’ve ever met, and I have no regrets knowing an individual like you.

You’re a gem, and there should be more of you in this world. I am not saying this just because of the feelings I never realized I had, but you are genuinely the nicest person I’ve known and I want you to know that.

I want you to also know that I’m always here for you on days when you can’t sleep, or when you just need a friend. You’ll always be my favorite person, and I will not want to forget an amazing person like you.

Know that I’ll never stop loving you, but I have to move on and live my life.

I don’t want to be held back being sad and unhappy while I see you smiling. I deserve to be happy and I know it is going to be hard but I am trying my hardest to not fall again. The road’s a little steep but I know I can hold on. I deserve this self-respect that I’ve lost a long time ago, and it’s finally time for me to find myself and be who I am.

Thank you, for everything. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
