You Promised To Stay Forever, You Lied, But That’s Okay

Thank you…

I know I have been remiss in telling you that, but I am truly thankful for the time we had together.

Thank you for all the good.

Thank you for all the bad.

We did stumble around a bit together working our way through the relationship we had at that time, it made us who we are today.

We were never really destined to be a forever love, we just thought we were.

After all this time I finally understand.

I do understand that we no longer have the love for each other and to give each other, and to stay for staying sake would be wrong.

I understand that you felt your needs were more important than ‘our needs’ your happiness was more important than ‘our happiness’.

I understand it was not our time, and perhaps it never really was, just a lesson in life’s long road.

I want you to know this all of this as I feel it needs to be said.

I am not mad at you, that’s important to me that you know that.

I don’t need to avoid you, why would I we have a history together.

I have nothing to be ashamed of, I did what I felt was right at the time.

I don’t hate you and I will never do that, hate is a wasted emotion, we both know that plus that would indicate I have feelings for you still, and I don’t.

What we had was real, it just didn’t last, and that happens to so many relationships if we all found ‘the one’ first time it would be a strange existence in my opinion.

You are no longer the centre of my world, and I no longer yours.

We are memories of a time past, like an old movie, full of good and bad scenes, but no happily ever after.

I hope you find true love as I know you seek that more than anything.

As for me, I off to have a wild adventure of the next stage of my life, I’m preparing to travel and see new things, experience a whole new way of life, I’m sure I’ll have a few romantic interludes along the way, but right now I’m no longer looking for the one, I’m looking for ‘me’ I know she’s out there somewhere.

I am ready…
