A few months ago I severed my relationship with someone whom I shared the very high and low points in my life. It was one of those things we know has to be done but keep postponing. Eventually, I could no longer postpone it. More than any, I worried about what people would say about my decision.
We had so many plans for conquering the world together. We had ‘liked’ or ‘loved’ each other. Regardless, it was what was most important. Years later, we have grown irreversibly distant. In fact, we were perhaps the only persons who couldn’t see how toxic our relationship had become.
I wanted to prove the majority wrong. In the end, I discovered that I was the one who was wrong all along. My realization is not that we no longer love or care for each other but that our views of life are through two different lenses, we operate in different worlds and the things we want no longer align.
I crave so much more and I am willing to create the life and seek the love and everything else I feel deserving of. I have learned too that time indubitably plays a significant role in our own revelations and our experiences are our best teacher. I wish we would take notes more often.
I take this opportunity; hoping that one day my words will find you; to thank you for allowing me to share in your journey and for always being there for me the best way you knew how to. You are a great person and not being my person doesn´t diminish the quality of man you are. Now, I am letting go.
