“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
– Dr. Seuss
One of the hardest things you can do is let go of someone you love. I loved someone with my whole heart. If that wasn’t enough, then it wasn’t meant to be.
Sometimes, people come into your life for a reason and maybe they aren’t meant to stay once they’ve fulfilled their purpose. I’d like to believe that my ex and I were supposed to be in each other’s lives to get us to where we are today. However, maybe we were never meant to spend a lifetime together. I appreciate the good times we had and will hopefully learn from the bad.
Today, I am letting go.
It’s time to close that chapter of my life. I don’t want to live with regrets. I don’t want to look back and think I wasted my time because I really did love him (even if he never felt the same). I’ve been so focused on losing him (or what he represented) that I haven’t really appreciated all the people that are still here. I am grateful to have a wonderful, supportive family and friends who have watched me cry, let me vent, and have been here to help me pick up the pieces.
There are so many things in my life that I am lucky to have and it’s time to bring them into the light. Smile, it only gets better from here. ❤️
