Dear the ex-love of my life,
It’s going on four years since we broke up.
Three years since we tried to fix things but realized it was time to call it quits.
Almost two years since we said we still loved each other and going on one year since we last spoken to each other.
Throughout all the back and forth and what if thoughts about us I’m finally at a place in life where I’m accepting it for what it is. I’m done wishing and praying that God and the universe would bring us back together. I know God and my momma is happy that I’ve finally let this hurt go lol. For so long I clung to the thought of us getting back together simply because your love, our love was the best thing I’ve experienced when it comes to relationships and dealing with the opposite sex. You weren’t perfect and neither was I, but our love was the realest at one point and time. If I'm honest I resented you over the last few years because I felt like you were the one for me and I just couldn’t understand why God wouldn’t bring us back together.
Granted I did talk to two guys after you, but nobody could replace you. Shit, hell, one of the guys I dealt with pissed me off so bad that I had to write a book about his ass ahaha.
As I look back and reflect on life from 2015 to now I realize we were young and we both had some growing up to do which is one reason why our relationship didn’t make it. It took me forever to get to this place, but I now know in my heart and understand that God had other plans for us, meaning we just weren't meant to be. On a good note, it’s a bomb feeling to say I’m happy and I’m at peace. It’s finally time to retire the name (ex-love of my life) and the hold you’ve had on my heart.
Moving forward…. I met somebody and he treats me so good. Being with him has given me hope that love outside of you does exist (No I’m not in love..yet lol) and it's restored my faith in knowing there’s still good men out there. I don’t know what the future holds for me and him but I’m hoping for the best, and you know I'll always be hopeless romantic.
If you ever read this letter just know I wish you well & I hope that your happy with someone great, and I know you wish the same thing for me.
