You’ve heard the saying a milion times. “If you love something, let it go. If it come back to you, it’s yours.” And so on that very night, I drowned in sorrow.
Every piece of my body, mind, and soul was aching. I finally let him go, I did it. I turned the other way for once, and ran with it.
Everything felt frozen, like time just stopped and the only thing that was present was my love for him. Unrequited love drives you to make these devasting decisions.
I wasn’t sure what career I was going to have in the future, where I’d live, or who my friends would be.. But I was sure on one thing: Him.
I was set on him, I told him this from the start, from the first day I ever met him, he was the one. He was always the one.
The magic on this earth collided him and I on that beautiful day, and I felt very grateful since. But as he’s taught me, nothing lasts forever. I had to say goodbye and channel my inner strength and courage.
At the end of the day, I whisper, kudos to me. Kudos to me for fighting back, for being brave, so goddamn brave. I may have lost him, but I earned a piece of myself that is irreplaceable.
