We say endings are just beginnings but nobody told me about the pain that comes with the transition.
Today, after 6 years and 5 months, I finally decided to end a relationship with someone who has been with me through my late twenties and all those transitions in my career, family and life in general. I guess the 7 yr curse came early. And in the middle of this pandemic I found myself realizing again that I can survive even the most hurtful goodbyes with a handful of loving, loyal and supportive friends.
So goodbye to a love that I nurtured for the longest time. Goodbye to a love that has left me with a lot of memories to smile about. Though the ending was bitter, there were a lot of things I was thankful for. Though trust was broken, I learned that I need to value what I have and protect it but at the same time know that more than anything else I should stand with the values I cherish. And yes, timing is everything. I didn’t consider this before but now I understand that it’s important for 2 people to be at the same stage of their lives.
Thank you for molding me into the person that I am now. I will gladly let you go so we can both grow.
