Remember the night you told me I should find someone else, that you couldn’t give me what I needed?
Logically, it made sense. But, what I didn’t understand was how 2 people who cared about each other couldn’t work things out.
Then, it hit me…hard…
Only 1 of us was trying, and that 1 of us was me. I broke my own rules, removed my own boundaries, and put your needs before mine.
Only to hear, it’s too complicated, or it’s not the right time. Who am I to judge ~ right? People make their own choices, and you made yours.
Although, I didn’t agree. I had to live with it, and accepting your choice wasn’t easy for me.
As time passed, I realized that I do deserve so much more from a relationship. I deserve someone who is willing to communicate when conversations are difficult; someone who chooses to stay, not leave, because they love me and value us.
So I took your advice. I found someone else. Someone I knew for a long time. Someone who stayed by me for all the beginnings, the middles, and the ends.
At first, it seemed strange, like something was missing or broken. Yet, the more time we spent together; the more I appreciated this person and their presence in my life. I felt peace in my mind, and in my heart.
But here’s the thing. I can almost guarantee, the “someone else” you told me to find, is not the person you thought it would be.
For you see, that someone else is me.
I found her again. Oh, she’s not the same person I knew before; she’s different. Yes, she is still kind and thoughtful with radiant brown eyes and a smile that lights up a room. But, she is stronger.
She stands with confidence, she no longer doubts her self-worth, and she is just as incredible as you remember.
So, because of her, I found my happily ever after. I hope you find yours too.
