To The One Who Let Me Go


To the one who let me go,

It all happened so fast. Right when I thought I’d be alone for the rest of my life, right when I’ve lost all hope, you walked into my life and revived my weary heart. I thought to myself, “Wow! Right when I least expected it. That’s what they all said would happen.” And the rest was history. 

We weren’t together for too long, but long enough for this to hurt. In the time we spent together, I’ve learned that I could go from thinking somebody could potentially be “the one” to realizing that nothing is promised, no matter how hard I try to make things work.

I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t upsetting to discover that you weren’t as into me as you had originally conveyed. I’ve always played the role of “heart breaker” when it comes to ending relationships. Congratulations! You’ve officially shown me how it feels to be the one who must be let go. 

Life is funny. We experience happiness and heartbreak all in the blink of an eye.

But that’s okay. If we didn’t feel these things, then life wouldn’t be as special as it is. You see, life is magical. What makes being human so wonderful is that we have this ability to feel. We can love and hate. We can smile and cry. The key is not to fall into the traps of the negativity, but to bounce back higher than before. 

It isn’t your fault. It may not even be my fault, either. Sometimes two people just aren’t meant to be. Sometimes we just aren’t on the same page, and that’s okay. If you gave it your all, that’s all that matters.

I hope you find peace and comfort in knowing that you gave us a shot. I’m finding my solace in knowing that I did. Something and someone is out there waiting for somebody like you and I to stumble into their life like you stumbled into mine. It may not be this time, or the time after that, but eventually, someone will walk into our lives and make us realize that all of this is worth the ride.

And we’ll experience the beautiful ups and downs of life once more.
