This is a tough one as I don’t usually share things about my love-life online, but hey, its part of the challenge. I am going to base this on the boyfriend I had in my late teens – as my latest boyfriend seems to jump in and out of my life still, and therefore I do not yet consider him to be an ‘ex’.
So here goes…
Thankyou for showing me I deserve to be loved for my complete and honest self. For accepting every facet of who I am and proving that I don’t have to be anything or anyone other than ‘me’ to deserve the love and respect of another.
Thankyou for letting me be a big part of your life and family. For letting me in on your secrets, fears and thoughts. Thankyou for trusting me with your personal problems and listening to my advice.
Thankyou for making me laugh, smile, and feel confidence at such a young and impressionable period of my life; for making an effort with my Dad and my sister, and just being a kind and sweet person in general.
I’m sorry I stopped loving you.
I never meant to hurt you as much as I did and if I could take certain things back from the aftermath of our break-up I would.
I’m sure we can both agree we were young, too young, and needed to figure out life for ourself before we could even attempt to have some sort of life together.
Even though everything went to s**t, I have nothing but respect for you as a human, wish you all the best in your current/future relationships and see your future as very, very bright (I dated you after all!)
