I think one of the hardest realities we have to face is that when people come into our lives, it doesn’t mean that they’re always meant to stay. They jump in at these crucial moments and turn us inside out and turn our lives upside down – in a good or bad way. I try to tell anyone who’s getting over someone from a well-invested relationship that they were probably meant to be with each other at the time, but not meant to be with each other forever. People can be together to teach other, learn from each other, love each other, sacrifice for each other, grow together, hurt together, laugh together, and benefit from each other as much as possible. Sometimes fate will tear them apart, but that doesn’t mean they’ll ever stop loving or caring about each other, because chances are, that’s something that will never go away.
I guess you’re a perfect example of someone who was there to teach me that I’m actually not as selfish as I thought I was and that I really do have the capability of caring for someone more than I ever thought possible, loving them without boundaries, being there for them with 100% conviction, and always thinking of putting them first. You came in at a crucial time, and stayed until I wasn’t done learning all that I know now. I just hope I was of some help to you as you were to me.
It’s just too bad that after all this time, I’m accepting the reality that it wasn’t meant to be you.
