I believed that you were The One.
I believed that you were the person I was going to grow old with. I believed that in you, I found my missing half.
I believed that you were my soul. My strength. My hope. My happiness. My destiny. My all.
And here I am, reminiscing about the three years we spent together.
Here I am, reminiscing about the moments we laughed and had fun together. The moments you were showering me with affection and love. The moments we enjoyed life and felt like the entire world was only ours.
I’m also reminiscing about the moments we shared our fears, disappointment, and sadness. The moments we felt grateful for having each other.
Yes, you were special to me.
You were the first person who stole my heart. You were the one who showed me what genuine happiness feels like. You were the one who taught me how you love someone wholeheartedly and unconditionally.
And you know what?
You’ll always occupy an important place in my heart. You’ll always be the person I’ll remember with warmth in my heart. You’ll always be my favorite story to write about.
You’ll always be the person I had to let go of.
And as for right now, I’m slowly beginning to accept that perhaps we were never destined for each other. Perhaps God, the Universe, or you name it, had a different plan for both of us. A plan in which you and I were never meant to be together. A plan that was meant to break our hearts.
Yes. It’s not easy being without you. It’s not easy to continue living my life without you being by my side.
But, I’m gradually learning how to mend my heart and heal my wounds. I’m trying to understand why you weren’t destined for me. I’m learning how to accept the fact that we were never meant to be together.
And that’s okay.
Because I know that there will come a time when my heart feels ready to love and trust someone again. I know I’ll find someone who will be willing to take care of my heart. To protect me. To cherish me. To nurture our love.
I’ll find someone who will make me feel like the whole world is mine again. Someone who will show me that love doesn’t have to be hard and painful. Someone with whom I won’t miss the things and people I lost any more.
I’ll find someone with whom I’ll be headed in the same direction. Someone who will be destined for me.
