Making peace before the New Year

Making peace before the New Year

Making peace before the New Year

After the most wonderful nine months of my life with you as my lover, I cut all ties with you when we broke up. It also helps to mention that we now live in different continents. One of the ties I broke, which is trivial, but highly relevant in this day and age, was Facebook.

Well, after three months of no communication, I just asked to friend you back. My life is still marked with the sadness of not having you as my lover, but today marks a new day and a shift in my perception. My selfish bitterness over having lost you no longer overrides my good intentions for you. I say this with a little bit of contrived courage, but I am accepting you as the person who is not my lover, the person who may be with another person this very moment. I want happiness for you, whatever that may be for you.

And this makes me peaceful. At the end of the day, I do not have the man I have loved so very deeply, but I am no longer in denial, I am no longer bitter, and I stand with courage with what the tide will bring. I have faith that there is still a rich supply of surprises that life has yet to bring. I forgive. And I truly want all the happiness in the world for you. This has been difficult, but what a great beginning to 2014. You have left me a better person. For that, I thank you.
