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.
