You’ve been on my mind a lot lately

LTME-postIt’s been a very long time, which I’m sure you’re aware of. I’d like to say that it was your decision alone to keep this distance, but I think we both know it was for the best. I’d like to say that I’m glad you are well, but as we both know I have absolutely no idea how you are.
The one thing that can definitely be said is that when we cut ties, we leave no strand behind, but slice right through until we no longer remember how to find each other. It’s amazing to think that once we were inseparable, the best of friends.

You knew me inside and out, and I, you. We were there for each other in the best of times and through the most difficult of times. We definitely managed to put each other through hell on occasion, but when support was needed the most, support was given. Until, of course, that final day.

I sometimes find myself wondering why we couldn’t stay in touch. Would it be so bad if we got together for coffee from time to time? Or if we gave each other a ring to see how the other was doing?

Using the phone to make calls has become archaic, but surely we could send a text to wish each other a happy birthday? Or a happy New Year? I mean, we’ve been through so much. You are a part of my life and there is nothing I can do to ever change that.

You can’t be forgotten because forgetting you would be like forgetting myself — impossible. But then again, maybe you are right. Maybe we are better off as far apart as possible. But I want you to know that I’m here for you no matter. You were such a big part of my life that I cant just forget that you exist. I know you’ve moved on and I hope your happy and I don’t wish any harm in your relationship.

I made a lot of mistakes and you showed me that. Im sorry for the pain I caused you. I have so much respect for you after everything you taught me how to love myself and be ok.

Idk if everything I’m saying now is pointless to you after everything but you’ve been on my mind a lot lately I just felt like I needed to tell you this. I’m doing ok and I hope you’re doing ok. You’ll always be in my mind and I wish you the best

    Ditto. It feels so familiar that I can use this to send to my ex haha. Kidding aside, I admire your maturity in wishing your ex well without being bitter and selfish. 🙂

      While I was reading the letter it felt like if I was readings it to someone special in my life.

    It just felt like something I’d gone through. It was brief but magnificent and devastating. The kind of thing that happens so fast you don’t even realize it’s there until you fuck it all up. At least, that’s how it felt.
