It has been decades, but what can I say, I’m a slow learner. I need you to know a few things that I was unable to say at the time.
I was young, immature, and emotionally stunted during that time in my life. You were a perfect partner, and friend, and I treated you poorly. When I ended things between us, I did what I thought was best for us both by cutting ties. I was confident it was over at the time, and I didn’t want to string you along, and make you feel that there was a chance that we would get back together. I thought cutting ties was the best way to do that. It’s only now, after 20 years that I realize how wrong my actions were. I regret my actions, and am deeply sorry for ever having hurt you.
I heard you have a family now. I wish you and your family success and happiness. I’ll always make myself available should you ever want to reconnect.
