We have had such a meaningful relationship. There are so many times that I can remember when you gave me encouragement and motivation. You are always there. You make me feel welcome. Sometimes you even make me feel lighter.
I see you flutter when we first touch. Then you wink and I know it’s going to be okay. Our relationship has helped me grow and progress. I know you will always be there to bring me balance and a sense of reality. There is so much I am grateful for and I will cherish these memories.
A false enchantment can all too easily last a lifetime. ~W. H. Auden
It brings me great sadness to write this letter to you. I couldn’t bear facing you…I would not have been able to hold back the tears. I need some space and time to think things through. Lately I’ve felt a reluctance to see you and when I do spend time with you the disappointment that lingers below the happiness you and I once had is unbearable. I know this is something I need to work out on my own…it’s not you, it’s me!
I hope you understand. I do not want to hurt you! I just need to take responsibility for my journey and stop relying on you so much. Where I go from here I’m not so sure but I know this next step is important for me.
I’d like to stay friends and check in with you now and then. I care deeply for you. I just need some time to grow as an individual.
Giving up doesn’t always mean you are weak; sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let go. ~Author Unknown
