I am sorry, but this is when I stop choosing you above anything else.
This is when I can’t anymore.
This is when I give you the freedom from me that you wanted for a long time.
This is when I choose myself. Because even if I love you, I am starting to love myself, too, and I feel like all the love I’m reserving for you would go to waste if I wouldn’t shower it to myself instead.
I am sorry for taking this long to realize that we really are no more. I should’ve seen how happier you became after you left. I should’ve known that you needed to be free from me for you to grow.
I am sorry, but this is when I stop hurting myself. This is when I set myself truly free. I know that this will make you less guilty for hurting me as much as you did, but I am sorry, I am doing this for myself now, not for you.. FINALLY.
I am sorry, but this is when you start to matter less each day. And even if I cannot unlove you just yet, that day would come, and that would be when you won’t be a part of me any longer.
Thank you for the four amazing years you spent choosing me, but,
I am sorry. This is when I choose to stop choosing you, too.
This ending — our ending — is still a happy one, after all.
