Dear Justin H –
I spent years with you, wanting you to just love me. I wanted to look you in the eyes when we were 70 and say we made it and continue to make it. You are the love of my life, and it all just fell apart.
What happened? How did wanting one comforting word turn into a divorce? If you truly loved me as you had said, then why was it so easy to turn from me and call me all those hateful words? I just wanted to know that we were ok, and all you had to say was you love me. You hurt me and betrayed me, I can never go back to that wife that loved you.
We were so happy in Arizona, that seems a lifetime ago, like it was a dream that never existed. I will never be the same again.
I think I finally have the chance to move on. I met someone that is the total opposite of you, he’s kind and respectful. He doesn’t let other women come into what him and I have. He is wonderful… and all I can think about is the marriage that fell apart and the husband that I lost.
You were a horrible husband to me, and I can’t comprehend why you married me in the first place. I can’t believe it was because you loved me. If you loved me, those women, they wouldn’t have been an issue for 6 yrs, and you wouldn’t have let them back into your life so soon after we ended. I guess I was the one holding you back.
Well, I just want you to know, that from now on, I take back all the power you had over me. I don’t care what you do anymore, I want to be happy again, and that means forgiving you. So I forgive you, you can never hurt me again.
Love, as always,
Your soon to be ex-wife
