• So You’re Leaving

    Today you broke my heart but I kept on smiling.

    You told me you’re moving to chase your dream job. My heart screams desperately for you to stay with me, that I love you and that I could make you happy. My brain betrays me and makes me say that I’m proud of you and that I’m glad that you’re doing what you need to do for your own happiness.

    So until you leave me I’ll cherish every moment I have left and on the day you up and go I promise not to cry until you are out of sight.

    That is all I can promise you.

      I just went through this…wow it’s already been a month and half since I went through this…
      By this I mean him telling me he’s leaving to chase he’s dreams of being a famous artist, touring the country, being forced to leave me behind because he cares too much to make me live a life like that–where we’d always be on the move. Where I can’t pursue my own passions.
      I was heartbroken,
      Everything fixed itself.

      While I thought I was the one who felt more(which I technically still do because he never said he actually loved me)he still felt the pain of forcing this separation. He decided after seeing me again for the first time in two years that he still wanted the life he had previously promised we’d have.
      We worked out portions of a plan in which he and I can still pursue our passions and stay together(because he wasn’t going to move for two years anyways).

      I don’t know at all if your situation is anything close to the specifics of mine, but, I hope that it’ll all work out for you, and I want my story to give you hope.

      If you don’t end up staying together, then I bet you’ll find someone who’s even better.
      Regardless, I wish you much luck and happiness. 🙂

      Thanks, I’m glad everything worked out for you in the end. It is good to hear that stories like this are real and could even end happily. With my story he’s leaving to go work for the legal department of a company that he’s always wanted to work for… its been many many years of hard work for him and i’m proud of him.

      Hopefully our paths will cross one day again like your story and me and him can be happy together 🙂

      Thanks for the pick me up 🙂

      I understand. I think it’s great that he’s made it that far. And it’s good to be happy for them regardless.
      I hope that you two will cross paths again one day.
      You never know what could happen! 🙂

      P.S. I’m glad my little story was a pick me up for you. It’s good to know that you’re still smiling. I have much faith that things will work out well for you! 🙂
