I just wanted to thank you.
I wanted to thank you for giving me my first Real Adult Relationship.
Thank you for showing me that no one is a mind reader and I have to actually talk about what I’m feeling.
Thank you for loving me just as much with messy hair and morning breath as you did when I was all dolled up.
Thank you for 2 and a half years worth of laughter and near-constant happiness.
Thank you for all the stories that I’ll use to fill conversations for years to come.
Thank you for every kiss, every touch, every smile.
Thank you for the happiest and healthiest relationship I’ve ever had.
That being said, I think breaking up was the right decision. I feel…relieved. There was a time when a future with you was all I wanted, but our lives are inevitably heading down different paths and the longer we cling to each other, the further behind we fall. I just wish that there was a way I could have kept you in my life. But I’ve been holding on too long for selfish reasons. What I want more than anything is for you to be happy, even if that means I don’t get to keep you.
