To The Ex Who Taught Me How To Love With Depth, I'm Thankful

A letter to my ex or should I call it a letter to my first love. But I don’t know if I can call you that.

We met by chance; it’s a faded memory by now for we were just kids back then. And yet, if I really focus my mind, I know I will remember every little detail about you and about us.

However, today’s not the day for that. This is a letter for you, my ex, who is not an example of a mistake but an example of how we can change people for the better and then leave.

We need to understand that some people come into our life with a purpose and once it’s fulfilled, they have to leave because something better is planned for us.

We met after 8 long years and I got the closure I wanted. I don’t want us to be friends because there is too much history between us. I know deep down we still care for each other and would do anything for the other person’s happiness but no, we won’t.

Today we are two individuals in beautiful relationships and I don’t want you to come back. I know that this happened for the better and I am okay with it.

I know we would have been miserable with each other.

This is just to let you know that all the good memories are cherished within my heart and the bad ones have been buried deep within. You shaped my life in a great way. Yes, both good and bad experiences included.

It took me a long time to overcome the brief relationship we had but it was worth it and I won’t have it any other way.

I am happy that you are happy and wish you all the best in your life. I hope someday you will read this and know (I know you already know) that someone always keeps you in her prayers.

You will always hold a special place in my heart as I do in yours.

Thank you for making me realize how much I love my beloved now. I know I have the capacity to love with so much dedication and depth because of what we had.

What I felt for you is just a fraction of what I feel for him today.

But it is you who brought my heart to life for the first time and for that I am forever grateful. Thank you. Stay blessed.
