How I Lost The Love Of My Life To Obsessiveness: I'm Sorry

Anonymous Anonymous in Life Is Tough on 22 June, 2017

Dear Bukipa,

I’m sorry we broke up. It was my fault.

You’ve made me feel like no one has and I know no one will. I’ve dated before you and I am seeing someone now, but I know it’s never going to be the way you loved me.

When you came to Bangalore, we were just good friends. You were struggling with your career and I helped you in every way I could. I fell for you, worse than I should have, but luckily, you loved me equally.

But this love of mine turned selfish and I was obsessed with you. I didn’t give you your personal space, because I thought you needed me throughout that time. I’m really sorry. 

We fought a lot because of this, I can see that now. You breaking up with me: I was the reason.

You asked to be friends with me, you said you just needed some time off, but you loved me. I tried to be your friend, I thought I could win you over, but all I did was suffocate you more. I only wanted to be your girlfriend and overlooked the fact that you just needed your friend again.

Finally, you gave up on me and fell in love again. I know you’re happy now. I’m still stuck somewhere, wondering if you’re going to come back. But you moved on, without telling me.

I thought you had cheated on me, but now that I think of it, it was I who pushed you into the arms of another. I lost you and this will be the biggest regret in my life.

Your birthday is coming, 24th June, I hope that you have an amazing time in Netherlands and a great life ahead, happy birthday.

I will always love you.

Always yours,
