War With The Past . . . An Open Letter

To You,

 We have mutual friends and even more in common, so this may get back to you, and I hope that it does.
I don’t know about your relationship with him, and I know what he’s told me. Oftentimes, when you hear about an issue, it is one-sided. I don’t know your side of this story, and I honestly don’t really care to. I need to say some things to you. Things that may be tough for the both of us, for me to say and for you to hear.

I want to say thank you

If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have met the most amazing person.  I wouldn’t have seen his demons and met him at Bowlers. I wouldn’t have started a journey with the person that I plan to spend the rest of my life with.

I wouldn’t have met him if it weren’t for you.

I know your name. I’ve seen you multiple times in public, right after I started dating your ex-boyfriend. I know of how you two broke up, from his side. 

I know one thing…There was trust issues.

He recently told me the story of how you two broke up. I think he may still be hurt, and I know that he had trust issues from you, from what he told me.

I will never know what really happened that day. The day it all ended, I wasn’t there.

I want to thank you for that day, when you let him go.

If you wouldn’t have let him go, he would probably still be with you. You two might be engaged, or even married by now. That didn’t happen though.

When you let him go, he went off the deep end a little. He lost himself. He lost the person he cared about. All of your actions, and his, led him to me.

When you let him go, he didn’t date for a while. He focused on his work and his family and his friends. Then, shall I say.. he messaged me.

Let me just say, that I have no hard feelings towards you. I could never hate you. I don’t even know you like that. If I ever did meet you, I would still thank you.

If it weren’t for you, he would’ve been a completely different person than he is now. You had a part in shaping his whole life and even himself, the person that I fell in love with.

If you wouldn’t have broken his heart, I wouldn’t have met or started dating the person that I couldn’t imagine my life without.

If you wouldn’t have hurt him, he would never be able to value a relationship.

So, thank you. Thank you for breaking his heart and hurting him. Thank you for letting him go because all of those things led him to me.

Thank you for walking out of his life and letting him walk out of yours. When you did this, you gave me the opportunity to find and love an amazing person.

I solemnly swear,  I will be the partner you failed to become for him. I will be the woman who will never make the same mistake that you did. I will never let him go.
