Dear the old me….

I want to start off by saying I love you and I always will….

The pain of losing you isn’t ever lost on me….

I know it will hurt for a long time….

A part of me is dying and it feels devastating….

So much becomes lost in translation….

I didn’t…I couldn’t let go of you….

You’re all I’ve ever known and it was hard….

It was hard to finally realize that you were the one who was hurting me….

No one can change what they did to you….

The pain may always be there in a way….

But somewhere along the way…

The self destructive choices felt familiar….safe even….

And the tears were the ones I clung to….

I became used to being broken….

I was afraid to change….

Afraid of everything that would ultimately mean….

But I’m not afraid anymore….

Because clinging onto the pain and the past….

There’s no way to live….

The only way is to love and let go….

Completely….

I’m grateful for you….

You were there through the worst of my nightmares and dreams….

But it’s time to choose another kind of life….

One that is loving and kind….

And I hope you know you are the reason I survived the night….

Now it’s time to embrace the day….

Me and you….

Will go our separate ways….
