You never know how much you really love someone unless you grow apart or distance yourself from them.
I wanted to say goodbye to him in person and tell him how much I loved him and let my feelings and love for him go.
I replied, because I never told you this when I was supposed to and this is what I must say to let you go.
And know that letting go was the best decision you could make at the time, given what you had to work with.
In fact, this is why so many people stay in unhealthy or dead relationships.
Writing can make you express everything that needs to be said.
