I recently found out that my ex, the guy that I have loved for the past 2 and a half years, has started seeing someone else. Although our relationship has been over for more than 6 months, I can't help feeling a little hurt. I mean, he hasn't gone on the rebound or tried to get me back - no, he has moved on. Even after all the promises, and the heart breaking goodbye. There is nothing.
But even though a part of me feels this way, I know, that it was time for our relationship to have ended, Perhaps even months before. I only wish that he would have had the guts to have said what he really wanted and that I wasn't it. I wish that I had listened to my heart, when it had told me that I wanted more from our relationship, instead of pretending that everything was OK.
I know better that to go back to my past, but I also know better than to bury these feelings. So, yes - I acknowledge the hurt, and I forgive myself for feeling this way. But most of all, I forgive him, and wish him all the happiness that the world has to offer.
I strongly believe in this quote,
"When people walk away from you, let them go, your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you. And it doesn't mean that they are bad people, it just means that their part in YOUR story is over. "
It may have taken some time for me to realise this, but the fact of the matter remains, life is full of difficulties. All that matters is what you learn from each situation.
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before finding the right one, so that when we finally find the right one, we will know how to be grateful.
