“What’s something you’ve moved on from that once meant the world to you?”
One of my best friends.
Don’t know if he loved me as much as I loved him.
I would have done anything for that person.
I threw a kid in the ditch, when we were in middle school, when this kid called my friend a “faggot”. (He didn’t know I did that…I didn’t want it to hurt him).
I stood up against my abusive step father for the first time because of him.
I was his “ride or die” girl. I would have done anything and everything for him.
We were so similar in many ways and we mirrored each other in certain ways…except, I considered him the better half of my reflection.
He has always meant the world to me. That will never change. I just live differently, now. I have gone on to marry someone else and have a family with that person. I don’t like the situation with my husband always upset, but I do love him. Wish it wasn’t so complicated…
Sometimes, I’ll look back, and think and wish how things could have been different. But if it were, I would have never had my beautiful children. I love my children. They are my world, now.
My old friend is married now, like me, with a beautiful family. He seems happy and I am so happy for him.
We’ve moved on and it’s over. He will always have a special place in my heart…and I don’t want to get in the way of his happiness.
Sometimes you love someone so much, you just have to let them go.
