A Letter to The Girl He Left

To the girl he loved, and left

I don’t even know you. I’m not sure I want to get to know you either. What I know is the fact that you loved him so much. And even if you had doubt, I’m sure that he loved you too those times.

I’m so sorry that you loved him that much. Thank you for being there when everything was rough for him. I know he could get through those times because you were there, supporting him. I bet he loved you, you know. Eventhough it’s true that sometimes love is not enough, at least for you two.

I’m so sorry that you’ve been hurt. I’m so sorry that you’ve invested on a wrong person. I’m so sorry that you didn’t find your happiness through him. I’m so sorry that he can’t be your future.

I don’t know you, but I’m so sorry for your misery. I wish you are happy, wherever you are right now. I wish you will find the right person along the way. I wish you will find better things in your life.

Maybe he needed to learn the wrong kind of love first before finally settling on the right one because he did love you. You were his first love and I would be a liar if I said I wasn’t jealous of that. You have so much of him that I will never have but at the same time I’m grateful for that. I’m grateful that you loved him so much. I’m grateful that you made him smile on his darkest days and taught him how to pick out the perfect polo. I’m thankful that you took him on a journey I’m not sure I could have. Sometimes, I wish you both had never met so that this mess never existed but in the end I realized that things happen for a reason. For all I know, him and I would never have met if you hadn’t entered his life.

Lastly, I want you to know I’m sorry for what happened between the two of you. You are genuinely a lovely person who didn’t deserve the kind of pain him leaving you caused. I’m sorry that you had to lose your first love but I’m not sorry that he did leave you. In the end, it was the right thing to do and you both knew it. All I hope for now is that one day you’re able to find someone who will be able to be everything that your first love could never be for you. I hope one day you find happiness again in the smile of someone who makes your heart beat faster than it ever has. You deserve that more than anyone I know.”
