After someone does nothing to keep you in their life, when it's always you calling, texting, making plans, you giving them space and time and anything they want --- that's not a relationship. That's you trying to keep someone in your life. Realizing what you thought was a deep, beautiful connection was really just a one way, dead end street is sad but also liberating when you can just let it go. Let it go out of your heart so something better can come along and replace where you kept that love alive. It wasn't love, it was hope misdirected.
It took me way to long to realize all this, to get it out of my head and heart and to realize it's okay to let go.
