Saying goodbye is never the hardest part. It is everything that comes after. It is getting up in the morning and reaching across the sheets to find the other side of the bed empty. It is ordering iced coffee out of habit and pouring the leftovers down the sink.
There was a time when I thought the way you made me feel was healthy. You convinced me my purpose in life would fade to nothing if I didn’t have you. The worst part? I believed you. You found me at my lowest so you could lift me up and put me on top of the world.
How was my 2017? It was all about losing some and gaining some. I decided to let go of the people who made me feel like I’m hard to love. It was all about loving the sound of my footsteps walking away from the things that I know is not for me.
