We didn’t last forever. That’s something that I only came to grasp some time later. I’d be lying if I said that I was fully prepared for that moment.
But you know how they say: the show must go on. Some will laugh at me and tell me how we didn’t last long enough for me to feel the loss on such a deep level.
They don’t understand that you really meant something to me. You turned my world upside down and I will forever be grateful to you.
Sure, there were times when it wasn’t all rainbows and sunshine, but that’s also a part of life. You also showed me the tough times and a different side of life. Next to you, I came to realize that not everything is meant to be perfect and that life can sometimes surprise you in ways you couldn’t have even imagined.
To me, you were like a thorny rose that I was yet to pick. I couldn’t get to you that easily, but it’s what made this journey so special to me. Each thorn that cut through my skin will leave a small scar that tells its own story.
This taught me that you have to be persistent in life. No matter how many times you fail, you have to get back up and try harder. Life is easier when you have something to fight for.
Even though we didn’t last forever, some of your words will always live inside of me. You left such a big impact on my life that sometimes, I can still feel your presence.
At night, when the world goes quiet and all you can hear is souls whispering to each other, I lie awake thinking of what would my life look like if I hadn’t met you.
Honestly, just the thought of it makes me sad. Because even though we didn’t last forever, I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Sometimes, the lessons we learn are bigger than the experience – bigger than us. You showed me how to love, but most importantly, you taught me how to love myself.
I won’t say that my life changed the day I met you, no. Actually, it changed the moment you walked out of my life. I was completely on my own, but I had a new start.
Afterward, I gained a totally different perspective – a new outlook on life. I saw the world through a different pair of eyes than I used to before.
From that point on, I didn’t see the world as a black and a white thing anymore. Since then, I’ve been watching the world painted in all kinds of colors.
To be honest, I never thought it would end up like this. No, I’m not talking about how we didn’t last forever. I’m talking about how you affected my life in many ways, without even realizing it.
Sometimes, I’m not even sure you did it on purpose. You just appeared out of the blue, did your magic, and then disappeared as quietly as you arrived.
I like how this experience shaped me into the person I am today. Even though everything might seem perfectly fine in one moment, sometimes it’s just not meant to be.
You took everything with a grain of salt. Sure, you had your hopes up, but you never let your expectations get too high and get the best of you. So, you would rarely be disappointed.
Seeing this made me realize how I was setting myself up for failure. I’m thankful for teaching me to always look for common ground.
I’m forever grateful for showing me how there’s always a way out. But I also appreciate you telling me how sometimes you can’t escape your destiny.
You were simply meant to happen to me. And even though we didn’t last forever, I don’t regret one second of our time spent together.
I almost don’t want to say how you made me a stronger person than I was before, but then it’s one hundred percent true. You instilled this unexplainable hope and strength in me.
We didn’t last forever and that’s okay. Again, this is something that would be hard for me to conclude. But now, it all just makes perfect sense.
You made me the person I am today. No, you helped me grow up to be the person I was supposed to be. You didn’t stifle me, you didn’t ignore me.
You helped me climb out of my shell and accept all the love I was being given. In the same way, I learned how to express I love you without actually saying those three words out loud.
Finally, you made me realize how only small things matter in life. You made me see that the world could be mine, only if I wished and worked hard enough for it.
But what’s more important than anything, I learned to accept the truth, no matter how ugly it is or how much it hurts. After all, it’s better to deal with the bitter truth than wrap it in with sweet lies.
In the end, we’re always thankful for the most painful experiences. They teach us the true value of things and feelings. Moreover, they open up a whole other world for us.
I’d be lying if I said that it didn’t hurt when everything was over. Once you closed that door behind you, a big chapter of my life closed with it.
But this means that another one is just starting. The thing in life is that you have to give up and sacrifice a few droplets in order to receive a full ocean.
Maybe we didn’t last forever, but it probably wasn’t meant to last forever, and that’s okay. Thankfully, your words weren’t lost as an echo in the distance.
Your colors still haven’t faded away, even with all the rain trying to wash them away. We didn’t last forever, but you changed me for good. Thank you.
