Thus begins a new chapter. I knew what I had to do. It was time. I walked up to him and, after a lengthy conversation about our forever love, told him goodbye. I had been needing to do this for a while. No more safety net. It’s time for me to fly on my own and trust myself to stand up and, if I must fall, fall alone. It’s time for me to rely on myself to make the right decisions. I choose to move on. I choose to be happy. I wish the same for him. Until our paths cross again, goodbye.
