It's all good

It took me a while. I'm really stubborn. Persistent. Tenacious. Filled with faith, some say. Well, to a point. I finally accept that when you say you're done, that it's just that. Some people might get all indignant. Heck, the old me would have. But, no, I can't. I put you on a crazy roller-coaster without sufficient explanation and am truly sorry that it left you spent, hurt, and angry. I could try to fill you in on the reasons and the background and you'd never believe me. What really sticks through it all is how you said you've never been happier. Above all, that's what I wanted for you, if you can believe that. And somewhere I took away the thing I liked seeing you have: happiness. I'm not closing the door on anything. I'm not pursuing anything either. I'm not leaving, and not waiting around. I'm letting you live your life on your terms, which you're doing anyway. If saying goodbye is what adds to that happiness, then...well, I don't know what does, actually, but it's a logical leap; I just hear silence and interpret that as your final and happily enduring message, knowing that you are happy.

That's what love should be about

It's not about possessing someone. It's about wanting them to be happy.

I read this and think "HAPPY" how can this asshole be happy. He left behind a woman who could reason a result and take her end of it hold it to the sky saying this piece is my fault. I almost cry just typing that. Why? well it's not simple, but truth like that is so very fucking rare these days, I got to wonder if this guy fell hit his head and is now a arrogant, self serving piece of shit, because this kind of woman would not attract an asshole misogynistic prick as a bf . I mean sure people are different in how long a miss understanding/fight in a relationship last. Still man if I was faced with this truthful heart, I would give the same in return while asking her to travel with me, lets be a team, to a better means. God I hope you reach out, not here and speak this face to face. Otherwise it's just a very great idea that never panned out. Just saying right, good luck.

Carling Avenue. Thanks for that. Who knew there was such serenity to be found at the end of a long beaten road?

You are a gem. xoxo Such kind and supportive words. I hope you are swimming in love with words like that; a gal would be stupid to pass you up.

Just a heads up, though: I'm not a woman. I hope that doesn't change things.

Sincerely, OP.

I agree with what you're saying for the most part, except for the part when you say that a woman like that wouldn't attract an asshole misogynistic prick as a bf. That happens ALL the time. In fact, it's exactly that type of woman that those types go for, because they want to feel more powerful than her. If they can get a woman like that to fall for them, it makes them feel like a god. If the Op was really as sorry as he claims, and if he's really learned from his awful behaviour, he should prove it by saying it to her directly. Whether or not it results in her reconsidering her opinion of him or wanting to get back together, if he's sincere then he should be mature and brave enough to reach out and say it.
