Someone once told me that when something (or someone) from your past re-surfaces, that is because you need to bring closure to that situation.
Well, remember when I told you guys I was taking a break from relationships? I still am. However, the guys from my past did NOT get that memo. They have been popping back up in my life left and right. I tell you no lie, just in this past week FOUR guys have popped up!
The problem is not the fact that they reappeared, but it is the fact that they reappear expecting things to be the same. Uh….no. The history between them and I is exactly that: history. I have changed tremendously over the past few years, and I am a completely different person since leaving them in my past.
I realized it is time for me to put closure to those situations. So, I sat down and wrote each of them a letter saying goodbye. In all of the letters I recalled everything that had transpired and how it has changed my life. That is when I realized why they had been popping up. God was showing me how each of them has helped shape me into the person I am today. Although, I would never go back to talking to any of them, I must admit that if it had not been for me meeting them, certain blessings would have never came my way.
I am not mailing off any of these letters, but the funny thing is that as soon as I wrote them none of the guys tried to reach out to me anymore. It was just something I had to deal with and recognize so that I can move forward and be the best woman I can be in my next relationship. (Whenever that is going to happen…)
…there is one guy from my past I choose not to let go of just yet.
