Wasn’t the beginning just like a fairy tale? We met and it seem like “love at first sight,” to me. I don’t know if that is how you felt, too, because you never did say. There were a lot of things you didn’t tell me. If only you were a better communicator; I think we may have worked things out. Yet, you were always one of so few words. When I would ask you questions, you would just stare at me with your big, brown eyes and mumble something that sounded like, “Harruruuru.”
In the beginning, we had some disagreements. I would want to go one way, and you would want to either go the other or not go at all. How is that for building the foundation of a good relationship? We did work through those early problems, though, and we were both happy with the status quo.
Then, I started to ask for a little more out of the relationship. At first, you went along with it, and then things got really sour, and you hurt me, MerryLegs, you hurt me a lot.
It is hard to recover from something like that. I lost my trust in you. Trust, once lost, is hard to regain. Ironically, you seemed to trust me more. We tried to get outside help with our relationship, and wasn’t that a disaster? You didn’t want someone to help bring us back together, and you stated it in no uncertain terms. That was when I realized our relationship was over. All trust was gone.
We stayed together a little while longer, but I could see that it would never work. I confess, I was afraid of you hurting me, again. My dreams of spending my upcoming retirement with you just dissolved into thin air. There was going to be no riding off into the sunset for us.
Breaking up is never easy, but it is often the best thing for everyone involved. Not all relationships will work. That’s just how life is. We take our chances and hope for the best. This time, it didn’t work. That doesn’t mean it won’t work for you in the future. You just need to find the right person.
So as you travel down this road of life, I hope that you will remember the good times we spent together and the things that I taught you. You taught me a few things, too. I will remember you fondly, and I hope for all the best for you in your future.
Best wishes, MerryLegs,
