I was reading posts on Thought Catalogue at 12 am (midnight) and then something came up on my mind while reading these “thoughtful” posts (get it haHAA ok I’m not funny).

I use to write these journals or little letters to my boyfriend at the time but I never sent them because I was afraid that if I sent it to him, I would hurt him (which I didn’t want to do) so I kept them to myself.

But then I thought, “maybe I should actually write it down on my blog” and here it is…

Btw, I did not edit these letters, they’re all originally written like this (on paper but I copied it from my journal to my computer).

So grab your mug of coffee or tea and let’s get right into it!

34-a letter to my ex boyfriend that was never sent

 24 January 2017

“I’m sorry. I needed time. Time to focus on my feelings towards something I wanted to achieve in life. Time to heal the pain I’ve cause both of us. Time to get my feelings over you. You may not see this or you might.

Whatever the excuses are, are not good enough to convince how I actually feel about you. I’m not writing this to get your attention. I’m not writing just so I can convince for you to come back with me. I’m writing this so I can look back and be happy that I’ve made the right choice.

You see, we may have had happy times and sad times, but all of that is in the past.

I loved you. I really do. All I wanted for you is to be happy and find the person who makes you happy for who you are. Someone who loves herself and you equally. Someone to share anything with you. Someone who you can experience intimacy with.

I tried my best. I tried everything I could to heal our relationship. It just wasn’t working. I’m sorry. Someday, you’ll find your real soulmate. I promise you.”

“This is my last letter to you before I let you go and forget you entirely. I loved you.

You were the best boyfriend that I’ve ever had. I wish it didn’t turn out this way. I would only wish we had never fallen in love. We could have just stayed friends.

I know how much important you were to me. But here we are. Last I’ve lost you. The most important guy in my life isn’t by my side anymore.

I wish you best luck in the future. Maybe someday, we could meet again.”
