A Message To My Boyfriend’s Ex

Hi, I’m the new girl and I have a few things to say to you. Yes, I know you’ve seen the pictures of us on Facebook. I know you messaged him before Christmas with another attempt to manipulate him into coming to your aid once again. I know you wanted to get a rise out of him and see if those feelings were still there. I know you’re starting to see that it’s different with me. I know you now see that he’s not taking the chance of messing things up with me.

When you ask yourself over and over why he stopped replying and why he asked you to respect our relationship part of you is crying on the inside. I know it’s hard to watch what used to be slip so far away. I’m happy with him and he’s happy with me.

I know how it feels to be in your shoes. I know what it’s like to see the guy you love move on with someone else. This is just simply a part of life. I am not controlling him, he is with me by choice, he chooses me. I am not your enemy; I’m simply a girl who happens to fit a little bit better with your ex at this point in life.

When he holds me I feel safe for the first time in a long time. When I cry he promises I’m all he wants and makes me feel so safe. He makes me laugh without trying and when I glance over at him while he’s standing on the other side of the room I picture our future together. In a way, I never have before. I really do love him, and  I’m just a girl in love—like you were and like you will be.

If you still love him, like you say you do, then you need to let him go and move on. Allow him to be happy —because we were both broken and together we found a way to mend each other. Don’t think he’s forgotten all about you. He is the man he is today partly because of you. I thank you and I respect you.

One day, you will be happy again — trust me. You won’t even notice that some other guy is already making you smile, making every morning worth waking up for. I know, I know because I was once in your shoes. I also cried a bucket of tears when I was in the same position as you are. It was hard, really hard. Give yourself a chance to trust your feelings once again. don’t be scared. Say hello to your future love, better, even better.
