Even if both of you love each other so much, and even when letting go is a very painful thing to do, there will come a time when you need to let go in order for each of you to grow in your own individual lives. It doesn’t mean that you don’t love each other anymore; it just means that you need to be apart so that better things can have room in your life. This line of thinking of loving and letting go was hard for me to accept at first. But when I saw my ex again, I realized that indeed, the decision of letting each other go had helped us become the people that we are now. I’m living my dream and so is he. Letting each other go had done more good for us than we ever initially imagined.
In the end, we hugged each other; it was a long hug, and I was able to feel a lot of whatever it was that he was feeling at that time from that simple hug. A part of me kind of missed him, but a part of me also affirmed my decision way back in the past of us letting each other go. After that long hug, we said our goodbyes. I just watched while his car sped away, wishing happiness for both of us wherever our own paths may lead us. After a while, I took the opposite direction.
