Have you ever loved someone so much and thought it'd be forever? I did too but after a few years passed I realized that sometimes the heartbreak is better off than the forever.

S/O to my first love, my first date, and my first heartbreak. You taught be several life lessons, like to put myself first, be independant, and that sometimes you can do everything for someone and it still not be enough. I still wouldn’t take back a single day of it because you taught me how to love myself, and taught me to not put up with people’s bs.

I remember first meeting you, I got on the bus and sat near the back, trying to be secluded because it was a new environment, a new school, and little did I know,.. A whole new chapter in my life. We stopped at a few more houses then you got on the bus. We looked at each other and I couldn’t help but smile. You were so cute, so perfect, so intriguing. A day or so passed and you finally gave me your number. I was so happy, silly silly me. I texted you, I didn’t know what to say or even how to say it. I didn’t want to seem like a childish little girl, with butterflies in my stomach, I just simply said hey. A few weeks passed and we were on the phone every night for hours among hours, I loved every minute of it. You finally asked me to be your girlfriend and I said yes with no hesitation. I was the happiest girl in the world.

Months had passed, we shared many memories, some great and some not so great, but you were mine and that made me so happy. We talked about the future, talked about us, talked about everything, and I pictured you by my side the whole time. But of course we were young and dumb and didn’t know that everything would come crashing down. We were doing so great, I loved being wrapped up in your arms, I loved your family, I loved the play fighting, I loved the constant phone calls, I loved everything about us. You didn’t realize how amazing you are and i’m so glad you let me in, and let me love you like you deserved. There were so many great memories that they made the bad ones seem so simple. Sometimes I wonder how we got so lost, so torn apart. Why couldn’t we have been as strong as we were in the beginning. We had our breakups and makeups but I thought we’d be together for longer than we were but in life there’s many bumps, and sometimes they are bigger than we can handle, it’s life though right?

We did everything together and was always with each other rather it was hanging out with your friends, spending time with your family, cuddling on your couch, and just living in the moment. In all honesty I wouldn’t trade those moments or even the bad ones for anything in this world. You made me realize love is real and can be scary at times, and I couldn’t thank you enough for everything you taught me, and all the moments you spent with me. It’s crazy to think that at one point in time you were my everything and our love was so real and so so strong, and now we don’t even talk. You have a baby now and have a completely different life and i’m happy for you, honestly. I always knew you’d be a great dad, it just sucks that it’s with a different girl, a different family, and a different life. At the time of our relationship who knew it’d be this way but this is life, and things happen rather you want them too or not.

When you think you're finally happy life throws curve balls and I guess we just weren’t strong enough to withstand it. But it’s okay, really it is because if it wasn’t for our break up, I wouldn’t have met my incredible boyfriend and I wouldn’t have learned to love myself. So thank you, thank you for all the good and bad times, thank you for all the smiles and the tears. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it wasn’t for you and the heartbreak that came along with it. So to my ex, my first love, my first heartbreak, thank you



Sincerely, You’re ex.
