A Realization

6 years ago, I met this guy from a well-known family in the political scene. We dated a couple of times and then faded away from each other just like that.

Though we’ve reconnected over social media a few years after that, neither of us attempted to start a conversation. And then just recently, I received a series of “Hellos” and “How are you’s?” from him.

The above just once again proved why certain people just pass by your life to leave memories and teach you a lesson or two.

Thank you for the good memories from 6 years ago.

Thank you for asking me what happened to us even though there never was an us to begin with (emphasis on never because it was that).

Thank you for thinking that we should have worked it out, though, again, there was never an us (to borrow a line from a movie, which I literally told him).

Thank you for making me feel great about the reason why it didn’t work out between us.

Thank you for showing me that everything that I have right now, though it may not the best, I’m really better with, without you.


A Sincere Random Thought

I was disappointed but you know what made it worth the disappointment? It was you acknowledging and apologizing for it. It was one of the sweetest things you did for me. You deserve a big hug from me next time 🤗
