This weeks prompt phrase is:
Letting go is something I hadn’t really thought about. I had a long term relationship with a married man. I was divorced, but he wasn’t. We had 18 years together and I just assumed it would continue on forever as long as we were both alive. He was almost 70 which is 9 years older than me.
I should have seen it coming when he suddenly stopped calling me. He never told me a thing, just disappeared out of my life. Months later I tried emailing him and he did reply, but he just acted as if we were friends. I let it go. I wasn’t as happy with the relationship as I originally was. However he was my computer go-to guy and built my computer so I contacted him again. I asked what was going on and the problems I was having.
He agreed to fix my computer and things kind of drifted back to how they were. I thought maybe it would work out this time, but no, he gave me a few more months and then wiped all the good computer stuff out, gave me an old computer he swiped off someone’s desk and then emailed that his wife had found out.
I don’t believe that. It’s been 18 years with no whoopsie’s and secondly he accidentally told me that he was planning to move to DE. I am in NJ. Perhaps he already moved and that was the original break up. I don’t know. I no longer care. I am letting it go. Still occasionally on my mind, but for the most part I have let go of those feelings I thought I had for him.
Letting go is not easy, especially in a relationship so long term, but it has to be done. I have asked God for forgiveness and I don’t want him poking back into my life. I have finally let-g0 and I want to keep it that way.
