If we let go of things, our life is going to change.
I checked my inbox yesterday and got myself another email from Ted. Since he moved away, we’ve been sending each other forwarded messages. But the email I got this time was rather serious. He didn’t start out his greeting with the typical “what’s up sugar?” or “how’s my darling splenda?” (the sweetener, corny huh?) So I had this funny feeling that his email was totally humorless.
True enough, there was nothing laughable about his email. There were no jokes or funny pictures. Ted said that he met someone special and was about to get into a relationship. And that, all he’s waiting for is my blessing. I was like, what blessing? What is my involvement in this? And so I asked Mom for some advice, she said to me — when he said blessing, what he means by that is forgiveness. It was then that I remembered how Ted said sorry to me, quite a few times before he left. Only to raise my voice and sending him away. Now, I know exactly what he means.
After my conversation with my mother, I decided to email him back. Quite obviously, we’ve both moved on. I’m quite happy the way I am now. Surely, Ted deserves the same. And now that love is standing right before him, who am I to knock off his chances? Ted and I were not lucky to be lifetime lovers, and we may have ended our relationship on a bad note, but that is all in the past. What matters now, is that we’re happy and life long friends…
Ted, if ever you’re reading this. I wish you happiness, I give you peace, and may you’re love for this new special someone last a lifetime or even more. With love and sincerity, I say — Good luck, my friend!
