Dear Ex (asshole) Boyfriend-Writing the letter was exhilarating...for someone whose natural tendencies on the "Fight or Flight" spectrum err of the side of "run as fast as you fucking can," I found this exercise to be cathartic. There are so many things that have gone unsaid with some of the past characters in my life.
Please stop contacting me. You will never love me enough to deserve me, and I will never hate myself enough to let you prove that again.
- Mlle. HM
I was inspired. So I decided to write a few more "texts" to the former and future men of my life...
Dear Guy I Believed Was "The One"-
Even after we broke up, when you went through hell- I was there to listen. When you celebrated, I said congratulations. But recently, when I went through hell and needed support and friendship? Crickets.
It took me too long to realize this, but I finally did. You always made me feel totally alone- even when we were together.
Thanks for letting me finally let you go.
Sincerely, Mlle. HM
[Thanks Gotye for the lyrical inspiration there]
Dear Guy I Thought I Wanted To Be "The One"-And finally....with hope....
Thank you for moving on first - your choice in women quickly made me realize all the reasons you were never the one.
Cordially, Mlle. HM
Dear Future Husband-
Thank you for being worth the wait. And thanks for Naked Sundays ... I always wanted to do that. ;)
Always Yours, Mlle. HM
