It’s our 10th anniversary today.
I thought we would be done with each other by now.
But still, we are locked in a contract together, trying to break free from each other.
This will probably be our last.
We have spent the last 6 months untangling ourselves.
We have finally disposed of our matrimonial home.
You have bought a new place with your partner.
I have moved back to stay with my parents, whom I will take care of in their old age.
I have created a new direction in life.
But I will still remember this day.
Every year on this day, I will take time to remember.
To remember us. To remember what we were. To remember what we could have been.
If only we were honest with ourselves from the start.
If only we didn’t lie to each other to protect each other.
I hope you are doing well.
I hope you will continue to do well.
You have your whole life ahead of you.
As do I.
