Goodbye, my love.
Being a bitch isn’t cool anymore. Your “bitchface” might look pretty, it might make you seem mysterious, but it will sour your thoughts, turn your blood cold, and drive away the people who crave only your tender heart.
You might think this is “The Notebook,” but it’s not. That man that’s loved you selflessly for all this time isn’t coming back. Sure, he destroyed the cruel person you had become. And maybe now you’re different. Maybe now you remember what life was like before you turned cold and before you really knew him and before you became consumed by need for him. Maybe now you’re beginning to sprout anew your senses of joy and adventure and independence: the reasons he fell in love with you to begin with. But he isn’t coming back. Because you drove him away. You can see him on the street and walk past his house every day if you want to, but he isn’t coming back because this story is over. You blew it. Someone else will be by his side on adventures. Someone else will sing to him and stroke his hair in the way you were always too terrified to. Someone else won’t have any idea how to love him and what he needs and how to push his buttons in only the best of ways. Someone else will be clueless, and she won’t love him nearly as much as you did and do and will. You’ll want a new relationship, maybe still with him, but someone else will be your replacement. Because he isn’t afraid of other girls.
And he’ll still be in your dreams.
