I never thought I would be writing you this letter. There was a time when I thought our love would stand the test of time and nothing could come between us. Unfortunately, the years have chipped away at our once perfect relationship and as what you’ve said, there is nothing left for you to hold on to. The way things are now, we are no longer a positive influence in each other’s life. We just make each other miserable instead of happy, and make life harder rather than easier. You said It’s time to call it quits and go our separate ways.
I want you to know that I am not blaming you. I think I have done everything I could and pursued every option available to try to keep this relationship together, but nothing has helped. It should be clear to me by now that we are fighting a losing battle. After you’ve broken up with me, the simplest problem or disagreement always gets blown up out of proportion and meaningful communication is no longer possible. The tension in our apartment is so thick you could cut it with a knife.
How many times have we said we have had enough and never wanted to see each other again, only to kiss and make up, then try again? This time you’re not coming back. I have moved in with an old friend until I can make other arrangements. I have left some of my personal things. Inevitably, there will be things that mean so much to both of us that we will have to sit down together and decide who gets what.
I believe that parting now is the best thing for both us. We still have our careers we can concentrate on. No solution will please everyone or solve all our problems. We still have happy memories from the past; we need to concentrate on making the present as happy as possible and try to keep a positive outlook on the future. I think a year from now we will both be doing so much better that we’ll probably wonder why we hadn’t ended the relationship sooner.
I want you to know I wish you all the best. You have a lot of great qualities that will serve you well in the future. Let’s try to remember the good times, let go of our present miseries, and hope I’ll have the common sense to move on.
