To start this off, I want you to know this isn't easy for me. I love you to death and would do anything for you. Deep down I know that will never change.
You have the most special place in my heart, and you always will. But even though I love you, it's time for me to leave. I just can't stay here any longer.
I need to leave to rediscover myself.
I need to relearn who I am and what my heart wants. I need to remember to love myself and feed my soul every single day that goes by.
I've been spending so much time trying to help you, love you, and help you figure yourself out that I realized — I need to do those things for myself. I forgot that I need to worry about me and love myself too.
It feels like it's been forever since I really felt in touch with who I am. Every day that goes by, I feel like my soul clock is ticking. Every day that goes by, is another day I could spend following the truest desires of my heart.
Don't get it wrong— I truly do love you.
I love loving you. I'm not angry or bitter towards you, I just need some time for me. Leaving you is the last thing I want to do, but it's what I have to do.
Let's face it— we're both a little broken. Our relationship is a little broken right now. We don't know where we're going or what the future will bring us as a couple or as individuals.
Maybe we both need to find ourselves.
We both need this time to find ourselves so that maybe we can come back and love each other better. We still have our whole life to try things over, and fix what's been broken between us. There's always time.
I don't know how long I'll be, I don't know how long it'll take. But once I have it figured out, you're the one I'll come back to right away. No matter how much we fight or argue, you will always be my love. Trust me, I mean this with my whole heart.
All I ask that you wait for me.
