Mr. Almost, You Will Really Be My Mr.

Mr. Almost, You Will Really Be My Mr.

It’s not that letting you go is easy. It’s because I’ve been hit too many times in the past. You didn’t fight for me because I self-sabotaged. As a result, I walked away. You made me feel special in a way that no one else has. You called me things I’d never heard before, like “beautiful” instead of “hot.” I can tell when a man cares for me and needs me, and you showed it. You didn’t really notice my flaws. You saw me and responded in the way that everyone does when they see someone they care for.

I realize this isn’t a fairytale.

I don’t think it’s a bad thing if you have ambitions and hopes. I want you to be successful and achieve all of your goals. But I’m not going to fib and say it won’t be painful if you meet anyone new. I know it’s a bit conceited of me to wish I could persuade you to join me in reaching for the stars. I’m sure you’ll meet someone with whom you want to learn someday. You’ll meet someone to share your dreams with one day.

Thank you for demonstrating that I am entitled to be considered as I want.

Thank you for demonstrating that I am entitled to be considered as I want. Thank you for providing me with a valuable experience. I wanted to be reminded that I am worthy of love and happiness. I deserve to be cared for, considering my insecurities and baggage. And though I was nervous and worried, I let down my guard and was myself with you. I suppose it wasn’t enough. I realize you didn’t mean it when you said I was fine. And you wouldn’t like to imagine me with someone else if I were perfect. Consider what you’d be like if you didn’t have me.

I’m sure your motives were good.

However, we were both injured in the process.

Mr. Almost will always be my Mr.

 Don’t let your number ever determine your worth in life. Never feel ashamed or the need to make it higher or lower. Be who you are and own it. Realize people change. Hangout with your old high school friends and find it weird ordering a glass of wine legally. Meet up with your college roommates and debate grabbing beer instead of taking shots. But, also realize people aren’t their past mistakes. We all eventually grow up and change.It’s definitely acceptable to fall asleep at 930 pm on a Friday night.Learn to stand up for yourself at work. If you don’t agree with someone else’s viewpoint, learn to bring up your own ideas. Don’t be afraid to challenge others, but also learn the right and professional way to do it.Drunk texting is almost always a bad idea. But, sometimes it’ll be the exact mistake you need.
