The Tragedy of Love

I thought her post hit the nail on the head for what every OW feels at some point.  I told her I could have written these exact words.

Choosing Life

The biggest tragedy of love has to be when one person loves and the other doesn’t.  The feeling that you can’t see your future without the object of your affection somehow in your life, yet somehow you feel like it is much easier for them.

For so long I have lived with my head in the sand.  Not wanting to see the reality. And the reality is that, yes, I am a good friend of his, and he values me in his life, he must obviously have some feelings for me, but I am his ‘option’.  It ‘feels’ as though if I am not around he is still 100% fine.   This affair costs me so much internally, and in other areas of my life  – I am not prepared to be an ‘option’.  I don’t want to be an ‘option’.  Because an ‘option’ equates to being used.  I’m in love…

I do think my MM and I shared a great love, but he still was willing to keep me on the side, so it couldn’t have been that great, right? I just ended my relationship with him on Monday, and man it hurts. But I’m getting through. 🙂 Thanks for reading and commenting.
