Thoughts on a quote

Found this quote on Facebook today:

One day you’ll love me, the way I loved you. One day you’ll think of me, the way I thought of you. One day you’ll cry for me, the way I cried for you. One day you’ll want me, but I won’t want you.

This made me think of the boy I fell in love with years ago. These words couldn’t be more true. And even at the end of our relationship, no matter how much I appreciated the time we spent together, it just wasn’t meant to be. I just didn’t love him anymore. I only hung onto him because I didn’t want to let go and be lonely.

After I cut ties with him, although I do feel lonely sometimes, I feel free. Freed from years of heartache and unhealthy emotional attachments. I am no longer hung over a man who wasn’t meant for me.
