Day 7: The Ex


Let me first say, this will be one of the shorter letters. I’m not one to dwell on the past. It is what it is, and that’s that. If I could skip this day I would, only because I don’t even feel like wasting my time or energy with this letter, but I agreed to this challenge so I’m going to follow the rules…oh yeah and it’s not “Derwin” but anyhoo here goes:

Dear Ex

Life is so crazy. Never in a million years did I think we’d ever be the point where we can’t even speak. I know that you’re going through and have gone through a lot, but at the same time, you can’t let that affect how you treat people. I’ll be the first to admit, when we came back into each others lives things were crazy…we went from simply working together to going out on dates and before either of us knew it we were talking on the phone or texting daily. For a brief moment, it felt like we were back in high school. Anyhoo, once we had the talk, and realized that neither of us wanted to backtrack into a relationship, and wanted no more than friendship, things went south. I felt like I couldn’t even joke about something or have a bad day without you feeling like I was trying to be with you. I mean don’t get me wrong, you’re an attractive guy, but I was cool with just being a friend…Nothing more.

I won’t waste time going into details, but what you did was wrong and all I ever asked you for was an apology, (oh and my car charger LOL)…Two words “I’m sorry” “My bad” “I apologize” and I’m sure you know what incident I’m referring to. Instead of doing what a normal “friend” would have done and accept responsibility for your actions, you felt the need to comment on a status I put on Facebook and say I was “exploiting my feelings on the net”.  The funny thing is when I put “is in shock…like seriously… wow… speechless…SMH” as my status, I wasn’t even talking about you or the situation. But you wouldn’t know that. Guess it’s true what they say….a hit dog will holler. (No, I am not calling you a dog)  I did however say something indirectly about the situation on Twitter, but my page is private and you don’t have Twitter soooo……

But enough about the drama that got us to this point… The things I did for you, I did because I wanted to, and aside from an apology, I never asked for anything back. I would just say be careful whom you use when you’re down, because even once you get back on your feet, there’s always that possibility that you’ll fall again. Don’t let what one woman did cause you to change the person you are…or should I say, were. Yes, she may have hurt you, but not all women will. God has a purpose and a plan for your life and although you may not understand the twists and turns, trials and tribulations, rest assure HE’S got it. Proverbs 3:5, 6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

I sincerely wish you all the best
