G is for Griff (again…)

Hi Griff,

Thank you for your texts. I have never for a second doubted that you loved me and appreciated me; I know that you worked at our relationship every single day that we were together. I’ve never doubted that you loved me still the day we broke up. There is a part of me that will always love you for that amazing gift.

It’s time now, though, for you to let me go. I want to move forward in my life, but the texts and phone calls and the heartfelt conversations are making it really hard for me to do so.

I want you to be able to move on too. You can’t develop a truly intimate relationship with someone else when we’re still this emotionally connected.

You were such a gift to me. Our time together was a wonderful and unforgettable season in my life.  And I really hope that we can find our way to being long-term friends. I would hate to lose contact with someone who played such an important role in my life. But I definitely need some “friend” boundaries with you at this point.

I know, I know. I’m being way too black and white here, and this all just proves that you are way less black and white and way more flexible than I gave you credit for…  I’m okay with being wrong this time.

But let’s try a bit of black and white friendship stuff and see if we can make it work.

Hope you got some good top-down sunshine in that little red convertible this weekend!
