A Letter To A Lost Love
Start writing a post

To Whom It May Concern:

I want to start out by saying I’m saddened and sorry. This place of hurt and resentment we now find ourselves in now seems so distant from the place of warmth and joy we started with. I look back and think about how many things could have been done differently. But I want to tell you that the past six months I’ve spent with you was one the most exciting periods of my recent life.

Those six months have taught me a lot about you and myself. I remember when we first started spending time with each other, and we would spend hours together and lose track of time. Whatever the activity, I found myself completely enveloped in every second. Your vast knowledge and passion for things like Pokemon, comic book heroes, and music were qualities that I found to be very admirable. I was thrown back by you, but in the very same way drawn to you.

God, how I really wish things weren’t the way they are now. I never wanted to change you or make you something different than what you were. I’m sorry for wanting something that you were just incapable of giving at this point in time.

But I am not bitter. I know that I wasn’t always in the right, and I know that I had done wrong. But, I truly cared for you and admired you deeply. I love you, and you’ll always remain very special to me. I don’t hold any hard feelings against you. No resentment and no judgment. Loving you wasn’t easy, but I still did it because I saw promise. I wanted to be, for you, what you were to me. Which was a comfortable, fun, and easy place for me to come to and find peace and joy. I know there’s a very good possibility that we may never be friends the way we were before, which depresses me because you really are an incredible person.

I will miss your friendship more than you’ll know. I will see you every day and think to myself how I wish we could go and have a six hour conversation at KD’s, or a four hour conversation in the parking lot of a Dairy Queen, a day spent riding around Sulphur eating Mexican food, getting ice cream, and just having childlike fun.

I’m going to miss the nervous feeling I got from bringing you flowers for your birthday, or giving you a vinyl copy of your favorite Nirvana album. Walking around an empty fairground sharing a slice of pizza and a lemonade, waiting on the sunset that never showed up. Getting up in the middle of a movie to go and find your family dog at night.

I know I’m going to be okay, and I know that I will move forward with genuine hope for the best of both of us. If we find ourselves swimming in the same waters as we did when we first began getting to know each other, I will smile at you with joy and appreciation.

So goodbye, and I’ll be seeing you.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
