We fell apart during the worst part of my life. I was drinking and smoking (A LOT) to be happy, and was very depressed. I treated you like crap because I lacked the insight and confidence to just break it off and walk away. When you called it quits, it put my problems in perspective and I finally got the help I needed. I'm a better person now, and you're a big part of why that is.
I hope you're doing well. I think of you often, and hope that you've found a guy who treats you right - something I could never do with any consistency. You're great. Maybe someday I'll grow the balls to call you and tell you all of this.
