Regardless of what anyone else thinks,

It’s a LOT harder to walk away from someone that you love. It’s hard to make that decision at all. There comes a point in life where you have to worry about yourself, instead of other people. I realize that said person has every right to hate me. I gave her that permission. She has every right to be angry. 

But I did not throw you out like garbage, nor did I ever treat you that way. 

Walking away from her was one of the most difficult things I could have ever done. One of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make. But ultimately, I had to make that decision. Not just for me, but for her. Be angry, hate me, whatever. But don’t say I threw you out like garbage. You may feel that way, but that’s not the case at all. And the fact that you don’t know that says a lot.
