This is very hard for me. I can’t believe I’m doing this. Just know that it’s not you, it’s me. I can’t continue on like this. This relationship we’ve had has been hard, an emotional roller coaster ride. I love you. I really do. But, in the end, I don’t think this will work for either one of us. I cannot allow myself to fall to fall under your spell and in to your arms week after week. You are like a like drug and I need to wean myself away from you. Cold turkey will not do – the very fiber of my being cannot handle an immediate separation like that.
I’ll always remember the good times we had. How I could go to you at anytime, your arms open wide, welcoming me . There was no judgment, no prejudice. No matter how I looked, or what my intentions, you accepted me for who I was. You still do. But, unfortunately, I must move on. I must find a way to live my life without you there every step of the way. I need to know that I can make it in this world without you as my vice.
Ending a relationship is always tough. But, as they say, what doesn’t break you makes you stronger. I will never forget you. You’ll always have a place in my heart. I hope we can still be friends. I’m so sorry.
So, I say to you, Target, the only retail store that has captured my soul, good-bye. I’d still like to keep in touch with you. Perhaps a get together every other weekend, and then every month. This should ease the pain for us both, slowly. My heart is sinking even as I write this. Please don’t ever forget me.
