He loved you. He really, really loved you. He would have done absolutely anything to make you happy…Even drift away from his best friends. Just so you didn’t have to feel like you came second.
Do you even realize what you’re letting go of?
In my eyes, you were never good enough for him. You were pulling him down, day by day. I watched as his always cheerful self was no longer happy.
When I would hang out with him, there was always some worry lingering on his mind. He was constantly checking his phone like he was waiting for you to tell him he did something wrong.
Tell me: what was he doing wrong?
I know you’ve known him well for a long time. I know him well, too. He’s one of the best people I’ve met. I can’t imagine him being any less of a boyfriend than he is a best friend.
I tried so hard to like you.
I wanted to get along with you just to make him happy. You didn’t allow that. You wanted him to pick between us, and I let him pick you. But he was still my best friend the whole time, you couldn’t change that.
Was that the problem? That you couldn’t control your insecurities leading to jealousy?
I don’t know why you were so against allowing him to have friends of his own. You were so desperate to keep him contained. I don’t know why you couldn’t trust him.
If you saw him the way I do maybe you would get it. The way he looked at you was so incredible, he admired everything about you.
Why did you hold him back for so long just to break him? Was that your intention the whole time?
Whatever changed your mind about what you had with him, I can’t justify it. I don’t know if I ever can. As much as I didn’t like you, he made up for it with how much he loved you. All I wanted was for him to be happy, and in the end, you made him happy.
Now I’m left to pick up the pieces of the heart you broke, and I’ll do it happily.
He’s going to get himself together and turn back into the boy I know him to be. He will be witty and full of life. You’ll see him turn back into the boy you fell in love with. You’ll miss him, it’ll be impossible for you not to.
And when you want him back, I’ll advise him against it.
Love is blind, but I don’t love you and I am definitely not blind to what you did to him. He’s better off without you, and I’ll make sure he realizes that one day.
That’s what best friends do for each other.
