Reader Story: Accepting True Love

We recently featured a Reader Story of a man that found his true love but she was soon diagnosed with cancer and tragically passed away. He had said he would do it all over again if he had the chance.

Today we have a story of a Reader that found her love but decided to let go. Please read through and share your thoughts.

A few years ago I met a friend, someone who started as the nerdy guy who randomly said hello. The more we talked the closer we became. Neither one of us wanted any type of relationship and after a few years of incredible comfortableness, I realized I had fallen for him.

This was incredibly hard for me to accept and I walked away from our friendship knowing it would hurt him deeply. I was afraid of messing something up for him, I would give anything to have told him the truth rather than acting like an immature child and walking away without a word.

I haven’t talked to him in a few years and yet I still think about him everyday with no way to contact him and tell him the truth. He is not the most forgiving person in the first place and I have no clue what the past few years have held for him. I almost wish I had never walked away because I know I still love him more than anyone else in this world. I would give anything to randomly run into him and tell him the truth and how sorry I am for ruining a friendship that meant more to me than words could express.

Never walk away from someone without telling them how you feel or it will haunt you like a ghost and leave you wondering what could have been. True love is loving someone for who they are and not what they look like.
