My most serious ex reached out yesterday to close one of our joint accounts.
I haven't had any contact with him in almost a year. He's married now.
I congratulated him and wished him the best.
I don't think we'll ever speak again.
He lives on an island with his new wife. He owns a very successful business. He learned how to sail, and spends his weekends on the ocean.
He is happy. Much happier than when we were together.
I bought a house in Austin, TX. I grow fruit trees and have the best friends. I write a blog that thousands of people read, and I spend my weekends making art.
I am happy. Much happier than when we were together.
And maybe this is the best ending our story could have had.
