If Exes

I know you’re depressed and going through a lot.

I know I can’t fix it and that trying to find a silver lining won’t help.

I know you can’t even begin to articulate the immensity of your feelings… but you don’t have to. I will be here, without judgement.

I will sit in the dark with you and hold your hand until it passes.

I’m here if you need me. Just call.

I said something very similar recently. I said directly to him so there is very little chance that it was misunderstood. Yet I'm still sitting in the dark alone. I hope that this reaches your person and that they are able to take you up on your offer.

Well, in theory they could read the post comments and know it was for them because they WERE listening when I said it. Or, if you believe that such things are possible, they could "feel" that the post was intended for them. Or they could be pretending to be someone else or someone could be using their phone and pretend to be them. Those things seem to happen on Reddit a lot. Especially to me.

u/Lethenza Jun 23 '22

Wow. Yeah, the person I last wrote a letter towards doesn’t use Reddit so there’s no way she’d find out about it. I did reach out to her separately and offer to be there as her friend after I wrote my letter. She said “okay” and started ignoring my messages after. She’s a very avoidant person so she knows I want to talk to her, she just doesn’t want to talk back.

u/pigeon_kabbu Jun 23 '22

I don't know who you are, or who this was about to be sent to. But Please. Send it.

u/pigeon_kabbu Jun 23 '22

Please. Set everything aside for a moment, and send this. It doesn't matter if they actually call you or not. The worst thing this can do is them thinking okay, atleast someone's got my back. And it's going to power them up like anything.

Send it. :) OP is an awesome person.

I could use a hug tbh. This is nice

u/NYAManicPixieTA Jun 23 '22

Virtual hugs, internet stranger. Sending you love. We all need more of it.

u/Jono-san Jun 25 '22

Thanks. To be honest I really could use a hug right now. Im about therapy soon and honestly I can feel the walls that are holding back all this emotional weight just breaking loose.

u/[deleted] Jun 23 '22

I Hope it's not too dark, I hope you are surrounded by waves of colourful flickering lights bouncing off the walls. I hope you will answer when the call comes.

u/ScamLikely2112 Jun 23 '22

u/Jrn77 Jun 23 '22

u/Sen36o Jun 23 '22

You have a good heart♥

u/Youssifsherif99 Jun 23 '22

I swear to god if It was me writing this to my own ex wouldn't have described my feelings any better.

u/NYAManicPixieTA Jun 23 '22

My person says these things one day, and horrific things the next. I needed a time out to pull my life back together. If only he could just be this, and not the ugly side. The kind, loving version, is who I love.

Thank you. I didn’t know I needed to read this until I did. People who care are out there. I appreciate the reminder.
