Chasing The American Dream

March 29, 2005

LETTER TO SELF

Be prepared, dude. She’s gonna drop a huge bomb on you which is gonna totally crush the life out of you. She and J talked everything over and they agreed to work it out without any contact from you. So the rule is, she is not going to see you/contact you anymore. You’re gonna have to deal with, somehow, this devastating news. Yes, you’ll have to cry and let it all out once again. You’ll have to question ‘why?’ You will have hit rock bottom. You’ll have to dig deep to find your inner strength, but it is there and you’ll need it to carry on. There is no magic solution here. This will be the toughest thing you have ever gone through considering all that you have overcome to this point. It will take time to heal from this one, and you may never really get over it. But you must get over it because it can take you back down to Depression Road, and you don’t want to end up there again, do you?

This is my advice to you, man. Read it until you’re blue in the face. Remember, you told yourself you would risk this very moment at the small chance that it would work out with her. And you got your one night+ with the fair princess. Now bittersweet memories which will last a lifetime. Hang in there!

  • Obviously, it wasn't meant to be, she's not The One for you.

    Go ahead and feel your pain. But there's no need to allow the wrong one to push you to rock bottom. It's not about you, so there's no reason for self-blame. Heal thyself and appreciate that this happened now and not later.

    I know it may be tough, but please -- this lost love isn't worth mourning. Sounds as though you were her back burner guy anyway. Just think of what happiness is still pending for you. Will you be ready for it?

    Rock on, 'Tation. I know you're better'n that. Hugs to ya.

  • I was once told by a close friend, "You should never pursue a relationship with another until you are completely satisfied and happy with yourself." Only from my observation and in my humble opinion PT, I think you need time on your own. No dating. Just you liking life in your own skin. Find out the things you want and like in life that doesn't involve another person. Learn to be happy on your own. It's damn hard to do, but vital. You are a great guy and it will come all in good time. I have found that I never found love when I was looking. Here comes the cliche' part. Love finds you when you least expect it.

  • hey sorry to hear that it didn't work out..i know how much it meant to you that the two of you get together and things work out..but most of the time things happen for a reason and i believe that this happened to make you take some time to get to know yourself a bit better, pt..friends..tata1005..and i told you once before that "advice" is spelled with a "c" not an "s"..silly boy..

  • Amanda, I don't agree with your close friend. Why should only happy people have relationships? And anonymous? Fuck you.

  • Pep, because miserable people make others in that relationship miserable, that's why.

    Also, we wish you could've come up with something much, much better for Anonymous. As it stands, it makes you look worse than him/her.

  • Pep, because miserable people make the others in THAT relationship miserable.

    Also, we all wish you could've come up with something much more imaginative for Anon than the usual. As it stands, it kind of makes you look worse.

  • PT,

    Writing a letter to yourself is a GREAT idea.

    Next you need to send yourself some of your strange magic.

  • I assume this is a case of love turned sour? Never easy. Hang in there. What isn't meant to be just isn't meant to be. There's someone else out there.
