He and I have both have had a really hard time finding someone else who could replace the connection that we shared for the year we were together.
I figured he had found someone lately because I haven't heard from him in about a month. That generally means he has started a new relationship and it is good.
So today we finally connected again, and sure enough. He has found a girl that he thinks he might be able to love as much as he loved me.
I am so very happy for him. He deserves that kind of happiness. And I expect he will bring her great joy too because he is an incredible man.
I want to share something he said to me this morning. He knows about my long time struggle with BF and his lack of commitment to a future with me. So in our conversation today he said these most poignant words...
I just loved that statement.
"Lisa, please don't give him any more of your time. If he can't appreciate what he's had, he doesn't deserve any more."
It meant so much coming from a man who treasured every minute he had with me. He treated me like a queen every minute of every day.
He knows what he is talking about.
I am going to really think about those words.
I know it is true in my heart, and I have heard the same message from so many other people. But it is amazing how the words resound when they come from someone who loves you as much as I know he still loves me.
