An Interactive Twilight Experience.
“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around." - Bob Marley
This happened to me, or at least I thought it did. Eric turned my world around the moment I met him. We were inseparable from day one and did everything together. He was my inspiration in so many ways. We talked about the future often and had high hopes. But, fate decided it wasn't meant to be. He broke up with me. Well, he stated we should "be friends" and "see other people", but we all know what that really means. This shattered my world. I'm not sure what motivated this. Maybe he wanted to be single? Maybe his parents had something to do with it? I always had the feeling they didn't like me. All he told me is that he needed space. I never once pushed him into anything or forced him to do things he didn't want to do. I'm not the needy type. My parents raised me better than that. I just don't get it. It must be a guy thing.
This happened 3 months ago, just after I got my teaching certificate. I'm still getting over it, but I decided it would be best for me to move on and just live my life. I have decided to just let things happen. If it's meant to be he'll come back. If not, oh well. There are plenty of fish in the sea. My mom has been really supportive, saying that I don't need a guy to be happy. My father has always been the type to want to protect his little girl, so he was ready to go after Eric with a baseball bat, but he seems over it. He sees me in a much better place and that makes him happy.
So, was Bob Marley right? Does it only happen once? I sure hope not, but if so, I think I can deal with it.
