Regrets

One thing that I will always regret for the rest of my life is breaking up with my then boyfriend of more than 3 years via a Dear John letter.

I am so ashamed that I did this.

It sounded like a good idea at that time – less drama, ripping the band-aid off and closing a chapter in my life. Plus I was peer pressured into doing it.

But he deserved better. Even if he cheated on me first by hooking up with a girl while we were together. Two wrongs don’t make a right. For his family though, never mind that he was the one who wronged me first, I will forever be that bitch who broke their pretty boy’s heart.

It has been so long now, ancient history, really. But there are some moments in your life that sticks to your memory forever, something that will leave a bad taste in your mouth.

This was one of them.

  1. As a woman who comes from a long line of men who served in the military and currently in a LDR with a man currently serving in the Navy, I actually think you might have done what was best for the situation you were in. Military relationships are hard, period.

    So here’s my unasked for advice…
    -Stop regretting it, its done and in the past.
    -He cheated, yes it common in the service among those who serve and also sometimes their spouses but its still wrong and he probably would’ve kept doing it, so leaving him was the best thing you could do.
    -Dear John letters suck, but you got a clean break where you were both aware of the situation it was all there in ink.
    -Don’t ever label yourself as “the bitch”; don’t care what his family thinks either.

    FINALLY…
    Remember one day he might Thank You for that letter because it allowed him to maybe find someone who was better suited to his life style.

    Look in the mirror, realize how beautiful you are inside and out. You got yourself out of a relationship that was potentially very toxic quicker and are worth a man who treats you with the love and respect you deserve.

      And yes, you are right. It is all in the past and I should stop regretting. Appreciate you sharing your two cents on the matter.
