I owe you an apology. I’ve judged you too harshly. We were both manipulated, lied to by omission. I realize you were not intentionally hurting me. I was collateral damage.
I think under different circumstances, we could have been friends. And if you are the one he needs to be happy, then I am glad you are together.
You’re a better match for him, a better partner. He finds in you the things he didn’t find in me. It’s taken me a long time to really come to terms with this. It doesn’t mean I’m inferior or you are superior, it just means you two are more compatible.
I hope he treats you with the respect you deserve. I hope you help him remember the good parts of himself, to quiet those self doubts he has.
I apologize and hope you find it in your heart to send forgiveness my way.
