I’ve been avoiding writing this post for quite some time. It’s hard to put some things in words, especially those things dearest to you. But a lot of you have been asking and so, here it is. Marcel and I did, indeed, break up. He is still part of my heart, and will continue to be a huge part of my life. We just both felt it was time. Of course, as any ending is, it’s sad. And I’m terrible with goodbyes. Three years of our lives we spent together, and they were the best three years of my life. We both grew together and helped one another more than you can possibly imagine. So much of who I am today is because of him, and I could not be more grateful. Marcel, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for helping me be stronger, more open, more confident in myself, more forgiving, and showing me true happiness. And for you guys, I hope you find people in your life that you can love forever, no matter what happens. Not every love story needs a fairytale ending. Sometimes life just hands you exactly what you need in that moment. But you might not always need it. And then it’s okay to move on, and open yourself up to the next chapter of your life. Because I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, and no matter what, you will be okay.
