I know that public breakups are hard, but it just has to be this way. This is not easy for me because you will always be my one true love. Yet I just cannot do this to myself anymore. I have to move on with my life on my own terms.
When we were younger we had a terrific relationship. Those were great times that I will always cherish. I wish it could still be that way but it is just too painful when you are always around knowing that I can’t have you. It is not fair for you to ask me to stay strong any longer nor is it healthy for me to continue to live like this. I need to focus on myself right now and that means I must end this once and for all.
I will always love you, but I can no longer let myself be in love with you. Perhaps in the future we can be friends but for now it is best to go our separate ways.
I know that you have formed a strong relationship with my son and I promise that I will break it to him gently that you will not be around anymore. I know he will be crushed at first because he truly adores you, but in time he will move on.
I wish you nothing but the best, Oreo.
