Be Careful What You Wish ForI, like many of the other people posting, have been reunited with my first love. We lived one street away from each other and became boyfriend/girlfriend almost immediately. We were both 13. We were together on and off all through jr high and hi school. We even got engaged when we were 19. I think God wanted us to follow different paths and I won't go into all the details but we broke up and it was bad, really bad. I never stopped thinking about him and even looked him up when I went to my 10-year HS reunion. As time went on, I realized I was missing something in my life but I couldn't quite figure out what it was. I contacted his son on Facebook on November 8, 2011 and he called the next day. Needless to say, we both knew what the outcome would be eventually.
Skip forward to now, January 2013, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank God for bringing us back together. Word of warning, though. It has been the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. I left my husband of 21 years, who is a good guy and a great father, and never mistreated me. My kids chose to stay with him and so now I am here in my hometown back with my first love and at times I am absolutely devastated about the choices I have made. I love him so much and cannot imagine life without him now. But I miss my kids and my "old life". So for anyone thinking about making that first step and contacting your first love, be forewarned. It will be wonderful but it will probably devaste some part of your life also. I chose to follow my heart and I hope someday the people in my life I have hurt will understand how much we love each other and that we could not stay apart.
