My first love got married last week. It was a shotgun wedding, but I hope that at some point I'll be able to use this to get some sort of closure...

She has what I always wanted...

What I could have had.

I also have to wonder... Have I built up this image of him that isn't real? It's been at least a year since I have seen him face to face, but... Have I made him into something he isn't?

Let go... Let go.... Let go....

Has anyone here ever done it successfully? How?

I could have written that 2 years ago - word for word. You will survive and meet someone and fall in love again - someone better for the you now. You need to let go of who you were back then but keep it as a memory. One day it will feel like a happy memory - I promise. Therapy really helps!
