I Didn’t Know It Was Going To Be My Happy Ending | The Break Up


Today I talked to my ex boyfriend about our relationship. This was the first time we ever had this conversation. I never really knew the real reason why things didn’t work out. As of right now I can honestly say I finally realize why things didn’t work out. I use to regret us breaking up but he did me a huge favor. I never really looked at our relationship form his point of view. When I tell you guys that I was the most boring person in the world you would not even believe me. I was the type of girl who would rather stay at home and watch television and hang out instead of going on dates with him. I guess I got really comfortable with us playing house like people would  say. I was kind of a smothering girlfriend who always wanted to be around her boyfriend.I talk about girls that smother their boyfriends and its not flattering. Letting go of that relationship has transformed my life.

I may be exaggerating but we probably went on like 20 dates and we dated for a year and a half. I think its because we never really dated before we actually got into a relationship. As I look back at my relationship and the person I was then and the person I am now I am really impressed. I am now more out going, adventurous, spontaneous, and fun. I realized that I only have 10 years to live in my 20’s so I have to make them count. I enjoy all the memories I’ve been these last two years. I can actually say that I thank him for the heartbreak but I wish he kept the tears and the crazy emotions. Not having someone in your twenties isn’t the end of the world people. It’s okay to be single in your twenties. These 10 years are the years of adventure and being spontaneous. I want to be able to say that I lived through my twenties. I rather live a life of oh wells than what if’s. The one thing that you can never get back is time. Don’t get me wrong if you meet someone in your twenties date him or her. Just do it ! Do adventurous things with them but don’t be in a  rush to settle down to fast. I’ve only ever had one serious boyfriend and I am 23 years old.  I am okay with that. I always tell myself never put your life on pause for love. I am happy with the Karly I am today. She is a great woman and one day be a great wife and mother but until then. Until next time.(:
