From Our Readers: Thank You for the Rollercoaster Ride

It isn't always a happy ending when it comes to love.

It was a young love back then that went a little deeper. We were both immature and naive that we thought love was the most enchanted thing we could ever feel and that we could conquer the world together. We were like kids entering an amusement park for the very first time, wondering how it feels to ride a rollercoaster. It didn’t matter if we’d hop out of it bruised as long as we sat next to each other. And even though we were young at that time, we were actually right when we said love is an adventure. It was just US that we were not right about.

But hey, it's not that it didn't felt right. Maybe it just wasn’t meant to be. Maybe we were just destined for any other person out there. Maybe we were just better off without each other. I will forever be thankful for that relationship with you. You made me the happiest when we were together. You taught me things I never thought I was capable of learning. You made me laugh and cry at the same time. You were there when I needed someone to carry me and hold my hand when I get scared. You brought out the youth in me and took me out of my comfort zone.  But sadly, things don't always turn out the way we want it to. We got tired and exhausted that it became appalling. We stopped feeling the hype of our ups and downs and we just couldn’t get along with its rapid flow anymore. We were not perfect and so was the love we had for each other. We matured and grew apart and we became the people we never thought we'd be and maybe that's the very reason why it didn't last. We realized that it takes a pair of mature people to ride a rollercoaster and not just two kids wanting to try it out. It finally bit us that a lift of that kind is more than just a sense of warm fuzzies.

READ: A Letter from the Girl You Left Behind

It isn't always a happy ending when it comes to love. But despite the fact that we didn't end up together, I still thank you for all the butterflies in my stomach, the mini heart attacks, the silly experiences, the appreciation I've been looking for all along. Thank you for being gutsy and for doing it for us. Thank you for loving me just as much as I wanted to be loved. Thank you for the moments we've shared together. Thank you for an unforgettable adventure. Thank you for thinking that I was worthy of taking risks with. It was truly a rollercoaster ride kind of love. It was bumpy and rough and yet you took the courage and joined me in. I'm sorry our turn for the ride was over and we had to leave through different exit doors maybe with dizzy heads but this time with braver hearts and free-swinging souls.
