…You. (of course, duh)
I was going to start this with ‘long time no see’ but on second thought, it doesn’t really fit, you know? Maybe something like ‘I’m glad we can chat again’ would be more appropriate, although that can also be confusing, so oh well.
In the past year, we’ve been chatting more. I don’t know if that’s good or bad, you know? I mean, I’m happy about it, but I understand that not everyone feels comfortable with that. But hey, you’re you, and you have the right to set your own boundaries.
Yeah, I get it.
So, anyway, I have a confession to make. For the first time in years, I’ve had my heart broken. But it’s okay, you know? It’s not like it’s a big deal between us. (sigh)
It happens all the time in this big ol’ world. And it’s not something you have to worry about too much. What’s important is that you learn to find your own happiness.
I remember saying to you once, ‘be happy, okay?’ no matter where or with whom, what matters is that you are honest with yourself. Otherwise, it’ll be really hard. But I don’t want to sound preachy or anything. Sorry about that.
Anyway, when it’s time for someone to get hurt, they will get hurt. Sometimes there’s nothing we can do about it. But I don’t want you to carry that weight around. If we feel responsible for other people’s feelings, it can be really heavy.
So to anyone out there reading this, don’t be afraid to take a chance on happiness. It might work out, it might not, but if you find an opportunity, take it and be happy. These chances don’t come around too often, and if you miss them, you might regret it forever.
Around your birthday last year, Vega was shining in the sky near my house. It was just rising towards the east at night. I remembered it was close to Tanabata. Thinking of the story, I also thought of you, so let’s say it’s yours. I’ll probably remember you again next time I see it in the sky.
Maybe one day we’ll be able to meet and chat again, maybe on a relaxed day between busy weeks.
Wherever your path takes you, I hope you stay healthy and happy. Thank you.
P.s.: I remember the last time I saw you. You were wearing a white-grey shirt. Sorry for saying this so late, but you looked great. Beautiful.
