So after my brother's visit, I had to deal with some personal stuff. I won't go into details, but...

Ex, if you're reading this, too - then know this: 

Despite everything, I do not wish you any harm. Harboring vengeance or any other hurtful thoughts would ultimately hurt only myself, prolong the pain, and prevent my own recovery. 

I hope you can realize that, too, and can move past everything. Maybe in time we can forgive each other. For now, it's best we go and stay separate ways. I am ready to let go of you, finally - hope you can find the strength to let me go as well, in peace and without any need for lashing out.
