Ex-Soulmate (Best Friend)

10/24/2020 I will always remember as one of the worst days of my adult life. I knew I had to let go of someone I once loved and the sooner I climbed that mountain the sooner I could move on with my life. We started off well, but there towards the end she didn’t want to be friends anymore. She didn’t want to fix the damage she caused nor did she want to fight for our friendship. So for the past two years I’ve been in the process of letting go. I was sitting in town eating Chinese and Sober by Bad Wolves came on. The lyrics are what broke me and trust me, it came on without warning. Although my issue with this person was not drug related the lyrics still worked and that was what wrecked me internally. I pit the food dish down and burst into tears without warning and at that precise moment, my other soulmate called me and asked me if I wanted to meet someone. I told her I was grieving, but I was in town. Oddly enough she wanted me to come over and meet up. I went to her, thinking if I met her date and her in general it would distract me from those feelings and make it stop. So, I drive over to the plaza and deliberately parked away from their car so I could compose myself and foolishly thought I would be fine afterwards.
