We all have someone who has walked into our lives, made a lasting impression we never thought possible and then, for whatever reason, they have simply walked out of our lives again.
All the negatives are forgotten much easier than the person in question. The person is used as a future yard stick to compare other people and their actions to. You may wonder how they are, what they are doing with their lives – something may happen and you know that they are the only person who would totally understand.
That someone is ‘The One That Got Away‘.
A recent post and video popped up on my feed that provoked me to pen this post. A video of confessions from random people to their own one that got away. Well worth a watch and if you do not feel any emotion over it, then you must have a heart of stone.
It certainly struck a personal note, so I went on a mission to find out what my dearest friends would say to their own One That Got Away…
Each person had their own poignant statement they would make, that was personal to their circumstances and I am truly grateful they let me share with you.
Beth from Beth In A Box simply stated ‘I knew.’ After listening to the scenario, I am totally with her on that!
On a coffee break with Jenny from The Brick Castle, her story was really touching and her statement was ‘Would you even recognise me now?’
You are probably all wondering what would I say to my own One That Got Away…
Quite a cryptic one actually…
‘My third person wants to know why your third person keeps checking on me? Do you want to know I am happy or are you wondering if it’s too late?’
I am fully aware that my One That Got Away will read this post, in fact, this person was my inspiration for the greatest post I wrote this year. Visitor stats are a wonderful thing, in the most part, but in situations like this just create a huge list of unanswered questions, such as ‘why?’. Even my tough cookie exterior wasn’t expecting such an impression to be made earlier this year. It’s not that easy to forget, no matter how hard you try, there is always a reminder in some way shape or form.
So, what would you say to the One That Got Away?
I will end this post on a profound statement, that for me sums life up…
‘In the end, everything will be ok; if it is not yet ok, then it is not yet the end…’
Here’s hoping I get my answers!
