Example Letter #1
Never did I think it was possible for one person to hurt another so badly. I never wanted this for us. I know we could have been great together. I know that I would have stayed with you for the rest of our lives. I gave you chance after chance, but you threw every one out the window. I wanted nothing but the best for you. I loved you so much.
I remember in the beginning how you treated me like a queen. That changed as you became more critical and hurtful. You once were everything to me and now we can't be together without my feeling hurt. It's not that I don't want you; it's because I can not be with you if you do not change your behavior.
I want you to know, though, that I will always remember you as the one who taught me how to love with my whole being. I know this will be hard on you now. It's hard on me too. I hope one day you'll understand why I have to do this. If you agree to get help, call me.
Example Letter #2
You taught me that I was special and that I deserved all the world could give. You said that I was truly an angel, and that there are people out there worthy of my love. I wanted your love and you said that you did love me.
Then you taught me that love doesn't last forever and that those you love can lie. And you left me. I sometimes wonder if I can stop loving you. The answer is that I can and that I will never again let anyone hurt me as you have. The feelings that I have for you seem still to be feelings of love. Perhaps they are, but they may also be feelings of sadness about what I had hoped we could be together.
