That Magical Feeling

There is this magical feeling. To some, it is considered awful. In my case, it isn’t—obviously. The feeling is when you realize you don’t love that one person anymore. To me, it is freedom. Whether they realized it or not, I am not emotionally chained to them against my will. I am free of them. It is akin to taking off that one pair of beyond uncomfortable shoes. Yeah, we all have that one pair that surpasses all the others.
I realized that I wasn’t in love anymore when I started getting irritated at something that had nothing to do with that person and I asked myself if I truly cared. Did I? I didn’t and somehow it made me realized I no longer cared for that person in that way. The point, the beautiful point, is that I have survived the storm. I am free.
