Past is past

To my Browncoat friends:

I want to thank you for responding positively the other night. Although we might not have ever been really "close" friends, your hugs and smiles mean a lot to me, and I really appreciate having you in my life. Thank you.

I want you to know that it was never my intention to try to drag you into a messy break-up. I have not, and will never say anything bad about "Eve" to you. Unfortunately, many of you first met me when she and I were already starting to have relationship problems. I take full responsibility for causing that situation in the first place, but when things began to really crumble, it ripped me apart. As a consequence, I was miserable in some very public situations (around you), and I couldn't tell any of you what was going on, because half of the time, I didn't know what was really going on myself, I just knew how I felt. Some people assumed that I was just a bad person, that I was trying to "control' Eve and purposely trying make her unhappy. I just wanted to say in my own defense that I'm not a bad person, I'm just a normal person who observed someone else trying to take my fiancee away, and I felt powerless to stop it.

When I tried to contact you in the past, it wasn't to try to get sympathy or to talk bad about Eve. I was really just reaching out to my friends - to all of my friends - for love, encouragement, and support. I totally understand that you didn't want to get caught up in the drama, and I respect the fact that you remained neutral throughout all of it. You are good people, and I'm glad that we can be still be friends regardless.

In conclusion:
The past is the past, and I'm over it.

Thank you - God bless all of you.
Your friend,
