How difficult is it to break up with someone? How do you get your point across to someone and let them know your relationship with them is over? I’ve been thinking of a way to break up with someone for a while now. This person is closely associated with me and when I found out about the person’s lie, I couldn’t continue with the relationship. So, I decided to write a break up letter to the person. I want to publicly be dissociated from the person. I want that person to get the message that I’ve moved on. I’m with someone who is a lot more fun to be with and who understands me better. This letter will give you the closure you need because this is the last of me you will ever hear.
You were my closest ally
I ran to you first every time I had to make a decision
Everywhere I went, I sought you for answers
When I want to do something, you asked me how that’s possible
Telling me I have to take calculated risks, so I don’t regret things
There’s always a rational explanation for why I should or shouldn’t do something
Then I made a new friend, Grace
But you couldn’t afford to share me
In a jealous rage you asked me what Grace had to offer me
You blocked all access to her because you told me all she had to offer were lies
You always found every opportunity to make my new friend look stupid
I sought comfort in your words because you seemed to make more sense than my new friend
You told me not to do things blindly just because someone new was here
You asked me how I could choose to obey someone I couldn’t even see
We both understood each other so it felt better to stick with what I knew
I got comfortable because you told me to
Trying out new things is scary, so why do them?
Because of you, I flirted with the idea of giving up
I shared my most intimate secrets with you
And because you knew them, you manipulated me
You introduced me to a world of mediocrity
Showing me what living that kind of life guarantees
I couldn’t see past your lies because I was blinded by how consistent your words were
I thought we were friends
When in reality, all you did was enslave me
Then my new friend told me not to take her words for it
She told me to study to show myself approved (2 Tim. 2:15)
She told me to study the biographies of others who have listened to her words
But you told me I was different from them, it was a different time
Like a fool, I believed you
We were different, you said
Grace was so persistent
She asked, why do you have to be ashamed of what you already know?
I knew I had to let you go, but you knew me so well
I figured I’d rather stick to what I know rather than trying new things
I forgot that I was still holding on to your lies that new things are bad
I became trapped in my comfort zone
Great thing I took to the advice of my new friend
I saw that I have been made free for freedom’s sake (Galatians 5:1)
I really shouldn’t be subject to any form of slavery anymore
Even if it is under the guise of a great friendship
I confronted you with this news
But you asked me what that meant
How could I accuse you of slavery when you always got me to do the right things?
You asked if you had ever steered me wrong
And foolishly, I believed you
I asked Grace why she’s trying to sow a seed of discord between us
She simply replied by asking me what your name is
What’s in a name?
She asked me what kind of relationship we had
I thought Grace was only jealous of our friendship
Then she asked me again
What’s your friend’s name?
I said, Fear
She told me that I have not been given a spirit of fear (2 Tim. 1:7)
But of love, and of a sound mind
I defended you and told her you were sound
Your advice makes sense and I could always count on it
Grace didn’t stop there
She said there is no fear in love
She told me I’m a new creature (2 Cor. 5:17)
How can I be a new creature when I get older every minute? (John 3:1-21)
She said it’s not just by appearance
She said my mind has to be renewed (Romans 12:2)
I told her she’s beginning to spit out rubbish and say things that makes me rely on you
Then she packed up mud and spit on it (John 9:6-7)
I looked at her with contempt for acting foolishly
And just as I was thinking about how gross what she was doing was
She rubbed the mud on my eyes
Ewwww!!!! I said
How disgusting. How could you rub that on my eyes?
She said, go wash your face
I went to the only place I knew to wash my face
That was when I saw it
The Lord is my light and my salvation (Psalm 27:1)
Why should I fear?
You see, we can’t be friends
I cannot allow you rule my life and oversee my decisions
I have been created for interesting things
My relationship with you is over from now on
I’ve moved on with my new friend, Grace
All traces of you have been deleted from my life

This is truly inspiring. There’s no better way to put it than this. Fear – enough is enough.
Thanks for reading. There’s always room for a new beginning
I sure remember those days of breaking up. Not fun – but I always thought it was for the best and turned out it was. Go with your gut.
Yeah…. that was what I eventually eent with. It paid off actually
very deep……everyone needs to publicly disassociate with this wicked friend to shame him
Yeah, I know right. Glad I got rid of the stench fear left on me. Thanks for reading
Wow! This was sooooo good! You had me going in the beginning. I was like “oh no”. Then I saw it was done fear! So good! So creative!

I hadn’t correlated comfort and fear so well as you just did for me! Great post!
Yeah, it took me a while to also realize that my fear forces me to stay in one position and not try for something else. Thanks for reading
