Oh, the one that got away. It’s an ex. No, wait. It’s THE ex. The one who’s tops among the past loves of your life. They still permeate your thoughts, you remember every little thing about them and your time together, it’s the person who floats in and out of your head every now and again. Maybe you want him/her back, maybe your time together was better than any you can remember, maybe you just wonder what might have been. Or maybe you just miss them. Not in a “I want you back” way, just… miss them and what you had.
The one that got away isn’t someone who dumped you and left you shattered. It’s simply the person, no matter how hard you both tried, with whom it didn’t work. This ex was, and hopefully still is, a good person and no matter how things ended, your opinion about that has never wavered.
They are someone who deserves to be loved and whomever has their heart is the luckiest person around. Hopefully lessons have been learned, things that needed to be worked on were worked on and he/she is happy and loved and in love. But most of all, hopefully the feeling is mutual and they hope the same things for you.
So if you had a chance to see them again and talk to them, what would you say? Buzzfeed’s latest video, above, wonders that very thing. And it’s very, very real and hits home. Because who among us hasn’t had these thoughts? If you have the chance, perhaps reach out just to say those simple things. Maybe say them before they get away. It might be just the thing they want to hear and exactly what you needed to say.
