It’s not you; it’s me.

You and I have been long term companions. You’ve been with me through it all, and I truly appreciate it. Sleepless nights thinking about life, pulling all-nighters for an English paper, and those fun, crazy nights before a soccer game. Now, you are the strength I need to keep on going with my busy life. I couldn’t have done it without you.

I am not going to lie and say I just used you because I came around to loving you. I do love you. You know that right? I can’t picture a morning without your bitter yet smooth taste. However, today is different. I woke up a new person, and we have to part ways. Believe me, it’s not you; it’s me.

I am sorry, but last night I was just so tired. I couldn’t stay true to you, and it happened. I went to bed… early! It must have been around 7:00pm. Can you believe I slept through the night? It was incredible. I got about thirteen hours of sleep.

This morning, I woke up before my alarm! It was the weirdest feeling. I ate breakfast – breakfast! Despite the traffic, I had a peaceful commute to work, and I was early. Oh COFFEE, today I don’t need you; I am sorry.

Thanks for reading,

Gabby Salazar
