Regions of Bulgaria and Macedonia were a part of one country for a long time. That is true. I don't think they were split into two separate countries many times. Especially given the fact that the Republic of Macedonia was born in 1991.
But the historical argument isn't quite valid, because the region of Macedonia was also a part of Turkey (Ottoman Empire), Greece (Byzantine Empire) and even Serbia (the capital of the Serbian Empire was in Skopje).

I think this sounds very chauvinistic. It reminds me of what Šešelj
used to preach. His theory was that Croats are Catholic Serbs and Bosniaks Muslim Serbs, the proof is that we speak the same language. He would also later go and say that Macedonians are also Serbs, but that their language has undergone strong bulgarization after centuries of Bulgarian rule.
EDIT: About the languages. Don't forget that Bulgarians first had a slavian alphabet. That alphabet we gave to Russians and other countries
Glagolitic was the first Slavic alphabet. It was made by Greeks. But I do acknowledge that it was the old Bulgarians who created the Cyrillic alphabet. Old Church Slavonic has also had a huge influence on other Slavic languages.
But I don't see how this is relevant.
