Today. Not that I plan on contacting her to wish her a happy one. We get along somewhat, but aren't close enough for me to do something like that. The thing is I feel awkward around her, or speaking to the woman now, even on that book of faces place. ( no we are not friends on there either ) To know someone so well for so long and suddenly have all that up ended ... took some getting use to. So much so that it's like I never knew her at all. Funny but I think I have more in common with a stranger on the street then I have with her now, or I did then as I look back on it.

Crazy, the song by Patsy Cline sums up our life together perfectly. The line from the song "I knew, you'd love me as long as you wanted...then someday leave me for somebody new.." could have been written about us. I just knew that was how it would end for us, her walking away as she did.

I actually met the ex for the first time at a costume party around this time of year. Hell, I think it might have even been on her birthday. I had eyes for Mary, her friend. But somehow ended up getting together with her and becoming a couple that night. In our courtship she was the one doing the chasing. She wanted me ( for some odd reason I could never fathom ) That is what drew me to her, and made me fall in love with her, her wanting... me. Something in my life that rarely happens. Yeah I'm not really all that good with chatting up the ladies. I never was. If I knew then what would transpire I think I would have chosen not to become involved with her at all.

Oh well one can never cross bridges that have been burned away. I suppose she's happy in her new life, as she wanted to be? So perhaps it's all for the best? Though today the sting is still there and I'm reminded of it all. Like a bandage that is slowly being pulled away from an old scar.

Off to shower now....

On significant days like these, the melancholy is and will get thick. But oh well, whatever happened, happened. I think itโ€™s healthy to think back during these times, but also remember both sides - the good and bad times. There are lessons worth leaving in there. Life will continue to move, whether we like it or not. We might as well nudge it forward
Hope tomorrow will make you feel better ๐Ÿ˜Š

I get it. The sting does still linger. For me not my ex. I glad that ended one way or the other. Definitely with my late wife. But that's different. I have had a few serious relationships though that have ended with a punch in the heart though. Letting go is a process. Our karma.

I've wondered how it all feels. My parents divorced and my mother became bi polar. She hated him. She loved him. She hated him. It was nuts.

I'm sorry it still stings. Hugs!!
