I made a decision to try to reconnect with some important people from my past and see how receptive they were to my attempts. Round one went well. I found an old boyfriend who was full of compliments and happy to hear from me. The best compliment he gave me was, I’ve never met anyone else like you. Just these few kind words have made me realize that I am not any of the horrible things my ex called me or feels about me now. He has always been the one with the problem and I have always been the person my old boyfriend described. My ex just never gave me any space to be me. He was suffocating me.
This may heal me. Fingers crossed. Now to figure out who’s next and not be afraid to say, Hi.
