Sometimes it takes a “kind gesture” to realize that something is a-miss.
Last night DSNBP swing by to help with my couch. He brought me flowers. He said he knew I was struggling with life, that I liked flowers, and that they would make me smile. Then the SOB tells me not to read into it.
What the fuck does that even mean? The only thing that I was reading was that you care. I know you don’t want me anymore. Is it necessary for you to tell me that you don’t want me to think you do? Kind of a dick statement.
And for this situation I am grateful;
for the people who show us there’s got to be a better choice, even if that choice is just to love yourself. This guy knows I love him yet he insists on being a jack-ass. If he was just being charming I might still be thinking I want that relationship back.
What are you thankful for today?
