I think that my ex did some girl on Friday night, so of course she gets into contact with me under the guise of supporting me because something awful has happened to some of the families who I work with and that she wants to “support.” I did think about her all day and I actually don’t care that I said that she was the one who I wanted to hug me via text. It’s true. I think that she was on my mind, because there was pain and pressure resulting from the problems and we had pain in our relationship. That was our normal rhythm. But, I do feel good about leaving her a VM saying that I have plenty of friends and if it was 5-years later, we could totally catch up, but right now, thanks for checking in on me, but what I miss is being her girlfriend. I do get that she will always push and pull me and that is more her issue than mine, because I’m for real. And I know that I can leave it… Just like my dog is typically able to do with those things that would cause her pain or she does not need.
I am glad that I’m writing, because I don’t feel jealous now. I was in Nancy Drew mode when I woke up this morning, and really the girl (Or even if it is a guy, because she does enjoy sex with men.) doesn’t matter, but what does is after she did it, she misses me. In fact, I completed a 9-mile hike on Friday and she commented on the album in the middle of the night on Friday. She can’t stop thinking about me. Me. The one who was a blue-light special who she won’t drive to, doesn’t know if I have longterm qualities, and just needs to see if we are compatible. Well, at the end of the day, we will not have a longterm relationship, because she will not let it just be and grow, but instead has to look for “hidden” meaning in what I say and put parameters on my behavior that she controls. So be it. Now, I need to focus on the fact that she’s an ex and that I don’t need another friend.
My cycling partner’s family was in town last week. I really liked meeting her sister; although my son was a mess and making interesting choices when he was upset. I know what we can focus on this school year, because he is actually doing much better with compliance, so now we can work on confidence. That is a good analogy for me too. I am a good rule follower in relationship, because although my personality is fairly strong, I usually bend because I’m naturally adaptable. This time around I will be cognizant about where my girl bends too. Compromise and flow. I really like that my cycling partner’s sister said about me, “I liked meeting her. She is such a genuine person.” That is me, and I know that I can find genuine too, because that is honestly the energy that I put out there. Tomorrow or later in the week, I am going to start writing about my 30-day plan.
