Sometimes light bulb moments don’t go off with bells and whistles attached. Sometimes they sneak up on you insidiously and whisper.
I wanted it to work out so differently. Some people bitch and complain later in life because they know they didn’t put out the effort. I don’t have those types of regrets.
I was waiting for you to follow through on what you said you wanted last year. Not just because I wanted it, but because you really knew you wanted it too.
Instead what I received couldn’t have been worse had you been intentionally trying to cause me pain. How could I ever get past that even with forgiveness?
In honor of Maya Angelou, I think this conveys my thoughts clearly:
I’ve learned that
people will forget
what you said
People will forget
what you did
But people will never forget
How you made them feel.
