LikeLiked by 2 people Reply What stops you from getting back in touch with that person? LikeLike Reply My son’s father, but only so I can tell him what a raging piece of shit he is. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I’m not sure how helpful would that be, but you can drop a letter with the message. LikeLike Reply It would make me feel better. He was mentally abusive and there are things I’ve held onto for years. Telling him to his face, being able to verbalize all that he put me through, would be therapeutic for me. LikeLiked by 1 person That’s very tough. How hard would it be to do that? LikeLike Nearly impossible. He likes to pretend I and his first born don’t exist. I think it alleviates the guilt he hopefully has for abandoning us shortly after my son was born. LikeLiked by 1 person My ordered, organised and self-assured self.

LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Did your self-esteem drop due to weight gain or there are some other factors involved too? LikeLike Reply Old teenage friend/ex. Not to get back together or anything like that, but just to see how life treated him, to know he’s happy & well. A catch up over a cuppa would be great. He’s one person who I know that doesn’t use social media, so it’s been hard to stay in touch when we went our separate ways. LikeLike Reply My first girlfriend. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Well, give her a call or something. Maybe she’d like to get back in touch with you too.

I tried to atone, but they weren’t interested. Lesson learned. LikeLiked by 2 people One of my close friends from high school. Had love for him like a brother. However, I stood back and realized that once I went to college, settled down and got married that him and I were on two different paths in our lives. If I wanted any success I could surround myself around the mess. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply How often do your paths still cross? LikeLike Reply Not at all.

Maybe I’m still overwhelmed by his passing but the only answer that came to mind was this memorable line..”May the bridges I burn light my way…” LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Yeah… It’s a huge loss… LikeLike Reply No one… 🙂 “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” ― Bernard M.

LikeLiked by 2 people Reply What can you do so that day comes faster? 🙂 LikeLike Reply My dyslexic doG. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply How come you broke the connection? LikeLike Reply Because I am a realist. I want a tangible relationship that exists where I do. Beside that, I am not all that important. (Although, I like myself very much) I cannot praise any dyslexic dog that encourages violence, discourages critical thinking, or damns people to hell for eternity. I strongly believe our communities need religion because values and morality are of paramount importance; but I do not believe anyone who says they speak on behalf of a dyslexic dog then condemns anyone who doesn’t agree with them. My connection is broken, because I am spoiled, I want a dyslexic dog that that responds. Look in any book, the prophets there asked no less than I. (I hope I am not offending, I believe that others beliefs are important, and do not want to devalue them.) LikeLiked by 1 person Myself.
