How Close You Can Get

It's strange how close you can get to a person. And how quickly. It's also strange how quickly that can be taken away. How one day everything is going great and a couple days later it's all been completely destroyed and has left you heartbroken. Because that's exactly how my summer is going.

Meet a person. Hit it off great. Goes well for a month then all of a sudden not a word. No responses to texts or calls. Nothing. So two weeks go by and we finally end up closing the same nights at the mall. So I wait for him, the craziest thing I've ever done for a guy (though to some it may not be crazy but to me...yeah, I don't do that kind of stuff) but I needed to know.

So after about 30 minutes of waiting he comes out and he talks for a minute, saying he's in a bad place, he's knows its no excuse (like hell it is), and he's sorry. So I just said alright and walked away. It's been weeks since we were good and it still hurts. This is a pain I've never felt. I never want to feel this again. Heck, I don't even know how long this will continue because I'm becoming a total wreck and don't know how to get myself out of it and move on.

It's so easy to tell someone to let go of something but when it comes down to it, it's not as easy as it sounds. How long does it take before you're back to who you were before?

He says he's in a bad place? Well, how sad for him. Tell yourself stories about his bad place. For example, imagine him sunbathing on a beautiful beach. He falls asleep and because you're not there to wake him up and remind him to turn over, he sunburns his (fill in the blank). When he wakes up, he realizes he locked his keys in the car because you weren't there to remind him not to leave them in the ignition. The sand is really hot. You can hear him saying, "Ouch, ouch, ouch," as he makes his way back to the car where his flip-flops are.... You get the idea.

Everything must go through a process. You just cannot push things to happen right away. Don't worry you will soon get by.
