I’ve only ever seen my ex once, briefly, as he tried (unsuccessfully) to hide from me. It was about two years ago and I’ve never seen him since despite the fact that we still live in the same small town. Truthfully, I am indifferent to him. I don’t feel anything, neither hate nor love.
However I am in somewhat of a dilemma. After a get together with a bunch of my rowdy cousins last week, we decided we would haul ourselves to some new activity centre nearby. A friend of mine dramatically quietened over a coffee as I told her today. “I hate bringing this up with you but HE works there now, my brother saw him when he went”.
What exactly am I supposed to do with that information? The dilemma therefore stems from what I am expected to do versus what I really want to do. I assume it looks rather dramatic to go now as though I am looking for a fight/trouble if I do. On the other hand, why should I not go? I didn’t do anything wrong and I don’t see the point in spending my life hiding away from him. I have no concerns about any residual emotions surfacing upon seeing him……….ok, maybe a slight niggle that I’ll be tempted to slap him but I think I can control it. I do admit it gives me a great deal of satisfaction knowing where his life was to where it is now.
With that rowdy bunch behind me, I don’t think I will be the one wanting to hide anyway.
