yesterday a dear friend pinged me to see if i'd be up for dinner or dessert. after we got our ice cream and sat down, she asked, 'how are you?' Three words filled with meaning. I think she saw that I was hurting (i've alluded to it quietly in some of my IG posts), and took the initiative to check on me. And i thought, 'how very lucky am i to have a friend like this?'
today i attended the funeral of a man who made a huge impact in the lives of many, both directly through his career as a teacher, as well as indirectly through his children (two of which are pastors)it's been an interesting three days, that my heartbreak would coincide with reconnecting with a group of people who once were so significant to me.
you know. i haven't felt hurt and pain like this in awhile. logically i know it's the right decision, logically i know he can't give me what i want, and vice versa. but it doesn't stop it from feeling any less shitty. yesterday we talked, and i was honest about where i am emotionally with this. and told him that i just need time and space to heal. it was such a tough conversation, also interspersed with gentle funny moments.
