Excerpt from today’s post on www.say-waugh.com
It hasn’t been very long, but I still count each day that we don’t speak. I take a deep breath before my head hits the pillow every night because I made it through another day without calling or texting him. What they say about distance making the heart grow fonder is true except I wish it wasn’t true when one of those hearts is far away not thinking about the other.
It grows fond of the day you will meet again, but in this case that won’t come. I usually end statements like that with “but it’s okay.” It’s a coping mechanism more than it is the truth. It’s what you say to someone who is downright inconsolable. It’s what I say to myself to keep the smile on my face when people ask what happened or when I’m alone trying not to deal with it. I think when people reach the point of public breakdowns it’s because they know in private you can drown in it. In public someone can call you crazy and shame you into calming down, or their efforts to help you bottle your emotions makes you realize you’re acting a fool. And if that doesn’t work then you’ll get committed and talk to the court appointed person about your issues.
No I’m not there. I’m just ranting about the messed up places heartbreak can take you.
