What past situation have I been romanticizing?
My ex, more specifically the ex that has resurfaced in my life. I always looked at him as the “white knight” of my dating life. He introduced me to a life I had been waiting to live. He accepted me for who I was and who I was becoming. We fell into a groove that felt as light as air. I loved him. I thanked him, even on here a few times, for the time we had together.
He came back first as an online presence, then physically by stopping by. I was skeptical at first; after all this is the same guy that broke up with me three years ago. So I assume nothing, breathe deep, and just stay in the present moment. It wasn’t until last night when he went on a social media tirade that I realized two things: that he’s still the same unpredictable guy I knew, and that I’ve completely omitted his flaws in reminiscing over him.
I never knew what he was thinking on any given day. He use to disappear for days at a time, then return as if nothing was wrong. I never “felt” I was in a committed relationship with him and the only time I felt he actually cared about me was one drunken Mardi Gras night where I left the bar with another man and he got upset (again, at this point, i thought we were just “friends” and not in a relationship). There were always more questions than answers with him and I didn’t like the uncertainty about us hanging over me.
It’s okay for him to be back in my life. It’s okay that he crosses my mind from time to time. But I have to tell his full story and not just the one that satisfies me.
