    Tonight I’m reading expired love letters

    from someone who is now the biggest stranger I’ve ever known.

    Love letters that still knock my fucking socks off…that still require tissues…that still smell like fall.


    Love letters that will never meet a match.

    Love letters that couldn’t hold their weight.

    Love letters full of empty promises.

    I still wonder if she knows how far she dug just to break me.

    There’s something about knowing that you will never be the same again that will somehow let you start over.

    I have no choice but to be new.

    Hello, Self. Pleased to make your broken acquaintance. Maybe this time we’ll survive.

    Sincerely,
    What’s Left Of Me

    and so it went

    I should have taken a picture of tonight being perfect…

    But that would have inevitably canceled out how simple, and unexpected, and wonderfully, unintentional tonight was.

    So I wait for sleep, then wake up, then tell you lovely strangers that tonight was just perfect.

    and goodnight

    Best advice I ever received from my therapist:

    "Why not try bring angry instead of sad? No angry person ever jumped off of a bridge."

    she's a genius

    2 years later it still applies

    When you’re 34 years old, and three months into dating someone…

    There’s a wonderful mix of falling in love, and learning each other’s bullshit.

    It’s wonderful because when you’re 23 you don’t know how to analyze your OWN bullshit let alone someone else’s. So by the time you’ve broken a heart or two, or been broken yourself, you develop a strange skill you never knew to learn.

    You suddenly see red flags, or green lights. You take emotional inventory before you even have the new potential significant other’s birthday memorized. You’re keeping healthy score of every subtle difference, every little bickering over driving…every tiny little thing becomes something that somehow falls on one side or other of the pro and con list.

    Life is not a legal pad of pros and cons…and love is far from that simple. But when you’re almost 35, and you’re tired of hurting, and packing, and starting over, and retelling the same “life stories”, well, you start to develop a healthy system to decide who makes the cut.

    This is the best part…realizing that the person you’re falling for is actually making the cut.

    not for the faint of heart
