Yesterday was a rough day. I wrote about what I would say to my friend/partner about him removing me from his life without warning.
By 12:30 yesterday I had an email from him giving me those reasons. I thought I could handle it. I thought getting closure would be it. But as I lay in a fancy hotel room my husband whisked me away to for the week to take my mind off it, I can’t stop thinking that the last time I saw my partner in April would be the last time.
I have so much to say to him. So much to explain. I want one more time to say goodbye. But that won’t happen. He says I betrayed his trust because I said something in passing to his wife. Something I didn’t know was a secret. When his wife asked me, did you know about X, I said yes and explained the conversation. She then went back and relayed it to him. How is that something I could have prevented? I believe in honesty, truth, and compassion.
I’m trying. I really am to let him go. But how do you so easily let someone go that you let in? That you trusted? That you cared for?
The pain I feel is real. I can only hold it in so much. I want to cry. I want to see him one more time to know that is the last time. I see things that I know he would find humorous but can’t send him. But I can’t.
So, I’m stuck faking it til I make it until the pain goes away. I just don’t know when that will be.
