Tom was rude to me again today. I thought I’d be kind and see if he wanted to pick Annie up from school with me. He got angry over the silliest thing, bared his teeth at me like a dog, snatched a piece of paper out of my hand and practically spat his words at me, but that’s a good thing. It confirms to me that my decision was absolutely 100% the right one. He simply is not a nice person and I don’t need that anymore.
Tonight I reminded myself that I have to let go of Tom once and for all. I told myself that I have now experienced pain, anger, being treated selfishly and a whole host of other things and that I wanted some new lessons to learn, some kinder ones. I want to be open to experience something new now and the only way to do it was to really let him go. We’re done.
