It was your day…as ChiRod and I sat at the bar having some adult time I asked her if I should even acknowledge you on this day.
She told me to be the bigger person and simply make a brief phone call and keep on moving.
I did just that. In the moments of hearing your voice I knew I had done the right thing making that call. You fell over yourself trying to apologize trying to get me to believe you didn’t mean what you had written. I was so calm and sure of who I have become I simply repeated birthday wishes as you asked about the family and my life now.
Oh now you want to know? Really? Truly? I just had to smile because while many of your words I had heard before. I am no longer THAT person. This is who I strived to be all along. She is finally here, the me that is safe from the heartache of you.
As I hung up the phone it wasn’t lost on me that you seem realize it ain’t you anymore…it’s me. All me.
