In June, 2017, I wrote that I had been on the receiving end of the cruel act of ghosting and was asked recently if the situation behind the ghosting had been resolved. Almost two years on and no, it hasn’t. I’ve hesitated about commenting further here about what happened to me and, ultimately, have decided not to. However, I think that by sharing a few of my realisations from the last two years, I might help someone in a similar situation.
Don’t let yesterday take up too much of tomorrow.
Nothing changes if nothing changes.
Words have power, use them wisely.
I’m not responsible for other people’s memories.
Some people will hurt you and then act like you hurt them.
My truth may never match your truth. On matters both big and small, sometimes accounts of the same event differ.
And sometimes, you come across a quotation that sums up your feelings in just 22 words: “It’s hard to turn the page when you know someone won’t be in the next chapter, but the story must go on.” (Thomas Wilder)
