The Sweetie Chronicles

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~William Wordsworth

Ghosts

Breakups are always difficult, but you eventually move on and get over it. Even if it's a breakup that you initiated, it can still be hard to get over the passing of a relationship. Then there is that moment, maybe months or even years later, when you see them again, and it takes you by surprise.

I separated from my ex-husband two years ago and after he left for Arizona, I didn't see him again... until yesterday. And where I saw him was the most unpredictable place, really. A friend that works with my mother called her early yesterday morning to tell her that she had seen my ex on CNN. So then, my mom called my sister, who then called and texted me. The story about him was a good story, a sweet story about him and his dog. If it was anyone else in the world, I would think, "How sweet" and move on. Instead, it was just a weird experience, seeing him again.

It's funny how just seeing his face and hearing his voice seeped into my happiness a bit. It's as if he is a reminder of a past I don't want any part of anymore. I like the new place I am in these days, and I love my new life. I am definitely not going to dwell on this because in the big picture, it doesn't mean anything. I just thought I would mention it, because it was a little bit like seeing a ghost.
