So, was talking with someone last night and he had the idea that since he didn't know much about me, that I could create a new me - whatever I wanted. Now, I wouldn't do a huge lie or anything, but what I can do is choose who I define myself as. So rather than oppressed, I learned a lot about myself. And things like that. I'll try it out. It helps me to get rid of horrible thought patterns.
I've been meaning to note that I had a conversation with a guy who was returning my cooler (long story). I mentioned that M had moved out (not sure why I did since I didn't know the guy really) and that we still got along. He remarked that it seemed to him that if you can get along with someone after you break up, then couldn't you have made it work? Wow. I honestly have not ever heard that perspective. Not saying it's bad... just not for me. What do you think?
