Anybody remember the boy I told you about? Patrick?
The one that got away with crushing me and breaking my heart?
If you don’t remember or need a refresher course go read about him here and I’ll wait.
After writing that I realized that I’m not alone in the unfinished business department. An awful lot of you have boyfriends who hold a strong hold on your hearts. Stronger than they should have.
Well, I called him.
I called my unfinished business.
I called Patrick.
I was looking for closure.
What I found was a whole lot of nervous energy and twitchyness.
He’s engaged. Lives in a house. Has a job and three dogs.
He’s incredibly normal. (And he may even be reading this…HI IF YOU ARE.)
Nothing like what I had built him up to be in my head after all these years.
Truthfully? I’m kinda disappointed.
But incredibly relieved.
My heart rate no longer quickens and my stomach no longer drops at the thought of him. In fact, he never even crosses my mind anymore. So much so that I just barely remembered to write this and I talked to him over two weeks ago.
Kinda anti-climatic huh?
It’s life as usual.
Only now with closure and a lot less baggage.
