To An Ex

#5 What would you say to an ex?

I have nothing bad to say to any of my ex’s at this point in my life. When I was in my twenties I had a lot of bad things to say to my ex’s. There was the frat guy ex I used to say he had no balls how he attempted to just break up with me by leaving all my things at the foot of the bed when I stopped by his apartment. My summer fling ex I used to say he was in denial that all along he really liked me but he was too chicken shit to deal with it.

In regards to my past relationships I used to be really bitter and really really angry. Often at that age these things don’t end well, there is no maturity or dignity in them. I was very sensitive and it was all really hard for me to deal with. That is all in the past now though, I’ve truly moved on.

I will admit though I can still feel the pain and the anger I felt back then when I listen to an Alanis or Fiona song but the rage is long gone. I think the moment I met Manly Man those feelings just washed away. I honestly never thought they’d go away, I thought they’d infect me for the rest of my life. It’s very freeing to let old hurt feelings go and just appreciate that they got you to be the person you are today.

    I used to have bad things to say to exes, too. But maturity and happiness with the man I married have gotten rid of the desire to get back at those who hurt me in the past. So now, I honestly just want to tell them that I hope they are as happy as I am.

    Bu I still like listening to Alanis’ songs that were full of angst. I like Alanis.

      I genuinely hope all my ex’s are happy and I think most of them feel the same for me. I still love angst songs as well, I will forever sing You Outta Know with the pure bitterness of a woman scorned, it’s the only way to sing it.

    There’s only one sort-of-ex-who-never-really-was-current I’d have anything to say to: our friendship ended badly and I miss him.
