My friend just broke up with me. But I do not feel to sad or upset over it. I felt like our relationship was dysfunctional. I tried to handle misunderstandings and concerns head on and maturely. But Z, my friend, I felt like lacked the practice of self-reflection when situations arose. For a while I felt uncomfortable by her requests and comments.
Part of me feels bad that she is unaware of an aspect of her personality that she could gain leaps and bounds by improving on. But I think she is unable to accept any type of constructive criticism.
I am not absolving myself of blame at all. She showed me things I need to work on and improve, but I feel like things stopped working. All I can hope is that she learns compassion and self-reflection.
You know things are over when you feel better with them being over. I feel A LOT better. I wish I could have recognized they were over instead of trying to salvage it. But that is a learning point for me. Ok, time to get ready for work.
