The girl, at the thing

The ex-girlfriend came to the thing. I was glad to see her, but nervous. I said I was sorry, and offered to be more specific, but she said she gets it.

Still, my five-year-old self is terrified I said or did something wrong.

It's okay, little me. It's okay.

Nope, you didn't say anything wrong. I had a pretty awful day yesterday, and just didn't want to start tearing up in public.

Don't be scared...not going to hurt you or be mean to you. Just trying to fit back in, if that's at all possible.

It was good to see you. You look a lot happier than you did a few months ago.

Thanks...

It is possible.

I hope your day today is better.

I've been hurt, probably more than necessary, because I'm not used to someone looking at a spot just over my left shoulder like I'm invisible or don't exist.

It was good to be seen.

You kept your energy grounded and remembered to breathe. That helped me do the same.

I am a lot happier than I was a few months ago. You deserved better than what I had to give then.

That's my usual response to uncomfortable situations - pretending that the person isn't there. I'm sorry if it hurt your feelings; it was just my way of noninteraction.

I tried to stay out of the loop as much as possible since seeing you made me uncomfortable and you - obviously - hurting. I'm back, I think...I stayed away until I was ready to see you again. You needed this group more than I did, and I had other islands to visit.
