Well, glad that I’m still in my salad days.

Wait, I’m not drunk.

Not enough people read the EU.

I’m as close to drunk as I get, meaning a bottle of cider.
OOOoooOoOOOOoooOOOOOOOO!

Initiating self-destruct countdown…

I want to move on, but the woman remains on the brain 24/7.

Dammit – if only I was a successful filmmaker. Everything would be better then. She’d have to acknowledge my existence then in spite of herself – you can’t ignore Kubrick regardless of how cold his style leaves you – and I’d be certainly happier as a result.

Sorry. I was durnk at the time.

Of course, I’m durnk again today. I promise to be less obsessive today, though. Besides, this is the last day I get to be durnk until next month; I may as well express my last bout of durnkeness before the dry spell in a more happy-go-lucky fashion.

My cat loves me more than any body else I think. She’s so cute. She was raised by dogs so she follows you around like a dog, even outside. And when you first come home she comes to see you like a dog would. It’s fucking adorable.

Alcohol doesn’t even help anymore. Only it’s absence hurts. I’ve actually gotten sick of it. I’ve honestly drank so much of all different kinds of alcohol that I hate all of it. I only drink hard alcohol anymore so that I can relax and be done with it quickly.

No, it’s a girl he’s been in love with for the last 15 years or so. One time he posted her name and a picture but he edited the posts and ever since has only referred to her as D_____.

How could the internet fill you with false hope? Not to mention, 2008 was several years ago.

It promised the possibility of reconnection VIA Facebook.

Exactly. It was in the summer of '08 that I actively decided to try putting her behind me and moving on. Dozens of life’s subsequent little disappointments combined with strong nostalgia for the past ended up making that too hard for me in the end.

I’m assuming their was no reconnection. Facebook is rarely an effective form of communication on serious subjects.

No, no reconnection. I didn’t get the chance to even send a message to her before she blocked me. I suppose I shouldn’t hold it against her, though; I was deeply obsessed with her back in high school, and combine that with the religious phase I going through at the time, I said and did too many stupid, ill-thought-out things which wouldn’t leave anyone with warm memories of me.

I just wish I could let her know that I’ve grown some self-awareness over the last twelve years and that I realize now how inappropriate my behaviour towards her was back then. I want her to see me as a human being – an incredibly flawed human being, yes, but still a human being – and not as some sort of deranged boogeyman lurking in the shadows. I want to bury the hatchet between us and gain some real closure.

That’s understandable. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way. Of the countless people I’ve gone separate ways with, never to see them again, I can only think of a few in which we acknowledged that we were parting for all time.

Closure is a pretty BS notion, to be honest. People always talk about how, if they just had some closure, things would be better. But that’s not usually the case, because generally, the people who are interested that concept thing are people who will use whatever the “closure” entails (be it one last talk, or one last email, or one last whatever the situation calls for) as a glimmer of hope to continue not moving on.

If you see this person again and they acknowledge that you’ve changed and are a better person now, but still want nothing to do with you, are you any more likely to say “well that’s good, I feel better now”? Be honest with yourself.

The thing is, this person has ceased to be a real person in your mind. You’ve built a person-like construct based on rose-tinted memories, taken a snapshot of a person at a certain time in the world and your life and theirs and taped it to a mannequin. The reality is that they’re no longer the same person they were when you knew them, the same as you aren’t.

Point being: don’t look for closure from someone else, because you probably won’t find it. You’ll put your life on hold for years and years until that day comes (if it does) after which, you’ll move the goalposts down the field for the next few years, rinse and repeat. Accept the past (and your past) for what it was and is and continue moving forward. Find closure in yourself, vow “never again”, learn your lesson, whatever you need to do as long as you continue moving forward for yourself, because you only grow when you move forward.

Maybe I sound like a cunt, and maybe I’m speaking to myself more than you, but it’s the truth.
