From 2008. This was before we got married…
“He’d take you back in a minute,” the soldier said.
“You’ve to be kidding me. You think that? I don’t think you’re right.”
“Bullllllllshit! He’d take you back in a half a minute. One second, he’d take you back.”
“That is hard for me to believe.”
“It’s the truth. So would any other man who has ever known you for that matter.”
I shook my head. ‘That is a pretty spectacular thing to say. I don’t know how to believe that could be true.”
“It is true.”
“Why do they treat you like crap when you’re with them then?”
“Don’t know, P. I don’t know but I do know he’d take you back with no question.”
We got off the phone and it occurred to me he was probably right. I don’t care how this sounds. I just have pain. But I think this is common so I want to know about it.
If you are the type who treats good people / partners like crap until you force them out the door and regret it… why?
Why do you do it… and where is your Venus?
