        • I don’t know why this change has occurred, but he was my best friend, THE trusted person, and a solid rock in my life prior to us ever dating this time around
          • it doesn’t look like he ever will be again, unlike in the past – as much as this hurts
            • I will probably never be able to understand
              • I struggle to come to terms with this
  • OMT appointment this afternoon, after that

  • thankfully, Raven Squire was kind enough to spend time with me in person this evening to cheer me up
    • it was refreshing to have an organic conversation with someone that didn’t involve competing for the spotlight, cutting anyone off, or changing the subject to themselves
      • it flowed naturally without control on either side
      • best of all? he got along with and ran with Little Bear’s vibe
        • it’s not everyday you see my youngest son actually chill the fuck out with someone

Today’s Feelings

  • mildly stressed that I’m so far behind my novel’s word count goals

Notes

  • today’s word count goal: 16,548
  • today’s word count: 6,942
  • today’s novel total: 21,497
  • I guess I’ve gone back to being invisible in Tuxedo Cat’s father’s book
    • I don’t know when I can and can’t reach out to him anymore
      • he’s ALWAYS busy
      • the last time I spent time with him in person was when he was working on my car and he even cut me off when I tried to talk to him about a book I was reading
        • he had never done that to me before – ever
        • he had never said to me that he wasn’t interested or that he didn’t want to listen to what I had to say
        • and no, the time he worked on my car before that he WAS willing to talk to me about whatever – and we did
        • and this isn’t the only time when this has happened
        • so of course I end up complaining about it and then we spiral into hashing out the past as I try to prove that this is a repeated pattern that’s been going on
      • so how am I supposed to feel safe to talk to him when he has repeatedly made it clear that he doesn’t want to hear anything I have to say?
      • why do I want to talk to someone who’s auto response is, “I don’t want to talk about it,” without even realizing that I was talking about a book, a movie, or the kids?
      • or if it’s online, I message and he just blows me over and talks about something else like I didn’t even say anything most of the time unless it is about the kids – yesterday was a rare exception
        • but I’m the one that is so hard to talk to and I’m the one that is completely at fault here
          • I honestly don’t know why I am trying anymore
            • all I can do is match his effort, I guess
