So this post will be a little different from the norm, as I don’t really like writing about my personal life. But I learned today that my most recent ex has moved on with someone who had claimed to be my friend. We haven’t talked in awhile, but I figured girl code still applied to ex’s, especially four-year-relationship ones.
Then I started thinking of all the conversations I’d had with her. And I realized that our entire “friendship,” she’d been biding her time waiting for us to break up.
Not that I care much at this point. I’m happier now than I’ve been in years, so really they can have each other. It simply goes to show that you can only trust your instincts about people, not the people themselves. I knew from the start that my ex was a bad idea. He’d cheated on me within the first week and lied about it, for crying out loud. But I stuck with him anyway.
And I felt from the moment I’d begun talking to her that she was into him. But I trusted her word that she only saw him as a friend, despite the fact that the day they’d met she’d pushed him to the ground (by knifepoint, apparently) and started making out with him.
…They really are perfect for each other, aren’t they? =/
Anyway, lately I’ve been working on following my instincts more, and today has affirmed how important they are. We can choose to be blind to so many things, but in the end, the truth always comes to light. So from now on I listen to my intuition; that’s really the only trustworthy thing we have.
