have you ever noticed the people from your past don’t stay in your past? most especially those you wish to never see or speak to again? the ones who seem to creep up from time to time are the very ones who hurt you the most, took advantage, spit you out on the curb… and then down the road, they return. i have a hard time with wanting to forget and trust that i wouldn’t be hurt again. even though my life situation is very different now, i hesitate to trust, i hesitate to speak with or encourage in any way a person who has hurt me so deeply.
