'What do you want to achieve from this?' my therapist replied to me during our first session last week when I asked how do I know when I have had enough.
This made me think, there are several factors really;
1 - To be able to control my emotions
(I would hate to be an emotional mess if I ever do run into the lobster one day. I have too much pride to give anything away. I don't want him to know how much he has hurt me and how that has affected me)
2 - To stop dwelling on the past
3 - To just generally get over it and move on.
So how do you achieve this? I am yet to figure it out, and hope we will work through on this in this weeks session.
Last week we acknowledged a few things such as I never once mentioned the 'L' word. Love. I am not sure if I ever was in 'love' with him. I would never say that word due to the fear of being rejected. But maybe I did?
I have also come to face the fact that, yes it really has hurt and upset me and that it is okay to feel this way. It is better to let it out rather than bury it.
The final thing was that, I built him up to be this person that he wasn't and to sum it up I was potentially in love with a person that never existed. He is not the person I thought he was or made him out to be.
I am intrigued to see how we move on from here now, and interested in what she has to say this week.
In other news, my tinder date blew me out. I wasn't too fussed, but still a little bit disappointed.
I have also been spending time with my friend who has her own lobster situation with a bad apple. I can see myself in her and history repeating itself and she knows this too.
The sad thing is watching her makes me miss my lobster, to see how happy and excited it makes her when she see's or speaks to him.
I need some more dates.
