last night i broke my rule: i called him. he's the one who said that he wanted to remain friends and i was the one who wasn't sure about the whole friends bit. of course, it had to be me who made the call. it left me with a horrible pit in my belly and an acrid taste in my mouth. it was tense and i ended up crying. thankfully my phone died and the conversation ended before things could get even worse.
why do i put myself through the torture? why do i want to know all about him and his new girlfriend? can i be such a masochist? i guess i just keep waiting for cracks in their relationship. how can he love her more? i keep hoping that he will realize his mistake and come back to me.
believe me, i am completely aware of how pathetic i am. people keep telling me what a strong person i am. ha! if only they could see me now as the tears run down my face and i reach for another handful of chips.
