i was looking through an old disk for some poems i wrote and found a letter i wrote to my ex, roy. of course i decided to read the letter and it brought back lots of memories that i probably didn't want to dredge up. it's interesting though to read it and see how much i've changed but that there are core things about myself that haven't, and i'm glad for that. i wrote this in '97: "Being alone makes you realize how rich and blessed you are." it made me smile to read that because
i'm glad i've understood that for so long, that there's absolutely nothing wrong with being alone. no one needs another person to complete them and it's unfortunate to me that people go through life believing they'll never be truly happy unless they're with someone else. i think you can never be truly happy until you're ok with yourself, because, it's good to know when you can't count on anyone else you can count on yourself.
