To the girl at the skincare kiosk who gave me the free packet of lotion… It was great to meet you! Thank you so much for the free moisturizer sample, it’s good stuff. I can’t help but feel a little bad when I had to leave before you could sit me down for 10 minutes of “baggy eye” treatment. I can still see your pouty face as I walked away and it made me feel bad.
We had a 10 second relationship but I feel like I let your down. Please don’t make me out to be the bad guy. I’ll own my part in this but remember: if you don’t feel like a whole person going into this relationship it’s going to tear your apart when times get tough, and those times always come. For us it was at our 8th second anniversary. I felt suffocated. You needed something from me I wasn’t ready to give.
Get to that place where you’re a whole person. Think of where you’ll get your source of life from. I think you should consider Jesus instead of turning those unreasonable expectations on mere mortals.
Don’t think of me as the villain. You’re a powerful person! You’re only powerless when you give your power away. No one can take it from you. Not me not your boss or colleagues at the kiosk, no one.
Get healed, get whole. There will be others.
