A Good StartRecently I've been dealing with issues within my friendship with my exbf. We wanted to remain friends but I think something still held me back from forgiving him for the rocky past we had. I went through a period of flushing out the anger I felt for him by just letting myself feel it and not trying to run from it. I fully experienced it and in my anguish tried to end communications with him in my need to protect myself from someone who was hurting me. It seemed so easy for him to just move on and I didn't understand why I couldn't move on until I had this heart to heart talk with him. He really dug deep within himself to communicate feelings he had held back before and we have forgiven one another and now have the renewed promise of a brighter future. I felt like something in our relationship shifted and we are now finally becoming aware that we can let go of the past and move into the present. Now is a time of renewal and a stronger closer connection and clearer communication that we both are vowing to make from here on out. I feel so good to be building a more improved friendship connection. Sometimes it just is a matter of timing...all the necessary things had to happen. Life seems to just come around when it wants to, there's no controlling when it happens.
