isn’t it funny…

…how nothing is ever quite as simple as it seems?

I spoke on the phone for an hour with someone who, despite all our turmoil for the past 4 1/2 years of knowing one another, still gets me better than most. We have both changed immensely since we broke up, and hadn’t heard each other’s voices in months…still…he knows the core of me better than almost anyone on the planet.

But we were able to talk…as friends. Without baggage, without hurt feelings or raging emotions. Hell, he even gave me something resembling dating advice (though it pained him to do it).

Sometimes when the world is getting you down, you just need to talk to someone who gets you.  Who, stripped away of everything else, knows who you are.

It will probably be awhile before we talk again.  It was a big step, and kinda out of left field.  But it happened.

I missed my friend. And talking to him helped.  A lot.

Nothing is ever as simple as it seems.
