As a Phoenix Rising Declares 2013 to be The Year of Letting Go
always a mistake. It was someone I hadn’t met in person, but had talked on the phone with once several months ago. during that phonecall i determined that it wouldn’t be a good idea to meet. We were sort of a lit match to oil in a terrible way. Contrary opinions and values and beliefs about life. It was stressful simply listening to him talk. When I shared a different point of view he exploded and yelled and slammed the phone down. Very disturbing.
I didn’t know who it was when we first spoke last night, and then when he said a bit more about himself I did know, very clearly, who it was. When he asked why we hadn’t met I said we hadn’t gotten along in our last conversation. He didn’t remember it. I was polite and listened to him. I was careful to only say supportive things and to stay away from voicing contrary to his thoughts. I managed to say good-bye and after several delays to that I finally managed to end the conversation.
A blocked number called tonight, but didn’t leave a voicemail. I went on to the internet when he had last messaged me to respond back. When I hit “reply” I got a message that he had blocked me. I think its because his call wasn’t answered tonight. I am so grateful I am blocked. I am so grateful I tried to be polite and am now relieved of having to do so any longer. I don’t even mind or think its insulting that I am blocked. I just think he’s a crazy person and I am glad his temper ended the situation before I had to.
