“Hey, it’s me again.

Sorry for calling. You haven’t answered my texts and I guess
I’m just hoping we’re okay.
Are we good?
Are you good? Shh, that was rhetorical.

I saw you across the street the other day. Did you see me?

Why didn’t you wave?

Do you still taste me in the back of your throat?

Listen, Babe,
I’m not trying to be a pest.
I know you asked for space, but that’s not how this works with you and me. You don’t call the shots. What do you think this is?

You answer when I speak to you.
Don’t you know?

There is no ghosting a body full of ghosts.” TC mark

Cut yourself some slack. One of the biggest regrets most people have about their 20s is that they didn’t enjoy them more. And I’m not talking about “buy more expensive dinners, take another trip to Thailand” type of enjoyment. I mean having the ability to take a deep breath and sip coffee in the morning knowing that you have done, and are doing, your best.

“These essays are slowly changing my life, as the title promises. As my friends’ birthday come along, they will all be receiving a copy of this wonderful book.” – Janie
