My ex’s birthday was yesterday, and as we have a bunch of mutual Facebook friends, it was inevitable I’d be reminded of it.
In years past, I would have stalked his profile out of morbid curiosity. Not this year, though, because I honestly don’t care. I never thought total apathy would be such a good feeling, but it truly is.
I can also say with certainty, finally, that I’m grateful we didn’t end up together. I never thought I’d get to this place, and I didn’t expect this revelation to sneak up on me out of the blue.
I’m glad it did.
