What really happened: He sent me a video of Aubrey Marcus and Whitney announcing their breakup.

What I told myself it meant: He has let me go.  He’s cool with whatever while I’m a codependent baby.  He isn’t, nor has he ever really been, in it for a long haul.  Not committed.

What really happened:  He balked, pushed back and got grumpy when I asked if he could come by and let Grey out while I was in Portland.

What I told myself it meant: There is no space for me to be inconvenient in his life.  That we have a shallow relationship.  That he would have done it for a friend, but because it was me it’s a chore.
