So Ex’s mother is leaving tomorrow. I didn’t feel comfortable calling her – not even sure why, as I just saw her on Saturday and had a great time together, so I just e-mailed wishing her a safe trip.
When she arrived here 3 weeks ago, she was under the impression that all was fine that Ex and I were still together even though I had moved. She was under that impression because he said that to her.
I have no idea why he would mislead her this way. But one day 2 weeks ago I made to sure to let her know some of what went on.
I don’t expect her to believe everything I said. I know how most mothers are with their sons. My mother is the same way with my brother. They put them in a pedestal and refuse to believe anything else.
But anyway, it just pains me to have the relationship I had with her change. I love her and treated her the same as I treat my mother – with respect and kindness. When she arrived she was talking about my spending a weekend in June with her for a girl’s weekend. She hasn’t said anything now. I also didn’t bring it up.
Ex is bound to be introducing her to a new girlfriend – if he didn’t already do so. So,I think it is unfair of me to try to still be in her life. Nothing has changed as far as my love for her, but as I am learning, sometimes you have to learn to love from afar.
I guess this is a great chance for learning. Learn to detach from things and people.
