I’ve dealt with many situations in the past where I’ve had to put myself out there, to make someone feel better about themselves, without getting any appreciation for what I’ve done for them. I agree with the familiar saying, “The grass is not always greener on the other side,” because it is saying that not everything you see, is necessarily better.
When I started working at my first job in the mall, I met one of the employees working there. We got along right away when we first started talking. I’ve thought to myself, “He seems sweet.” We exchanged numbers before leaving, and we said our goodbyes to each other. Later next week, we both decided to hang out outside of work.
We got to know each other a little bit more. We went to the park and played in the playground, like little 5 year olds. I felt that we were beginning to connect more by just hanging out. I was wondering if I was really developing feelings for this guy? Several weeks passed by, and I hadn’t heard from him. I was thinking to myself that he’s probably busy.
One night online, I saw a picture of him and his new girlfriend. I immediately began to cry, because he had told me that he wanted to be in a relationship with me, and that I was perfect for him. I was heartbroken. Why would someone do this? I have had my heart broken plenty of times, and I’ve been dealing with issues because of it. I wanted to confront to him about it, but I decided to just ignore him.
I’ve told some of my co-workers about the situation, and told me they didn’t want me to be around him, because he doesn’t seem like a nice guy. I was weary of their opinions about him at first, but in the end, I agreed. A few days go passed by, and I continued to ignore the situation between him and me.
I didn’t want it to impact me more since we work at the same location. I would see pictures of his girlfriend that he sends me. I always think that it’s somewhat rude for him to do that, as.
