I unfollowed and blocked him off instagram and gave a blocking from my news-feed on facebook. Finally, I was ready to do it.
I was telling my friend just now, which I didn't really realize or say out loud till I spoke to her. I thought I could handle it. I thought I could handle us being cool. But I wasn't handling it. Every time we rarely spoke I was being hopeful and sucking up being in the friendzone the whole time. And that just wasn't healthy.
I've let go of that. My sanity and emotional stability is so so much more important.
