“We always had our differences, but I never thought you were unkind. Self-inflicted or not, I’ve had a difficult year, but the most difficult part of all is seeing how you’ve changed.”
A lecture on kindness from the man who left me a year ago for his subordinate. Why does he think I’ve changed? Who caused me to change to an “unkind” person?
I think I’ll skip that lecture and throw the attempted guilt away.
Should I send him a sympathy card about his difficulty accepting the fact that I’ve “changed?” Not doing that either.
