Got an e-mail from my brother this week - first contact he's made with me in over a year. He just wanted to make sure I knew he was going to be in town soon and wants to see my Son (not me mind you - but my son). I'm DF'd - he's an elder.
Do you know what was so great about this e-mail? What was great was how I felt...... I didn't care.
I didn't get angry, or sad, or search for the right words to use in the chance that maybe, just maybe THIS time I could get through to him. I just didn't care - and so I deleted it.
It took a long time to get here - but man does this freedom feel good!
