So at work yesterday just before I left for my other job, my mom tries to reach me after not speaking for over a year since her mom (my grandmother) passed away. Ultimately she said she had been afraid to tell me sooner, was sorry for her mistakes, and doesn’t believe anymore that I stole anything. Her husband (not my dad btw) passed away suddenly last fall and her last dog has been sick for a year and will be put down today. I feel bad for her and she feels bad for what I’ve been through too. I also braved it and asked the guy I like if he hates me. Still think he might like to ignore the fact that I like him, but he doesn’t hate me. He may be chasing girls but I think I may be the only constant in his life and the only one that would be there for him if shit went down. I wish he’d see that and count my loyalty for something someday. Why does it all have to be so hard?
