I never though the first conversation I'd have with my ex boyfriend in almost a year and a half would be regarding the circumstances in which it did. That boy, still telling me the most positive things since we broke up in 2008.
When you don't have a father to tell you these things, the only other man who's seen you at your worst and still loved you for it is a good compensation.
"You deserve nothing but the best. You sound really good, like you know what you want. These are the most auspicious years of our lives. If you haven't found your gem, or someone who knows your worth, you know what you need to do."
