A couple of weeks ago during my birthday i received a lot of greetings from family, friends and absentee lovers (i'll have another post for them). Some greeted personally, some thru text messages and phone calls and more was thru Facebook.
I was feeling so special and happy until i eyed on ex's post on my wall. We had no communication after we broke up some years ago, but there it was... an unexpected greeting. I replied with a simple 'Thank you' as i did to the rest of the well wishers.
Why was there a need for him to do that? I can only assume. Maybe because we share the same circle of friends who have started asking if we had issues with each other (we're both in the closet and haven't told anyone in the circle about us being together, or how the relationship ended badly. And they surely noticed how we became cold to each other all of a sudden.) so him not greeting me might pave way to a lot more questioning. Or it could be that he really means well and wanted to make friends with me.
As for me, anger is gone, there's no more bitterness, but being friends with him would be the last thing i want on this earth! I just don't want anything from him.
However, a friend reminded me that it would be his birthday tomorrow. Now I feel obligated to send him my greetings! Should I greet him just for the sake (so friends would dismiss the thought of us having issues) or should i just be true to myself and ignore his birthday?! After all, he doesn't exist in my world anymore.
