I had a talk with my mom about it and she’s always honest. She said, “You never should have broken things off in the first place. That’s why I always ask you guys if your sisters are happy. He made you happy and you pushed him away.”
He should have said ‘no.’
As in “No I won’t let you do this.” Or “No, just sleep on it and we’ll talk in the morning.”
This Type A personality of mine just isn’t working out so well for me.
