After work this evening, I walked down to Kristie's office, as she was working late. This takes a good 45 minutes. We proceeded down King St, and decided to get some McDonalds at the corner of King & Bathurst. I told her that was my ex's neighbourhood, so if I suddenly started clenching my teeth, it probably meant the ex was around.

And lo and behold, when we came out of the restaurant, the ex was across the street. I expected to feel the old hurt, to feel angry, even to feel nervous...

Actually, I felt only pity.

I didn't even bother to tell Kristie about it. I figured it was having so little effect on me, why even bother to bring it up? Do I still harbour bad feelings about her? Would I still like some sort of Karmic realignment to befall her? Sure. I admit these flaws in my personality.

The nice thing is, though, that I know I can see her on the street and not feel angry, or sad, or anything really. I know that I've found someone that makes me happy, and I know I make her happy, and that I just don't have the time or energy to care about the ex anymore.

This is a good thing.

And her long hair looks dumb. (Damn, almost made it without pettiness. Add it to the personality flaws).

Right on. Moving on is the best feeling in the world. I just came face-to-face with this situation last night and can't say I've ever felt better.

Can't really write about it because this is the internet and you never know who is reading. Suffice to say, I'm over it.

So, good for you!

And McDonald's sounds good. I'm in the mood for grease...

Ah, I don't care who's reading. Unlike a lot of people, I have nothing to hide!

Yeah, but some things are better left unsaid/read.

funny about ex's - i just had a decent conversation with mine (on msn actually) and though my heart lept into my throat it was ok by the end.
i even offered to help his new lady love get her visa extended.
what is all this karmic re-evaluation about?
i have hurt about being replaced so quickly but i can't honestly wish loneliness on anyone.
we're all looking for the right love, it just takes some of us longer to find them.

Karmic reallignment due to the lies she told about me and the hell she put me through last year. Some things transpired, by her hand, which I did NOT deserve(which I won't go into detail about here, but I think I already told you about).

The world inevitably sorts it's shit out, and she'll get her universal come-uppance somehow.
