It's funny how time can change your appearance as well as your perspective.
That guy that seemed so funny, smart, and sexy years ago suddenly looks a bit crazy, self-absorbed, and obsessive. His "quirkiness" has transcended into "creepiness."
Perhaps he's really changed for the worse. Maybe the breakup ruined him and now he's a different person than the one you fell in love with.
Or maybe, he was always that guy.
That guy who didn't deserve you.
That guy you made excuses for.
That guy who broke your heart.
No matter how far into the past we're exploring...
Our evaluations are always subjective to where we are in the present.
And so, as now feels better and better, then looks less and less appealing.
But I wonder...
If we begin to second guess our previous decisions, then where did all the good from that past relationship go?
Because it sometimes seems as though the more we value ourselves...
The more we re-evaluate the past.
