I have something that I have let go unresolved for too long, but I don’t know how best to reconnect with the past. It involves someone that I haven’t spoken to in years, and whom I ended on very bad terms with as a result. I was not able to handle the situation, and this resulted in me completely losing grip for a time. It was only through talking to ONE person that I was able to stabilize and deal with it enough to move on. It was the weakest I had ever been, and I cannot thank the one person enough for helping me…it was almost fate that we would talk.
I haven’t resolved it, though. I regained control and, being that I can handle a fair amount of stress when not fully tilted, I basically resumed life and moved past the part that crippled me.
I come asking the following: how does one reenter the life of someone they have wronged? I wasn’t willing to accept any blame and was too overwhelmed to rationally approach the situation, but through inaction I caused a gigantic rift. I don’t know that I can fill the void, but I will not have peace with this issue until I express this feeling of acceptance and say that I was wrong, and that I accept it and let go of it.
What do I say to that person? I have no one I want to talk to about this at the moment and I have resolve right now, I just need a little support.
