I had my performance review today. I always called you immediately after talking to Sam and told you what she said. You always told me you were proud of me, and of course, excited when there was any possibility of me getting a raise in my future and our circumstances improving as they have been in the past few years.
I always had you there rooting me on. I miss that. Of course, you know I have family and friends who are there for me, but you were different. You and I were a team. You and I were one.
I want to call you now and tell you everything that’s happening. I want to hear your encouragement, your advice, and your ideas. I want the closeness that we had.
I’m trying to find a substitute for each void that’s in my life now. I can work and drive and cook and take out the garbage. I have groceries delivered! (LOL – You would hate that!) I have friends to go to movies with me. I’m back on the trivia team without you.
I can do this. I can be a solo act again. But most of all, I miss the connectedness I had with you. I miss my other half.
I love you.
