Viktor – #2

I got a message from Viktor today… He read my post about him and… I just… Well… He liked it. He actually liked it and thanked me for writing it. I know I copy and paste messages sometimes into my blog post, but this time it feels a little too personal to put his exact wording out there – which feels weird to say after every other personal thing I have already posted.

I must say, I was very impressed with his writing style and couldn’t help but think he should be the one to have a blog, lol.

Anyway, to explain the gist of it all: He told me he was nervous to read what I thought about him. Apparently, he always thought he had been an asshole in our relationship. He said that he even used our relationship as a benchmark of how not to be in subsequent relationships.

Wow.

I have never, ever thought of him as an asshole. Perhaps he was an asshole in his head, but he never displayed asshole tendencies to my face. It makes me a tad sad that he thought so poorly of his past self all these years. I honestly always felt bad, or like I was the jerk in the relationship, because I thought…knew…he would be good for me. I wanted to want him more, but I just didn’t have the feelings that were required.

He said he was impressed with my ability to remember the details. What can I say? I generally have a pretty good memory… then he thanked me for being so open about it all and giving him a new perspective on himself. He said this really helped him.

Wow.

And here I was nervous about how he’d take it and if he’d hate me for putting it all out there in the blogosphere.

  1. I occasionally write about people in my life and it’s amazing some of the responses. My parents usually share my blog to everyone they know because I have a few posts about them. Then, they are shocked about what I’ve taken from them out of life.
    It’s nice to hear other people’s thoughts about youself. It almost makes a person go “hmm so that’s what they really thought of me.”

    • It has been interesting, I was able to get a little insight from a few different people when I started my project – it’s crazy how some people read me like a book, and yet others viewed me so different than I viewed myself (in both good and bad ways)… Glad he was pleased with how I viewed him and how it was much more positive than he expected πŸ™‚
