Text Message from an Unknown Number


Crystal Clear

When your ex after three years text you and says she had a dream about you last night, exactly what do you do? Do you ask back what the dream was all about? Or do you ignore the text message and pretend it never happened at all? In my case, I did exactly neither.

---

At the event of being 25, I realise that you can live without certain people. Because, no matter how ugly it sounds, you are really better off without them. You can call it whatever it is - relationship, friendship, contacts, mere association - well, sometimes it is indeed a waste of your God-given-time.

(Because when someone breaks your heart/your soul/your existence and was never truly sorry, you can indeed forget. But truly never forgive.)

---

So what do you do when your ex after three years text you and says she had a dream about you last night? Well, in my case, I texted back that I was busy and in a meeting. And then deleted her message in the Inbox. And then deleted my response in the Outbox. And continued living with the ones I want, need, love, trust and am truly happy with.

I'd text her back, saying: 'Yeah, and that's how I'm going to reappear in your life from now on - only in your dreams, baby!'.

Mudcake, you shouldn't have even replied back as if she were non-existent! Like you said, THERE are DEFINITELY some people that we CAN LIVE WITHOUT. Happy Easter weekend!

Yes its true ! You can live with without certain pople. Theres no use having to many friends as you grow older and mature . I call them 'accessories' friends/people. As time goes you evaluate your friends and trust me on this its only worth to 'concentrate' to the small few who actually truly have the time for you. But I think you shd hv asked her coz I have had dreams abt past 'jadi tak jadi ' ppl tho they did not turn into relationships. These things or rather dreams do happen.
Ps : I love my anon status on yr blog !

pugly :

babe, you should be my copywriter. what genius! ;)

9 :

i like to think so too man.

shobshob :

bro, this post does come across harsh, but please do not think that i hate her. hate is such a strong word for me, which i often associate with disease, discrimination and racism...

i don't hate her. i just haven't fully forgiven her thats all...

Dear Muddy,
I've been a *fan * of yours for the past few months and it's about time you put the *Anonymous* identity. Keep up with your blog and please don't stop blogging like others. It's hard to find good ones like yours. :)

PS:- I like the way you handle things. It's simple, mature & funny thing to do!

Huii ... Muddy got `peminat' :-)

Anyways, I don't think hiring me as your copywriter would be such a good idea. It could get you into all sorts of trouble :-) `Sarcasm' is my middle name after all.

Don't you think you are beter off without her? Do you think in your present life you see your self with her or want to be with her ? If so, forgive and forget. You are at a much happier place judging by yr entries. Be friends if not civil. Think it took her guts to text you.

Mudster,
I would actually ask back something like "did I do something naughty?" or maybe "did I tell you to bugger off?"

After that I guess I'll do the decent thing. Delete the messages and get on with my life.

Good on u Muddy, what u did was really classy... but I would have texted her back ... "lame... really lame!". I am a lot less classy that way...

nynakyle :

wow, i am deeply flattered by your comment. happy to know that my writings influential to you, whether it makes you happy or ponder. :) hope you start a blog yourself too.

pugly :

hahaha i think sarcasm is basically honesty with wit. at the right place and moment, it can be quite funny actually. ;P

chi :

hehehe thanks for calling me a nice guy. i think that's a really big compliment. :) sorry about missing last "meeting". had an event that night, so next time k.

anon :

suffice to say, i have moved on quite well actually. this is indeed my way of moving on. forgive and forget is ideally what i want to do, but my version seems to be working quite fine for me.

giving credit for guts is a noble thing to do. but for me, i rather not bother.

the kimster :

hahaha your suggestions are in the KIV. will consider when faced in the same situation again. :P

nony :

hahahah never really considered my ways as classy, but thanks a bunch for thinking it is. ;)
