I take it all back

Life with Bob Clougherty

Bob –

I wish that I could take back everything good, kind, decent, meaningful, loving, and fun that I ever taught you.

Showing appreciation. Thoughtfulness.

All of the basics.

You didn’t even know to push in your chair when you got up from the table.

Cards, gifts, souvenirs, holidays, traditions, vacations, road trips, morning sex, celebrations, expressions of appreciation…

My family…My friends…Your family…

Let’s not forget fashion sense…

All of it.

You didn’t deserve any of it.

And I didn’t deserve what you did to me.

It’s true: Damaged people damage people.

And you…damaged me.
