RECONNECTING - A SHORT AS-IF PREP MONOLOGUE. WHICH TACTICS COULD YOU USE?
I don’t care what happened.
I don’t care who you are now or I. You were once my friend. You once knew me. You can’t even begin to imagine how much you’ve hurt me.
I hope you’re pleased. Is this what you wanted? To “win”? Well fine. You win. I don’t even know the game but well done to you. You broke my heart. Has it made you satisfied? Do you want more or did you achieve what you intended? To ruin possibly one of the happiest moments in my life? I don’t care what petty shit went down. I would never do that to you. To paint such a picture.
You haven’t just hurt me.
Still enjoying the taste of winning? You want to rebuild bridges? It’s always been possible. But yet you surprise me more and more to the point of disbelief. I by no means paint myself as innocent in any of the past quibbles. You actually misread so much of what I said and took it in the worst way possible, ways in which I never intended. And I suppose I should have set you straight and explained but I was mad at you. And I was hurt that you jumped to the worst conclusion possible. What did I do that hurt you so much??
I don’t know how to fix this. All I wanted was some time away from it all. I’ve had enough this year and finally found something that gave me so much to look toward the future. I don’t blame you wholly.
But you know what you did. You placed me as a doubt. As a bad person. I try to protect the people I love, the people I care about and care about me. I left you and your life alone. Why did you have to keep impacting on mine. I don’t understand. Guess it’s done now. That moment that can never come again.
So I’m done.
I’m done with blame
I’m done with fighting
We have separate lives? Fine. Then that’s what we do. And let it be that, just that. Please no more.
I’m not doing anything to you.
