Oh yes...I was right in all these thoughts, all the reading between the lines, the cues, the tones, the body language, the attitude.Doubt in myself...this morning I sit with it and know that at some point I will return to the conversation to be sure I do not owe an apology for two-stepping my way to goodbye due to triggers from the cowardly lion who put them there. 
We truly hate the reminders, we loathe thinking of that person, let alone diving in to memories to deal and heal. We sit in teeth clenching fortitude and wait for revelation, for truth as grace and mercy sit on each shoulder in comfort, in encouragement.

Psalm 31:6 "I will trust in the Lord.
I will be glad and rejoice in your love, 
  for you saw my affliction
  and knew the anguish of my soul.
You have not handed me over to the enemy
 but have set my feet in a spacious place."
Truth comes if we look closely enough...if we peer past our hopes, our dreams, our excitement...if we take a breath and sit with that inner child, that pieced-back-together heart screaming out warnings of familiarity in the new person...we sit and worry about judging, about passing judgements unworthy of them or us....oh no my dear lost ones, this is not judgement, no no. It is perception gained from experience, it is a deep understanding of the works of the human mind, heart and spirit.

Oh hell yes, we'd love to bury that crap...ten feet down with no hope of ever reviving...love to forget the person involved and the feelings they worked on, built on, and ultimately tore down....be happy to dash that from the memory banks, strip those scars away to reveal new flesh, whole and healed....
Unfortunately the brain and heart do not deal in forgetting for long...they do not deal in dismissing trauma nor burying it never to be seen or spoken of again.
