i have to rewatch bojack now

it makes me sad to talk to you. it hovers over my head and then weighs down in my chest. it feels so sterile compared to how we talked nearly a year ago: just tv shows, nothing of our actual lives, no real questions to be found. and i have no desire to hear about your girlfriend.

i gave a lot of myself to you, in a very strange, roundabout way.

and now this boy i'm talking to will read my messages and not actually respond to anything i said, just move on to what he actually wants to talk about.

kind of like you did.

and i don't have the ability or the patience or the desire to go through any of this again.

a lot of things were tied up with you: the possibility of staying, of mastering a language, of living an "exciting" life.

but none of those are my reality.

and that's okay.

i'll answer you when you message me. but i am done reaching out, putting myself out there to be ignored, only responded to in the briefest of windows when it is convenient for you.

i gave too much of myself too quickly before it made sense.

we live and we learn.
