Nancy is,without a doubt,the one that got away.You know how they say you live and learn?Well,the same be could be said about loving—you love and you learn.
As I am fresh out of a turbulent relationship and breakup,I keep thinking back on all of my past relationships,looking for my unhealthy patterns.
I've told you all about the shrink,now let me tell you about Nancy.She's a TV producer and from the moment we met,our chemistry was magical.(Sound familiar?) Never have I known someone so intelligent,sexy,driven and fun to be around.She's a southern belle with a magnetic personality.
I was already teaching when we met and was quickly drawn into her fast-lane lifestyle.She knows everyone in Hollywood and as long as I was with her,doors kept opening.All of the parties and exciting people were very fun,but it took its toll on little ol' Mr.C.Caught up in a scene that was so far from my day-to-day,I was enchanted but knew it wasn't for me.Looking back,I wish I could have been more mature.I took for granted how rare the type of love Nancy and I shared was.I was too quick to turn my back on a woman that truly loved me.
Nancy is in New York now,producing for a high-profile,network morning show.I am so proud of her and miss her very much.She's the best and deserves all the happiness in the world.And who knows?Maybe our paths will cross again and we can live happily ever after.
I know I'm not the only one who ponders lost opportunities or the one that got away.How do you guys make sure that you love and learn and not just continue the same unhealthy patterns?Let me know,I'm taking notes.
