It's interesting to me to be sitting here almost a year later and have Triangle not really affect me. Oh, sure, I was upset when he got engaged, but I recently looked at his engagement pictures (on Facebook, of course - where else?) and they didn't bother me. At all. He looked happy, they seemed well suited for each other, and somehow my heart let him go. Just like that. Now, considering I never get over anyone (what?!!? I'm completely shocked by that!), this was huge. And, I can look back and see what being with him taught me, what I was meant to learn from our brief relationship, and be grateful for our time together. Yes, that's right, I said grateful. Not bitter. Not enraged. Not confused. Grateful and happy.
So, I'm trying to apply the same logic (who, me? Logical?) to my other relationships - new, old, or ongoing. What was I meant to learn? How can we best help each other? This way, perhaps I can realize that every person I meet isn't my TLF and meant to be with forever. Perhaps my little heart will stop hoarding people, places, and memories and give me a moment of peace? I'm not sure, but I'd like to think it's possible. If it could happen with Triangle, it can happen with anyone, right?
