Music Fridays: Somebody that I used to know

I’m almost afraid to share my pick for this week’s music post. I was going to go a different route and share something new, but then this song sort of worked its way out of my subconscious. I say that I’m almost afraid to share it because I don’t want you to think that I’m still spending too much time thinking about the past, that I’m dwelling or not letting go. But after accidentally learning some news about this “somebody that I used to know” this is how I’m feeling. It’s a feeling of disappointment — disappointment with who this person has become, or maybe always was. I’m disappointed they didn’t have the courage to be honest with me, to have faith that I could handle the truth, to have enough respect for me to give me that.

Do I wish them well? Yes, I do. In the end, I want us all to be happy. I’m happy with my new life and I want the same for them. But as we’ve already established, a no-contact policy works best for all of us so I will keep these wishes to myself.

I could probably have gone with Taylor Swift’s “I bet you think about me” but, honestly, I don’t think it’s true in this case. The video’s pretty good though, so I’ll throw that one in as a bonus entry.

Sometimes I think I could write a Taylor-like song about my past relationships.
