He sat at the table. He quickly tugged at his shirt cuff. Tucked an escaped curl behind his ear.
He glanced down. Two cups, identical, facing one another.
Should he go get another cup?
No, procrastination, wouldn’t help.
This was going to be harder than he thought, putting himself out there.
He was more of a keep-it-to-yourself than a heart-on-your-sleeve type guy.
Still, he knew he had to do this. It was time.
“I need to start this with an apology. I’ve neglected you…. a lot. I’ve suppressed my feelings. I’ve often forgotten about you and put others above your own. I know it’s got to stop. I am going to take steps towards that. This year, you will be a priority. I know it’s not going to be easy, but I’m determined.”
He looked into the mirror and nodded.
The time for self-loathing had stopped. Self-appreciation would begin now!
