Have you ever thought about how you would handle a phone call from an ex-boyfriend?
Have you ever thought about preparing for such a call? Or perhaps a run-in?
I had thought from time to time, "what if so and so called...," but I never thought about actually equipping myself for if it ever did happen.
And it did happen, an ex called.
I was caught completely off guard and ended up staying on the phone for ten minutes trying to be polite, but praying that the call would end. I personally have people-pleasing issues, so I'm not good at just cutting off conversation or hanging up. Long story short, I told my husband and it hurt him that I stayed on the phone so long. He knows my personality and understood the situation, but none-the-less, it wasn't okay.
After a very awkward ten minutes, and the conversation afterwards with my husband, I decided to come up with a game plan for if it ever happens again (hopefully it won't, especially with the guy who called. I did end up politely telling him that it wouldn't be a good idea to call again).
Tomorrow I'm going to offer some tips and questions to get you thinking about what I call, "Ex Prep." Hope you'll join me!
