People have started to come back slowly, testing the waters, seeing if anything’s different. I’m being careful this time so they don’t go away again. Keep it light. Don’t mention the weirdness. Pretend it’s all OK, or at least suggest that it might not quite be just yet but will be soon.
It was good to talk things through but in the end it wasn’t worth it. Not everyone has come back and things are still tentative with those who have. Learn from mistakes. Smile. Pretend. Finish messages with haha, lol, 🙂 😀 😛
