The Little Black (Back Up) Book

It's late. But a song that reminded me of an individual just came on. Sigh, memories.

In life we meet many different people. Some that stay around for a season with a reason. And a few for a lifetime. For whatever reason we get the two mixed up at times.

Where are you going with this Ashley?
I don't think I'm the only one that has a  phone number or two...3...5 that needs to be deleted from my address book.

It's those you no longer talk to, don't see eye to eye with, the drama queen, the jerk, an ex. Regardless, I think it's time I delete these people from my book. I don't ever talk to them. And running across their name brings back heartache, anger, discomfort or nothing at all. And there's nothing healthy about that. Especially if you're trying to move on. I guess you can say this is the last straw for me.

Deleting the number isn't the hard part. It's getting over the person/feelings.
This is just one of the many steps I have to take to move on. There's no way we can ever act like we never met these people. They're history. A part of our history.

Let them go & regain what is yours.


  1. I know the feeling when someone's name is still in your phonebook, especially someone that brings back not so good memories. I try to delete them once I remember the pain that they have brought me and once I realize that they no longer deserve to be in my phonebook, they are deleted and normally never thought of again, unless they call out of the blue.

  2. Yes, that's true. I hope these people don't! lol
