I sometimes think of my ex-T as perfect, and I always get annoyed when I think that way. I imagine he has a good marriage and a nice family life and a nice house and a nice car. I know hes professionally successful; I believe hes very good at applying himself to his work, and I compare myself unfavourably with him. I wish I were a better parent, a better spouse, and a better employee. I wish I were more like how I imagine him. Im sure if I were a man Id be convinced his penis was bigger than mine!

I dont want him to be perfect. I want him to feel petulantly aggrieved at the rule that says we cant be friends. I want him to harbour unprofessional feelings for me. I want him to meet me for coffee. Sigh.

I read somewhere recently about a survey of psychologists, in which they were asked whether being psychologists made them better parents. Most of them said no, but being parents made them better psychologists. I can imagine that.
