Removing the blinkers

I had an interesting experience today, as I realised that two of my friends have been dating for the last six months without me knowing about it. Now I realise that my not-noticing was caused by being totally caught up in my own woes for the last 13 months.

Now, you could argue that it was understandable, as I was actually quite badly hurt/ill for much of that time. But the world doesn't revolve around me and now I've taken the blinkers off, I'm becoming more aware of others.

It won't stop me being selfish from time to time. But hopefully I can get back to being more of the me I used to be.

So, if you're having a secret affair, watch out - I might start noticing the signs.
