Two months ago I was almost obsessing about what they were “doing to me”. I was always angry at them, And tbh, the situation made me miserable in my own apartment.
Then the counselor facilitated a meeting between me and the woman next door. We talked and cleared the air and cleared up some misunderstandings.
Things have been way better ever since.
Today I locked myself out of my house when I was leaving for work. Not only did I leave my keys inside but also my phone. And my car keys.
I took a chance and went upstairs to the guys apartment above me. 5 months ago I went up with bad feelings and he cussed me out and threatened to kick my ass.
Today he greeted me by name and I told him I locked myself out of my apartment and asked if I could borrow his phone to call the property manager to bring the key for me. He didn’t hesitate and said “sure”. I called and she said she would be over in an hour and a half. When I gave the guy back his phone he asked if I wanted to come in and hang out until the lady came! I told him yes, I wanted to but I was not feeling social. He said OK and I went and sat outside my door for 90 minutes. But the point is that now we’re friendly.
And while I was sitting on the porch the woman came out and offered to let me use her phone or her bathroom and was going to give me a half gallon of milk. She was totally friendly.
They see my good side now. They tell the counselor I’m friendly and nice. Things aren’t perfect but everybody has been a lot happier lately and we all co-exist in peace. Who says things and people can’t change for the better? I’m living proof.
