Day 279

My diary isn't safe to write in any more

Today I began work at midday.

Things seemed normal until half an hour into my shift, Luke comes up to me in store, his eyes rimmed with red from recent tears, and tells me to come outside with him.

It's an emergency.

I follow him into the parking lot and ask him all sorts of questions, is chip okay? What's happened? Are you okay? What's wrong? Luke?

We get into his car across the lot and he immediately says, "First off, we're over".
Then he slams down my DIARY on my lap and another notebook i havent seen before, with a roufh translation of my last entry, which I had written in Greek.

It wasn't good. I had written about some feelings I'd had the other day when Luke was experiencing more manic episodes of paranoia and doubt and being an ass to me, accusing me of all sorts when I was hanging out with my nana. Telling me I'm pathetic and stupid. I don't remember it all, but it was hurtful. I wrote about my feelings and he violated my one safe place to write by translating the words with Google, can you believe.

I'm mortified. I think we are finally over.

    I hope you got away from this guy. Anybody who invades your privacy like that needs to be dumped, asap.

    I was sitting on the fence about it because my mother told me it was my fault for keeping a journal. People are too curious not to look, she said. But it's just how I process thoughts, and people should have more respect and control over their actions to not look in a personal book, I think.

    Your mother is wrong; keeping a journal is one of the best ways to maintain our mental health. I have dozens of journals that I've kept over the years. In my old age, I will go back and laugh at how stupid I was at each age.....
