I lost another friendship today!
I wonder if it is something in my physiognomy that predisposes me to temporary relationships.
Or, is it because my instincts are so keenly aware of peoples’ motivations that they become threatened and intimidated by my shrewd intuitiveness and telepathic abilities?
My husband frequently tells me that I have a pair of eyes that could melt icebergs. I beg to differ. I just possess a mental health philosophy that telegraphs that I don’t take the time, that I don’t make the time, that I don’t waste the time, nor do I find the time for your perpetual foolishness!
Bottom line, I don’t engulf myself in your cesspool of victimizations, infinite problems, worries, excuses, depressions, schemes, distresses, and dramas simply because you are content to reside on beggar’s alley, borrower’s junction, failure’s place, or at procrastination point. As for me, I choose to live on abundance drive!
One may say that I am a proud, card-carrying member of the emotionally selfish club? So. It has taken me years to arrive at this juncture. For once, it’s exhilarating to be on the upward mobility treadmill. Hallelujah, I now know how to avoid barriers to happiness!
My dusty moccasins have taught me that “occasionally we need to experience the polar opposite of what we want in order to appreciate the pole we want to enjoy.” I have had my share of winters. I have had my share of darkness. I have had my share of cold. I have had my share of pain. I have had my share of hallucinatory people. I have had my share of charades.
According to Clifton Fadiman, “a good memory is one trained to forget the trivial.” So like an organized executive and without much fanfare, I have officially withdrawn another troublous relationship from my emotional bank account and will wear my ostracism like the bravery of Geronimo.
Let the celebration begin!
