Sometimes People Disappoint You

Sometimes people disappoint you. Sometimes they are unreliable, illogical, irresponsible and impossible but you put up with them anyway, or so the experts say.

As for me, well there is a very simple test I use.

Do I notice if you are around or not.

If I don't notice when you are here or not I tend to just let you go because life is too short to waste on people who don't add to our lives and only take.

The Truths You Don't Share

Been thinking about a bunch of different things and trying to figure out what to do about the answers I come up with to the questions that have been troubling me.

Every time I do I touch upon some tender spots that haven't always been there but have been around long enough for me to pretend that the pain is natural and normal.

The major ones are neither and I can't keep pretending they are. You wouldn't know they exist unless I chose to share them and I have intentionally not provided specific details because you don't need to know.

It is enough that I know and the only reason I am mentioning them here is because it helps keep me accountable to the only person that they matter to... me.

What I can tell you is I am actively working on changes and doing all I can to make them happen sooner than later but trying to avoid being reckless. Even though I want them to be over with there is no point moving faster than is prudent.

The lesson here is to remember the worst person you can lie to is yourself.
