In times past I would have filled pages of drama and anger and bitterness and spite and hatred – My new view is… why bother? Choosing to participate in said drama never actually comes to a peaceful resolution, and no one really ever “Wins” Nothing is ever gained nor is there a mutual understanding of the issues. It’s one huge problematic detail after another. Participating is pointless and fruitless – arguments ensue over the silliest of details. By the time it’s all over, both parties are hurt, upset, and now further distraught by the currents and riptides that brought on the issue in the first place. In addition to this chances are that the original issue is buried in a pile of bitterness and forgotten about as it was quickly tossed aside.

So my result was to choose to not to participate – although a bit frustrating at times it has been the best choice.

I harbor no ill will or hate at aforementioned people that may now or in the future fall into the above catagory, but I will not extend more than common courtesy to them again.

A much happier more content Obi.

A friend is….

Recently I had a *friend* who I had apparently falsely put some faith and confidence in a couple of times. Several times she’s extremely expressed her desire to get upset and angry and yell at people for things that have occurred in my life. As much as I appreciate the sentiment that said person would go to bat for me, I never asked her to. She has now overstepped her bounds by saying she could “Fuck me if she wanted to” and making a public stink about it. The initial problem wasn’t any of her concern or business; I confided in her thinking that she would just listen to me – which she was someone I could turn or talk to for issues I’m having. A shoulder to lean on or talk to privately. She has now made it a public concern by posting it on her public journal. The Funny thing is her public post, had nothing to do with the problem I was experiencing – She took something that happened TO ME, and turned it into “poor little her.”

This is not an action that I would do to someone that I consider a friend

it sadness me to see that my trust and faith in said person was grossly misplaced she acted out of what she believed was self defense… when the real problem here isn’t what she said, it was how she said it, and that the problem at hand… has absolutely nothing to do with what she posted.

She missed the point of the conversation… entirely…. Then took it to a level that It never should have gone to.

She made again a public stink on someone else’s journal saying “you’re trying to make this problem about you.”

It’s because IT WAS ABOUT THEM.

I would never do what has just been done – regardless of the issue I’m much more skeptical of people I confide in anymore. As Life Turns, I’m finding that there are very few people I can keep my confidences in.
