One of the things that I despise in life is when someone whom I’ve shared years of my life with gets into a relationship, and then decides that I am no longer worthy of their friendship. Let’s talk about friends that disappear!
I’ve had several people do that to me over the years. Some hurt more than others, especially after decades long friendships. They get involved with some loser partner who is insecure, and basically wants them to cut everyone off.
Recently, I had one respond to a random text, and she said to me, “I deleted your number and removed you from Facebook because my boyfriend was intimidated by you. You said I looked beautiful once, I liked it, and he got really jealous.”
Obviously, in that scenario, the guy is a loser. Some insecure, small, weak man. However, he owes me nothing, my friendship was with her, and she allowed this little man to interfere with our friendship. They are split now, so I guess I’m okay to talk to again. Needless to say that after that message, I never engaged with her. I said, “Well, have a good life.” If she wants my friendship, she’ll have to earn it, and she never reached back, so basically, she can go fuck herself.
This podcast was a random conversation with my youngest sister, and though we didn’t get too deep into it, and the audio quality isn’t the best, I thought I’d share it anyway. You can listen by clicking here, or pressing play below. Also remember that you can subscribe over email and on iTunes!
