Tonight I was reminded of a very valuable idea: never ask a question unless you are prepared to hear an answer you won't like.
Had a Facebook conversation with someone that SUPPOSEDLY cares about me and has even used the "L" word to describe their feelings. The following is the basic break down of the conversation: (this person shall be called "The Other" for the purposes of this blog post)
Italics are my internal thoughts during the conversation.
The Other: I feel special
Me: Because you are ... at least to me
The Other: Thank you
(really only a mother fucking thank you - how about you are special to me as well?)
Me: But you already knew that
The Other: Yes Ma'am
Me: Mmmmm - wonder where I stand though?
(crickets chirping now - mofo, it shows you saw the message but didn't answer)
Me: Hmmm - maybe no answer is really my answer to where I stand
(The Other has logged off)
So of course, I forgot all about my break thru from yesterday and began to eat junk to push down my feelings. But tomorrow is another day and I WILL remember this conversation and the lack of response from The Other and I WILL get back on track and remember that this is about ME and no one else!
Guess I have my answer for now AND was reminded of a very valuable idea ...
Until then, keep it #sassyandsarcastic
