Day 25: The person you know that is going through the worst of times……………..
I know that you are upset right now. I know that you are vacillating between hurt, anger, and depression, sometimes at alarming rates. I know that you fantasize about beating someone up to “get even”, falling on your knees to beg for another chance, or moving on to create a feeling of jealousy in someone else. I know all of these things, because I have been where you are right now, more times than I care to remember. It hurts, and it sucks. It also gets easier. That I can tell you for sure.
I do care about you, and I do consider you my friend. You extended kindness to me when I desperately needed it, and I will never forget that. You do realize, though, that Paula is my best friend, right? You know I will always take her side, have her back, so to speak. Don’t get me wrong, I will listen to you, if you need someone to talk to, but in the end, my loyalty is and always will be with her.
A year ago, you and Paula were giving me pep talks. So if you need one, I am here. Again, I promise you, it does get easier.
