When people you care about make stupid decisions.
And I was going to be a good friend and be supportive and not say anything until said friend couldn’t be man enough to tell me good by. You know, because his stupid decision meant that a woman was dictating his life and he was forbidden from speaking to other females, myself included.
I’m not going to blow up his phone so I’m going to type it here… because I know he’ll see it.
You’re making a very stupid decision. Your many-year long relationship ended and you told me that you never knew how stifled you were until you got out. You said that while you felt bad because she loved you, you knew that it was absolutely the right choice. Then you tried to move on. Well, lets be honest, you tried to move on too fast and you started to feel trapped. So what do you do? You leave that to go straight back into the old relationship? Now you’re back where you felt stifled and your freedoms are being stripped away? That’s bullshit and you know it.
Then you cannot even tell me yourself that we’ll never speak again. What the fuck is that? I’ve had great respect for you for so long. I’ve admired you and looked up to you and I would brag about you to friends only to have that respect shattered in half of a second.
Well, it was more like an hour long wait for a response.
I’m not an idiot, so of course I got the hint that “she made me promise no other girls” meant that you and I would no longer talk. However, you dug this hole yourself so why not be a man and say the words yourself. “I feel pretty shitty” is not an apology. Fuck, I didn’t even ask for an apology… I just wanted you to tell me yourself. Instead you let me sit and wait and I’m not waiting for somebody who cannot show me a sliver of respect.
I’m sorry. I want nothing but happiness for you but you’re going to be miserable and it’s your own damn fault.
I cannot believe you.
Face to Face
Up close and personal, just how I like it.
