words for the day… take 12

“Don’t let what he wants eclipse what you NEED. He’s very dreamy, but he’s not the sun. YOU are”…

Christina Yang*


Hmm… when you put it that way, I know exactly what do do. But, dammit, how on earth does one, 8.8 ounce organ manage to take my plans and stir them up like a witch with a cauldron ?!

I have spent the last 15 months retraining my brain and heart to believe I am the Sun of my own solar system, and have happily accepted this as fact… celebrate it, even. So how, when one knows that another one is not the end game for the first one… how does that first one walk away ? If it were a friend asking, I would say carefully, honestly, and quickly, before anyone gets entrenched in the possibility of it all. Unfortunately, we know that tendrils have grown, that brambles have twisted up, and instead of a smooth path from which to wave goodbye, we are now faced with a veritable hedgerow, from which escape can only be gained with forceful hacking, and bleeding pain from the thorns.

Seriously… ?! Again, I stand by my proclamation that being a grownup sucks. Does anyone have some bandaids, please ? This is gonna hurt…


*Yes, I did just quote a fictional character, who happens to be from trashy telly, not a suitably impressive novel. But hey, when words are true, does it matter who utters them ?


PS- Can a blog post have a PS ? Hnh, I have so many questions… At any rate, My Bear kindly and patiently smoothed things out last night, much to my mutual joy and dismay. He is a thoughtful, kind and patient man who always admits when he is wrong. On that description alone, I have 4 friends who want to m-word him ! It’s no wonder I serious feelings him…
