Did you every say or do something you wish you could take back? That impulsive thought, action, that once given and received cannot be retrieved. Why do we do that? Actually why do I do that? I keep saying I won’t do that again. I will give it a day before I respond or react. But I don’t. I’m not talking about something that would hurt someone or belittle them. No… These are words of love and kindness that were not taken or interrupted correctly by the recipient. Their response to me was like a knife being jabbed into my stomach and twisted around. It reminded me of a time I don’t care to remember. And then you begin to over think it and interrupt it many ways; which is so asinine. Words are just words; without action behind them, they don’t mean much. But when you are a few thousand miles away, you find yourself attaching to every word, because that is all you have.
Being single for 3 years, has put me in a vulnerable place. I long for that stimulating conversation with a male friend. And I mean a friend. Reconnecting with my old friend has helped me see some things in my life from a different perspective. It has helped me let go of some things I didn’t realize I was holding on to. So it saddens me that I may have lost this friend due to misinterpretation using social media. But you know what… If we never speak again, I will always remember this past week. He opened my eyes and helped rekindle my inner spirit and for that, I am grateful. Sometimes people step into our lives for just a short while to get you on your new path. I know I touched his life as well:)
