Last night was one of those nights where everything seemed to implode on me. Well...not everything but I did see a side to someone that I never wanted to see. Granted...I've seen it directed towards others so it shouldn't surprise me when she directed it towards me.
I found out a couple of months ago that someone whom I thought was a good friend, was talking trash about me. Can you say "Why don't you stab me in the heart with a knife and twist it okay?". WOW!!! I knew she was two faced and backstabber but I'm not sure why I didn't expect it to fly in my direction. I kept the information to myself as a long planned trip was coming up and I did not want to be out the money I paid for her flight. Had I said something before the trip I know full well she would have never paid me back. So, I kept my mouth shut. Kept it shut until yesterday. I called her out on her backstabbing and how hurt I was. I was nice in the email. It could have very easily gone down a bad road but I maintained my composure. What she did was not expected. She did not reply to me but instead blocked my daughters and a friend of mine from her facebook. She then took her rant and rage to twitter. I was called crazy, dead weight in her life that she is glad she no longer has to deal with, I have serious mental issues, I am not loved, don't have friends who care about me, that I am pissed about something from a year ago (REALLY??? So I should be okay that you were talking trash about me just after we got back from spending the weekend in Seaside for my birthday?), I need help and she can't help me. The list goes on and on. All of this coming from a woman, who 2 weeks ago was saying how glad she was to have spent time with me in Vegas, how we were going to be friends forever, how I deserve nothing but the best in life, how I was the best friend a person could ask for...blah blah blah. As soon as she knew I was onto her...she ran to the "Twi-family" telling them all kinds of things so they will sympathize with her. Let me see....when was the last time I gave a rats ass about what those people think about me? Oh...how about not since the cruise ended? People who knew me all of 10 days? Please. They are not even worth a second thought much less my concern for what they think of me.
This will be my one and only rant about a person whom I helped become part of the "Twi-family" as no one on the cruise boards would even talk to her. That's okay though. She is who she is. She has her own demons to contend with. I won't give her a second thought once this blog is written. I did nothing to her to warrant her treatment towards me. I guess I should have started putting things together when she showed very little concern for me when I told her I was hit by a semi while on the way to her house last winter. I know I was a good friend to her. I did not talk behind her back, I helped her out with her flight to Vegas so she had time to save for the ticket, I spent loads of money for party things on a party I was not able to attend, I defended her when people would say she was nuts. It's fine. I did what I could to be her friend. She chose to destroy it. The consequences she will have to deal with. I am not the one who lost much. She is 30 years old, lives in a home where dog pee and poop are part of the decor, drinks way more than anyone should, hates her job, has in-laws that don't like her and will one day lose everyone she holds dear. No one will be at fault but her. As for me...I have a support system in place that has banded together and brought me back up to where I was before she was around. I can honestly say...she will not be missed.
