in retrospect

in retrospect…perhaps my previous post was a bit too satirical, a bit too harsh. i have lived enough years and through enough pain that a little whining about one relationship irks me, when i have suffered heartache my entire life. but i should be fair- hurt is hurt, pain is pain, no matter how simpleminded it is displayed for the world to see. for those souls i would advise they not fling themselves over the edge of an abyss in their tender, yet sometimes psychotic, word choice…one might more simply embrace poetry- no matter how tragic- to describe the depths of despair. it might also gain heartfelt points from those of us who have more experience…

but it really was an atrocious collage of pathetic dribble at times…hence, the need for a satirical voice, lest i laugh inappropriately at a slightly bruised individual…which is not a funny thing. mea culpa, I expect the spanish inquisition….

    Those who have suffered heartache and pain or been hurt in other ways are not unable to laugh at themselves so I doubt a little satire will hurt us. But beggar me, the inquisition under our control sounds like fun. Payback for all those who ever said “Pull yourself together ” maybe?

    Pity the souls who give too much to one person. I did once, and I have never been the same since. And yes, I was one of those pathetic souls who languished in a psychiatric hospital after the experience. It left me apathetic. One should give all of oneself to God, who will never leave or forsake us. And that was my mistake.

    • Bless you. I am so sorry you have gone through such hell.

        Learning experiences! He and I are friends now, although if you read comments on my blog and you see ones like “WTF” that is him. We are–now–brutally honest with each other. But the pain is baggage that will always be there and his ” Im sorry” still hangs between us even twenty years later.
