Relationships are like bombs. A few have tremendously long fuses, which burn for your entire life, never actually detonating. But most have short ones, flaring up quickly and burning rapidly towards the inevitable explosion that is your break up. Sometimes the R-Bomb is sizeable, causing total havoc on your life when it finally blows. And sometimes they’re just like a firecracker, ending with a small, disappointing pop and you saying, “Meh, that was pretty lame.”
Post-explosion, just like a bomb technician, you’re left standing amid a pile of rubble, trying to piece together exactly what happened to cause this. There are a ton of incongruous pieces, charred and mangled, none of which seem to have once formed a complete object. For those stuck in the past, they’ll still try to cobble things back together, attempting to understand the why behind the detonation. But most people mark off the blast area with caution tape, signifying that returning to it could be dangerous or – more likely – sad and depressing.
You have no idea on how many levels this spoke to me…..
“Here is a fact: Whatever critical thing that you are about to say to your wife is already being loudly articulated in her head. And if it’s true, she already feels like crap about it. Assuming you married someone intelligent enough to like you and sane enough to let you put a ring on it, trust that they are self-aware enough to know when they screwed up. It may feel good to you in that moment to say the critical thing, let it go ringing through the air in all its sonorous correctness, but it will feel awful to hear it. The only, only way it’s beneficial to give your wife criticism of any kind is if you’re absolutely positive she is completely unaware. And you better find the nicest, kindest way possible to tell her. And even then, good luck convincing her. Their recognition of the thing you are helpfully trying to point out will be INHIBITED, not facilitated, by your criticism. And then you’re the asshole. So be careful.”
I have a really hard time with mean people. I have a hard time with blatant disrespect. I believe in treating others how you want to be treated. I believe in brutal honesty. I believe in stopping rumors when you can. I believe in loving people according to the situation. Which means if ur peaceful w me, I’m peaceful w you. If u are rude to me, I will deal w u at a distance…in love. If u are mean to me, I will deal w u at a distance…in love. I’ve learned that ppl are not nice and while it is still hard for me to understand, i’ve learned how to deal…at the end of the day I have an assignment and I’m not going to let anyone stop that. those who want to come with me, will and those who want to look at me with their nose turned up, can watch me as i fly past them. Good day.
