Bastard men!

Bastard men!

You know, men can really be bastards!
(Yes, I'm fully aware that I'm a man.)

Without getting into all the gory details, a friend of mine just had the love of her life break up with her via email -- after 2½ years. Ironically that isn’t even the part which pisses me off. There are extenuating circumstances that make the email “Dear Jane” -- if not ideal -- somewhat marginally acceptable. I’m trying to give him the benefit of the doubt here.

The thing that strikes me in all of this is the degree to which people can play the denial game. Wait. Stop. When does “Making it work,” “Working through it,” “Relationships are hard,” become “Break with reality,” “Denial,” “You’re just kidding yourself?”

This woman is in MASSIVE pain. My heart breaks when I, and her other friends, go to comfort her. Even 20/20 hindsight seems a little more myopic in this case. I really don’t even know what I’m trying to say here. Maybe I just wish people wouldn’t try to make the impossible work.

Well, I’ve written and discarded about three times as many paragraphs as you see here…

I think I’ll just quit trying to wrap my head around it all. Besides, it’s proving very difficult to try to explain my thoughts without revealing information that is not mine to divulge. It just helps to vent a little. Pardon the erratic and confusing post.

oh'll NEVER be a bastard. Just not in you.

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn

Silhouette: That's just wrong. Sorry you had that experience.

Impish: I'm repressing my inner bastard.
