Ever since I was young, I’ve always tried so hard not to say anything to anyone to hurt them. I genuinely realize that words can’t be taken back. I can think anything I want, but it’s rare that I let the words escape this giant head of mine.
Unfortunately, others don’t take the same kind of care with their words. People find it so easy to unload on me and although the words hurt, I try to forgive and forget. Recently, someone came at my throat and although they apologized a few days later, the words really hurt. REALLY hurt. I’ve always given this person the benefit of the doubt, been very careful of their feelings, and always tried to see things from their side. There is now a wall. A very thick, mighty, and sturdy wall that will NEVER be toppled between us.
Over the years, I’ve tried to show them what they are worthy of, what they didn’t deserve from the people around them, and the happiness they could have if they would just try… They don’t get it. They’re too set in their ways.
This isn’t someone I can just ignore or walk away from. They are going to be around for the rest of our lives. As a friend, I’m okay with that, but at an arms length. Beyond that, I have no use for them. I hope they find what they need in life and stop fighting the universe on its message. Not everything has to be so tough for them and they don’t have to be such an asshole about every single thing.
