DEFRIENDED!?

Well, it was bound to happen. I've been officially defriended. Sure, our relationship was strained, we had some problems. But I thought we were just going through a rough patch. I thought that we'd be friends forever and this was just one of those little challenges that real friends have to get through. Maybe I still hold out a little hope, but wow being defriended without a word really bothers me more than it should. I think I'm going to go have a little cry. It's okay. Men can cry. I'm secure in my masculinity. I can handle it. Really. No, no. Really. I'll be okay. Maybe.

I'm putting you on notice!

And by YOU, I mean ME. It's time to pick myself up and dust myself off and stop wallowing in self-pity, in what could have happened, and what might have been. I've made my mistakes in life, with friends, with family and I'm a better person for having learned from those mistakes. At a minimum I've learned which ones not to make again. So no more avoiding the blog because I've become suddenly self-conscious. After all, these words are here for me. They're part of me and I love them. Plus I love the occasional insight people bring to me when they read them and how that helps me grow.
