Dear So and So...
Dear (Foe) Friend,
I’m upset, and so I’m not going to be all sweet and nice and butter you up today.
You know me, I’m not usually like this…so hostile, but I have something to say to you and it just has to come out in the open.
What’s wrong with you? You used to be so nice to me.
We go back so very far…all the way to my teen years.
You were always good to me…so very stable. I could count on you to make me happy, to say nice things to me. For almost 15 years things were just right between us.
Then I had my babies. Now, I know this is a time of change and lots of big adjustments, but one would think that after some time things would have improved for us…well, that’s not fair. I know it did for awhile.
But then stress kicked in and then what happened to you. So many ups and downs. What ever happened to just being stable.
So now, here we are. I haven’t been in great health. I know you said you would be there through “thick and thin”, but, it’s thick right now (especially at my mid section, ehem) but you have become downright CRUEL.
Maybe we have been spending too much time together. I know that my daily visits may not be so healthy for us. Maybe I should only come by weekly. I don’t know what the best thing is here.
All I am asking is for some kindness…I mean, give me a break! Please, some GRACE here.
I’m going to do my part. I am resolved. Will you please do yours?
I want you in my life. After all, you will always be my....
