When a fishy friend betrays you in every heinous way possible, you can try taking the giggle right out of her slippery agenda by telling her…
Ack, nevermind… she already showed us who she IS NOT.
Why waste another moment on the whys of it all in Stupidville…
Dr. Seuss must have known Stupidville once, his brilliance so true:
“Dr. Seuss said - “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
There is no WHY for the disingenuous, deceitful, duplicitous among us.
And there is no WHO.
Because any friend, relationship or love worth having is never going to drive you to Stupidville in the first place.
They are what they are, no who involved, blows to minds or bodies
proof they speak false Godlies
In a place we learned much more than we knew possible as we sail through on mighty lifeship to genuine friendship relationships.
Happen I am now officially moving out of Stupidville.
Dr. Seuss, may I please move in next to Horton in Whoville? Please…
While I work on the creation that is someday to be Meville,
No, wait, I’m on my way to “Youville” where people can do me no Eville.
Leaving never felt so good.
Unless you count that fall down the outhouse hole when you were wee (ohyesIdid).
Like Uncle Buck (John Candy) said in the movie to his niece of trying to knock some sense into her boyfriend, “Yah, but would he notice?”
The bonus? (if there is one in all this) …
A well-placed kick to the body can be a powerful kick start to the brain or vice-versa.
If your brain and other bodily function organs can withstand the jolt(s), that is.
Some physical hurts burn clear through to the brain.
Some emotional hurts stain worse than any physical pain.
Choosing friends is a lifelong dice rolling business indeed.
Friends for goodness is always best, more better than need.
Row gently and carry a ginormous magnifying glass.
Speaking from personal experience, I would say never give up hope of finding another genuine, kind-heart on the path of goodness.
When there is nothing else, there is always hope.
And, where there is hope there is still room for making even more mistakes.
