That stung. But if her life will be better without me being her friend, so be it. I wish her well.
That got me thinking that there are many people who were once a part of my life but are no longer. Truth be told, many of those bridges were burnt by me. I’m one of the most introverted people you’d ever want to meet. I can fake it when I choose to, but that says more to my ability to mimic and act than to my ability to truly be comfortable around others.
And yes, I know that people with strong opinions don’t necessarily keep friends around, especially not in this day and age. But I never was one to keep my mouth shut.
Yet some of you continue to come back and support me. It has not gone unnoticed. So I want to thank you for that, from the bottom of my ornery little heart.
Have a cookie. Rumpy would have wanted it that way.
