It’s funny isn’t it –
When people (your friends) think badly of other people (your other friends) and then you feel stuck in the middle even though those other people (your other friends) weren’t very nice to you at one point of time
Back when these people (your friends) kept telling you over and over, repeatedly pointing out the obvious that you’re better off (read: would not get hurt by) without these other people (your other friends) but then you still refuse to listen until of course, the shit hits the fan like it always does and the truth reveals itself
It’s like one sadistic high school drama that grew out of proportions but is still feeding on your securities.
Thing is, that doesn’t necessarily mean these people (your friends) can continue chiding these other people (your other friends) blatantly in full plain view, does it? I mean that’s just courtesy. And tact. And respect for your feelings, assuming you still haven’t confronted these other people (your other friends) about what they did and the hurt they caused
And then there’s that. What they said could easily be countered with what you have to say now, but then what you have to say would just, in turn, hurt these other people (your other friends) and you don’t want to hurt them cos you know how much pain that would be (from the initial hurt that was caused by them, to you)
So then you continue acting oblivious to what these other people (your other friends) have done, which then in turn allows these other people (your other friends) to continue doing whatever it is they do to get what they want (but which hurts you sometimes), which then allows some people (your friends) to continue telling you straight in your face about their dislike for those other people and a repeated “I told you so” and then sometimes it blows up to be one huge misunderstanding.
Even when you give a party the benefit of the doubt, you end up the one being wrong.
I should get headaches from things more worthy of my thoughts.
