Okay, who the hell came up with that damn expression? $100 to anyone who can answer that for me. That expression is one of the biggest crocks of shit I've heard and I've heard a lot of dumb shit in my life. Why the rage? I guess it's partly residual effects of my being pissed off yesterday and for me wanting to close the chapter on something/one stressful in my life.
But back to the title. I think parting can be one of the best things that could happen. If someone was in your life that was toxic, wouldn't you want them gone? If something was more drama than its worth, wouldn't you want to be done with it? Wouldn't you be happy that you finally got rid of them? Yeah, of course you would, so that there is proof that parting is not sweet sorrow. Okay, maybe a part of you wishes it didn't have to come down to such a terminal outcome, but c'mon it was for the best. Normally, I'm the one who looks for the silver lining in hopes of some level of compromise, but to hell with that shit anymore. I'm currently of the mindset that sprinkling sugar on shit and calling it candy just makes for sugar coated shit any way you slice it; I just don't have the time or patience for that anymore. I've spent too many wasted years invested in people who were counter productive and I was always in the deficit while dealing with them; uh, not anymore. When I see signs, I'm taking notice and not making excuses for them or whatever they've done. I'm confronting things head on and will deal with it accordingly. If, in the process, it means terminating that person from my life, it'll just have to be collateral damage.
I think parting can be a liberating and wonderful experience. A little sad it ended maybe, but being sorrowful, ah the hell with that. Life is too short and I need to go find some goodness in this otherwise crazy world.
