6 thoughts on “Enemies & friends

  1. This has been one of my biggest downfalls, and one of the many reasons I’m pretty much trapped in the relationship I’m in now, even though it’s toxic and unhealthy.

    My girlfriend was the first one who asked me out, which played to my ego and it has pretty much gone downhill ever since. I also haven’t really needed any enemies with the kind of friends I have had over they years.

    Usually I have ended up being blind to their character defects, especially with women and in relationships; which is a pattern I need to break before I can move on.

    I finally have the chance to be with the one woman who knows me better than I know myself, but I have to break away from the current girlfriend, which I really am not looking forward too.

    Like a friend told me today, it may suck and it will be painful, but I will survive.

    1. Thanks Randy. You will come through the other end of moving into a new relationship.

      We parent as we have been parented, children emulate and copy what they see, so children who have good role models as parents, will make better choices, around friendship groups and relationships.

      But regardless of our parenting, we can change our circumstances. It’s up to us to ‘reinvent the wheel’ as they say and make the necessary changes. From what you say, you have the opportunity to change certain aspects of your life.

      Your life is in your hands. Your friend is right, you will survive. It might be that when you look back, you might then wish you had taken your friend’s advice, and come to realise it’s all just a little too late.

  2. I’m flattered by compliments accompanied by shiny smiles, but I usually see straight through things like that. Though I still remain in awe at some of the performances.

    Of course, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been caught off guard a few times.

    1. Thanks Tim. Yes, we learn as we go and it’s usually when we get caught out.

      We learn a lot from our friendship groups over the years, when we learn about life. Friends who we were thought were friends, may sometimes have their own agenda, and those friends we thought we couldn’t trust, we find we can.

      As you say it’s easy to get caught off guard. It’s only when we look back that we can see the tale, tale signs, by which time it’s too late.
