More Than Two Years Later...:
Thought I'd update all of you who are still following this blog. It's been over two years since that toxic ex-friend and I fought last and no longer became friends, which doe not matter to me anymore. You know, I've learned quite a bit from my college friends about life as an adult.
Yesterday, I accompanied my mother to a local Target store, and I remember seeing a burlesque large man that reminded me of my toxic ex's father. I simply paid no mind and just walked about the store. Then in one part I recall seeing a woman who resembled my toxic ex-friend's mother. For some reason, I had forgotten about seeing the father at that point. I paid no mind and continued looking around.
It was not until I was leaving the store when I noticed a familiar vehicle sitting there. That was when it hit me: Those were my toxic ex-friend's parents.
However, I am no longer scared of them. It's not because of the situation going on in the United States about cops being targeted due to injustice in Ferguson and New York City. I believe the people responsible for such injustices are actually those sitting in elected judicial offices, lawyer offices, and those lurking about the courthouse.
I'm just not scared of them because my toxic ex-friend is a long thing of the past. That's why I haven't been posting anything on here lately.
Looking Back At It From The Perspective of Me Now:
When I look back to what happened, I realize that it was one of those high-school style friendships that a sad number of people are trying to re-live. To be honest, I'm a grown adult. As a person gets older, hanging out and having friends is no longer the priority. Instead, it is bettering one's self. That's what I'm working to do now.
I am currently in my second year at a community college, but I intend to carry on to university. At the same time, I am in progress with my goals and have moved forward with my life. To be honest, I don't know where that girl is now, but I don't care if she's ahead of me or not in life. Right now, my life is all about me. Not her.
She's not in control of me. I am in control of me.
If We See Each Other...
When I was working at one place, one of her little minions saw me. She was with a boy and pretended as though we were just friends in high school. There's nothing wrong with it, because that's the same thing I would say about her. I just knew her in high school.
My toxic ex-friend and those minions are nothing in my mind than a group of girls who used to be my friends. I'm glad that we see it mutually and in that manner. Neutrality is the best way to go. No taunting, quipping, or jabs. Just hello and that's it.
I will forever be happy that I left. I don't know if any of you are okay with this or not, but I have something to talk about that happened since then.
In late 2013, I briefly dated a woman. Today, she is a friend to me, and I am much happier talking with her than the toxic ex. I also have a lot of other friends who are gay and are my friends that I hang with some times. They have been so accepting of me just as I have been of them, and to think of what happened had I just stayed with those girls. I would have gone nowhere, because one of the minions is against homosexuality.
Now I can walk around telling the world that I am a bisexual!
Anyway, I would like to conclude my blogging about this toxic friend. She's a girl of the past. An ancient relic walking the Earth. I'm proud to be the me of now, and I'm proud to be where I am at.
All of my current friends are the best!
