Life is a rapid fire series of changes, crisis, and wonder. I’ve had more than my fair share of everything these last few weeks. Yet today I woke up very early, and had a peace in my heart for a change. See, I booted my renter because the negative energy, drunken stupidness and insensitive words he spewed at me 2 nights ago were just more than I could have in my life. Sure, it’s going to make a huge financial adjustment inevitable, but I woke up this morning in peace; not dreading dealing with his irrational ass stupidity. See, he’s one of those guys who thinks he’s “all that and a bag of Doritos” when he’s just an empty bag, a very empty bag. HIs wanting to talk turned into a ball of threats, hostility and blatant disrespect. This only reflects what he really thinks about himself; how truly he feels he himself is a total failure and has to try to make someone else feel “less than” so he can feel like a “man”, when he is merely an empty bag with no direction and no idea of where he himself is going. I actually got a good look at how people “believe” their own personal lies, and fall victim to ego. And a new resolve to make my life far better than it was when he was here. Yes, I think I shall live alone for a while, no need to have a renter because the last 3 have been very wrong for me, so I am going to just go this on my own, and struggle through it. I’ll be just fine, I feel it.
I was at a pretty low point yesterday after I got the renter out of here. My only thoughts were focused on money and how I was going to manage the month. Prior to knowing I would have to ask him to leave (after he started drinking on Sunday and morphing into an asshole) I had bought the paint for the living room, loaned a friend some money, and made some other purchases to move things along, that I would not have done this month had I had the knowledge that this would pan out this way. But, it’s done and I will have to scrimp and figure it out as I go for the rest of the month. I have to say, I was pretty low and feeling stuck. But a Facebook friend who lives locally contacted me, sensed my despair and offered to stop over for a short visit. At first I hesitated, then I said why not, come on over. It turned out to be just what I needed. We enjoyed a nice conversation, coffee and a little weed – something I haven’t done in a long time. But my pain levels are high and I am no longer on pain medications at all. So it was a great visit and really helped improve my day! I was happy that I hadn’t, again, pushed someone away. I have a bad habit of doing just that, which I must break immediately.
I am saddened by the distancing of the girl I care for very much down south. It was her choice. It’s kind of a pattern with us, she gets irritated that I have other friends who are women, and all hell breaks loose. It aggravates me but there’s a point where I am just not going to be bossed around about who I associate with on a friendship level. It’s not right, not fair and the situation is she is THERE and I am HERE. I’m not going to just sit and wait forever for something that may never even materialize, for a full range of reasons. We choose to be exactly where we are in the world, physically, financially, and socially. I have chosen to be here in Maine, very consciously so, and this is where I shall remain. While I mourn the loss of even the friendship, I am well aware of the reasoning. One can only stay frustrated for so long before they need to decide one way or the other what is best for them personally. I respect her decision and hope she finds love and light there where she’s chosen to be. She’s a strong woman, and lives in a tough place, but it’s her comfort zone, and we all like to stay protected in our comfort zones, that’s a natural thing.
So, in closing, the last 3 weeks have been damnation and hellfire. But today I am a new person. I am on a mission to not be in a funk any longer and to find what I need in my life. It’s out there, I just need to take it and make it mine. I’m not disillusioned that this will be an easy run, but baby-steps will get me there, and I am finding the energy to make those steps, one by one. LIfe is challenging to everyone, I am not special by any means, but only I am in charge of my path and at the start of each day it’s only me that can make things happen to make tomorrow just a little better. Be well dear readers. Peace.
