Life is too short

.... to be dealing with your drama

 

So my joyful weekend that was planned had a little bump. Last night I was getting my hair dyed, along with my beautiful daughters. Halfway through I get a phone call. Someone passed away. He was my ex’s brother-in-law, my daughter’s uncle. I’ve known him for 18+ years. Despite the relationship ending with my ex, I still saw and hung out with this guy and his family. At least once a year we were getting together for one reason or another. He was younger than me… by a year… but we’ve watched each other grow up over the years. Kids, relationships, good times and misfortunes… we’ve basically seen each other going through all aspects of life. He will be missed by many and will never be forgotten.

 

It’s so scary to know that one day it’s all going to be over and you have no control over when that day will be. This has given me a new outlook on life. I’m not going to sit here and deal with the BS that some people want to bring into my life. In the past I have succumbed to retaliating. I fought back. I defended myself and my family. I threw the same stones you threw. But you will NOT bring me back into it anymore. Your drama will not be an important factor in my future therefore, it’s gone. It’s done. It’s dead. I’m going to live for me and my family.

 

For those that don’t like it, I truly feel sorry for you. One day your world will be changed (I PRAY that nothing bad happens to make that change) and maybe, just maybe, you’ll look back and say ‘Damn, I wasted so much of myself on something so meaningless’. You are far too insignificant to waste another precious moment on.
