Take A Little Piece Of Me
I've been going through this thing we all call life, just as good and as bad as the rest. I've seen friends come and go. I've seen friends resurface from so far back, that I had to blow the dust off of them. I understand that everyone is placed in our lives for a reason. I also understand that we're placed in people's lives for a reason. I'm saying all of this because I've been reflecting upon my personal and professional relationships as of late. It's got me to wondering what happened to such and such and why have I put up with his/her shit for so long. I've arrived at some weird answers. For instance, I've realized that a friend of mine that absolutely annoys the shit out of me has shown me my strengths in her weakness, as well as my weaknesses in her strengths. I guess it's a classic case of give and take. She still drives me crazy, but I can semi-overlook the annoyance when I look at the pay off. Another friend of mine betrayed my trust to the infinity power. I vowed to never talk to her again. She, however, resurfaced in my life and like a virus, won't go away. I realized that we actually have a great time whenever we go out or socialize. We create our own "club" within a club, or our own "event" within an event. We can truly forget our troubles together. I had to learn a lesson of forgiveness with this one. I'm sure she took something away from the ordeal as well. What? Who Knows? I would hope that anyone I've interacted with, has walked away with of piece of me. (Not like that, so get your minds out the gutter). I mean some kind of lesson or take-away from our interaction with one another. I know that there is something I've taken from everyone. Whether it was a lesson in paitence or a class on overcoming, I've taken something away. Now, as for the relationship side. I don't know where to begin. That's an ever evolving lesson. I think I'm fit to teach some and learn some. My ex's are all that for a reason, but I have been able to maintain some form of a relationship with them all. Althouth some may be bordering non-existence, there is some form of cordiality there. I've learned about the emotional weight of the human heart and the cause/effects of infidelity, to name a few. There is a laundry list there that I will have to get to at another date/time. Until the next time...
