Authenticity


In my book of life…

The chapter is closed.

It’s a brand new day. My responsibilities to myself, to my children, to my employer are the background to my life. Taking care of me by removing the negative components that have tried to ruin me for the past thirteen months or so has been done. I learned more about me & my character and values in the past year than in all my years married. I got a good dose of who I never want in my life again. But I also got a good dose of who I never want missing from my life.

The negative. Coming to terms with the fact that I have been used and lied to by someone that supposedly loved & cared for me. It’s extremely painful.
And the positive. Knowing that I will never allow myself to be misled by lies like that again. Appreciating the people in my life that are authentic. Loving the one’s that were there to just listen & let me cry and that tried to help me see his real intentions without ever wanting anything but my friendship in return. These people will pull me through and be there always.

I am going to do my best to follow my rule to treat others how I want to be treated. And if I don’t receive back from that person what I give, get rid of them, close that chapter and move on. Don’t allow 13 months to pass before that chapter is forced to close. I am also going to do my best to look at my actions & how I treat others before expecting more than I give.

Life is Good!

What doesn’t kill me only makes me stronger!

  1. Thank you Alex. Your apology is accepted. 🙂

    I just listened to your message and I appreciate very much the things you said. It’s nice to know someone reads this stuff and absorbs it. Especially a long time friend. 🙂

    See you soon. 😉
