Like any female, I occasionally enjoy some gossip, maybe a little drama. Not so much being involved in it, as sitting back and watching it go down and giggling at the ridiculousness of it.
Since becoming a Mommy, I have had a hell of a lot less drama in my personal life. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that I just don’t get out as much (or hardly at all if you want to be specific).. I honestly don’t mind. Getting involved in petty squabbles and stupid girl fights is just not at the top of my priority list these days. Obviously I have much better and more important things to do with my time. That, and I just feel too old for that crap. It’s not as enjoyable as it was in my younger years, i’d rather avoid it altogether.
For a while now, i’ve done really well at just keeping myself away from people who seem to radiate drama.. until this past week.
The first situation is not so inflammatory as it is just stupid and immature. A girl who was once my best friend and even a bridesmaid in my wedding has not been returning my calls or messages or texts.. or any form of communication i’ve tried getting in contact with her through. Not for just a week or two, but for months. This just doesn’t seem normal. Yes, she is the type who swims in drama constantly even though she claims to “hate it”, she seems to be attracted to it.. but as far as I know there is no problem between us to make her ignore me.
I am not exactly the type to let a sleeping dog lie, so of course I felt the need to confront the situation. Not even to stir up drama, as I didn’t think there was anything to stir. I let her know (pretty nicely if I must say) that I didn’t understand why she wasn’t responding to me, that it hurts mt feelings, etc etc.
She read my email and didn’t even bother responding. THANKS!
I’m really just done. I’m not going to beg someone to be my friend. I don’t need her in my life. I have all that I need. No use crying about it, obviously if she can’t be bothered to even respond to an email from someone who is supposed to be a friend.. she isn’t worth the hassle in the first place.
Situation number two.. Good God. It has to be the most ridiculous, stupid situation ever. I won’t go into complete specifics.. but there is a member of a board I frequent who for some reason really has it out for me. Every chance she gets, she accuses me of the STUPIDEST crap i’ve ever heard. I don’t know if it’s just a need to be a bitch to someone.. or just plain paranoia, but it’s completely ridiculous. I can’t even respond to it anymore.. I should really laugh at the situation, it’s that dumb, but I have to admit it gets under my skin. Especially being accused of things i’m not doing, when I consider myself to be an incredibly bluntly honest person.
You know what they say when someone keeps accusing another person of something they aren’t doing, right? That the accusee is actually the one doing these wrong things. it works that way in relationships when someone’s cheating. They get paranoid as hell and start accusing their siginificant other of cheating when they’re the one who’s doing it.
It’d be one thing if this chick were a teenager.. I might be able to let it slide as just plain immaturity.. but she’s a 30-something mom. I’m sure she has better things to be doing then causing drama on a messageboard full of people she doesn’t even know in real life about shit that doesn’t even matter in real life. It’s just beyond stupid.
Y’know, I really dislike this analogy but it seems to work here:
Fighting online is like competing in the special olympics. Even if you win, you’re still retarded.
People really need to get lives.
I’m so over petty bullshit, especially when it makes zero sense and I can do nothing but sit back and blink my eyes in confusion at how stupid, malicious and ridiculous grown adults can be. I thought only my family could be that way. ZING!
You wouldn't sniff a stranger's butt to see who pooped their pants.... so you probably shouldn't do these other parental things to strangers, either. holdinholden.com/2017/12/weir…

You know that feeling when you don't chew a chip all the way and it cuts you all the way down and you swear it's gonna kill you, but you go ahead have another right after? That's what it's like when you decide to have another kid.
