Win Some, Lose Some

One of the hardest things about the way my life has changed is the way people have reacted to me over the past year and a half. Apparently I can't do much right, 'cause people seem to be awfully mad at me...

My one "friend" who I supported through the worst, most unimaginable sorrow, decided I wasn't worthy of his friendship anymore. Apparently I was supposed to ignore all my divorce hearing dates and my one child leaving for basic training while the other was going off to college, just to pay him a visit 7 hours away? Oh well...

My other so-called friends from recent years couldn't have been more invisible than they were. And to think how happy I was to make new "friends". Whatever...

The worst though, are the ones who I have known for 30+ years. Don't get me wrong. There are several friends who I have that kind of "pick up where we left off" kind of relationship. Then there are those who never, ever called me to hear my side of the story. Content they must have been to hear his belligerent need to be right. blah blah...

Whatever. I am making a new path for myself. Meeting new people and, more importantly, having the respect of my daughters which is more than I can say for a lot of people. I am glad to have all those in my life who have stuck by me. You will know who you are always, because I will remind you how much you mean to me. In my own way.


  1. I've always thought that it's more important to have a small group of those friends who will always be there for you rather than a large circle that come and go like the clouds on a windy day. It also means you don't have to waste your energy on keeping up with those cloudy friends. If they breeze in, fine. If they don't, fine.

  2. I agree 100%. I sure have learned a lot about people through all this. And I've learned to let go of quite a few of them. Every once in a while though I feel a bit hurt. Oh well, it is what it is..

    1. If you don't respond to me in the next 20 years, I will know you don't want me as a friend anymore! Love Mike P.

  3. If that was me you are talking about that is so untrue! I never got mad at you for not coming up here! I never expected you to! Just hoping you might want to get away for a while knowing the hell you were dealing with. I have always been there for you too! I only defriended you on FB (not my life) because you weren't replying much to me,in emails,fb or even the old blog,! You know how I feel about you and have always tried to see you or even talk on the phone to you! It's not easy for me to be only a computer FB ,email friend with you! I haven't seen you in years or even heard your voice! I just thought you wanted to move on from me and maybe I was bugging you! I defriended you only to prevent myself from being tempted to chat with you at night,again because I thought I was bugging you. I am have always been here for you! So when you coming up for a visit? Love Mike Passarelli
