When someone shows you who they are, believe them. If there is a nagging thought in your mind or heart about someone it’s because that is God’s way of trying to help you. I think I’ve finally learned. Took 38 years, but finally learned.
And no, this has nothing to do with the show. Gus and I had a perfectly lovely time. The weather was gorgeous, and the show was fun. I had a very interesting moment when I realized that this lifestyle change was actually going to work for me. We ended up eating at Subway (um, hello? I’m on a practically no-carb diet and we go to where there is bread and chips) due to necessity. I got a salad with some weird things on it and the Subway man (not Jared, but the man making my salad) really thought I was bizarre when I asked for a splash of olive oil and nothing else on it (can’t have Balsamic vinegar on the
diet lifestyle change). I had lettuce, spinach, pickles (honest to God), green peppers, banana peppers, and grilled chicken. AND IT WAS GREAT! It was really great! Everything tasted good. My taste buds might actually be changing, and that’s a totally bizarre, wild, beautiful, and fascinating to me.
So that was the good.
Then came the after when I finally learned the final lesson about the final person who will “do me wrong” in the romantic relationship sort of way. I found out his true character, and it’s not anything I need to be around. The phrases “what goes around comes around”, “karma is a bitch”, and “you reap what you sow” kept twirling in my brain. I forgot one. “Liar, liar, pants on fire” too.
I feel nothing but pity. I did nothing wrong, and I’m moving forward. Thank you, God, for putting a spotlight on the situation because obviously the matchstick, candle, flashlight, campfire, and lamp were not enough for me to see. I had to be shown in my face, once and for all, who this person is. I needed to hear the person say “So what if I lied?”
This is a blessing, and I will treat it as such, because I’ve been on the fence for weeks about someone who doesn’t deserve one more second of my time.
Onward and upward, my friends! Onward and upward!
And now, to sleep.
