Those people, the ones that
will be there for you, drive across the state in the middle of the night
for a 3½ hours one way. You know the ones, those people in your
life that will come through on a momentís notice. Never judge you on what
you do or think; accept you no matter what. You know those people. What,
you donít have any people like that in your life? Hell, I know I donít.
But I have gone above and
beyond the call of duty when it comes to doing for some people. Husbands,
wives, lovers and kids get the worst of this treatment. You are either
walkiní on them or they are walkiní on you (come on be honest!). Parents
are treating their kids worse than people that they donít like. They would
never think of not speaking to their kids. Friends have to be really close
to entering this arena.
I have let lovers use me
for adoormat, but when they stop to wipe their feetÖ do they think that
this is a territorial right? What side of this are you on? You can
never be the victim because that would mean that the other party has done
something to you in some way. That is why there are 3 sides to every story,
your side, my side and the truth.
We are mostly big brats trying
to manipulate to get our way. Unfortunately the manipulator is usually
unaware; the habit begins so early in life. We never ask directly.
We spend time on the thing that makes you do the thing that they really
wanted. But you canít convince them they do thisÖand southern women are
the best and consider it a way of life. Trust me you will never convince
them, well almost never, not too many married couples agree to disagree
so this is really an uneasy place.
The more familiar we are
with somebody the more we work them. We feel that knowing them gives
us the edge, the ability to build a better mousetrap if you will. If I
lose this then so-and-so will find it or if I drop this then so-and-so
will pick it up! What do you call this when you use it to show-off to your
friends? So where is the line that separates enough is enough. Why is it
so different with people?
Acceptance is whether or
not you fit into certain criteria, imagine then it must not really be acceptance.
I only should not accept you after you give me reason or your assholicness
provides you with a crown that is visible from day one. Naw-mean!!!
