Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

Betrayed

Wow.

Just ... wow.

I feel like someone kicked me in the stomach about a thousand times.

You think if someone screws you over enough times, it's enough. That there aren't any other ways you can be screwed over, because it's been there, done that. You've seen it all. The problem is forgetting that when people know you well--know you really, really well--and when they know you care about them, they can find all kinds of new ways to screw you over. And then they will. Because, apparently, some people get off on hurting people who care about them.

I hope you don't know any of those people.

I've no idea what happened, but it sounds rough, and I'm so sorry that you're dealing with it.

Hope today is better...

That's just beyond horrible, and I'm really sorry to hear you're having to go through that. I know it sounds trite, especially from a fellow blogger probably in a different city, but I'm definitely here for you.

Thank you, you guys :) It's bad. It's really, really bad. I have never been so hurt in my entire life.

Buuuuuut ... as the lovely Gloria Gaynor once said, I will survive :)

I had something happen to me that made me feel this way just a few months ago. The two people who I was closest to in the world completely betrayed me. (Mostly.)

And that kind of thing is just the worst feeling, the worst experience, that a person could have. I'm sorry you're going through something like that.

What helped me through was knowing that I have the power. I get to decide if I allow people like this in my life, I get to choose whether or not I let them hurt me again.

I hope you find what helps you through!

OH NO THEY DINNIT. Someone is messing with My swishy, and I don't like it. Not one bit. Just tell me who it is and I will go beat them up for you. Seriously. I do it for my kids all the time and it really works. think about it.

and think about this.....You don't DESERVE to be hurt or betrayed. You are a wonderful, caring, funny, wise woman who has so much to give to the people around her. screw them. Don't let some hellbent heart leave you bitter...as that one country singer says....Womack somethin or other...

Love you Swish

Swish--I'm off to IM you. I obviously have an idea. Bastard. And who cares. Not him.

 
At 12:22 PM, Blogger Jenster said...

Aw, Swish. I'm so sorry. People like that are miserable people. And yeah, I think patti's right. We all know people like that.

I wish I could make it better. :o)

some people suck.

sorry.

Nice people attract mean people. It's like Murphy's Law or something. So run! And run fast..far far far away..hide behind a tree, go into a rabbit hole. It doesn't make it better but all the rest of the nice people are hidden there too. The mean ones are too dumb to look there, they wait and prey on the poor deer stuck in the headlights and take aim.

Mean people suck. Betrayal sucks. Getting the shit knocked out of you because of other peoples actions suck.

Swishy, there are some right bastards out there who get off on hurting others. But I believe in karma and this person will get what's coming to them.

Hang in there.

pfffft. A pox on the bastard. May his or her genitals break into nasty boils. May they meet someone important and have those spit blobs in the corner of their mouth and toilet paper on their shoe, may they take a deep drink of milk only to discover it is months old, may the get a nasty canker sore on their tongue and have a dentist who has vision problems and pokes them repeatedly in their gums with sharp pointy objects.

that should cover it. Mess with my swishy.. and we'll get ya.

Eileen, this is great! Evil great!

I'm on the phone with Swish right now. She's all good!

Wow, what a week you've had! Snakes, WalMart idiots, discounts for cleavage (yeah, that was pretty good) and now someone's rained on your parade? Sic the snake on 'em!

 
At 8:27 PM, Blogger Swishy said...

Oh, you guys are making me cry! But good tears. I am so lucky to have the nicest people in the whole world reading my blog. Thank you all so, so much.

People suck. Kick whoever it is to the curb.

Swishy, I don't know you but I do know the feeling of hurt. Let me at whoever did this, I am freakishly strong and tough as nails.

Just keep your chin up and read blogs. There are some funny bloggers out there and they do help.

I will think good thoughts for you.

I hate those people. Remember, you are nobody's fool, don't let someone with a shit-ass code of how to treat people make you feel less than -- that person needs to go sit on it and rotate.

Hope you feel better!!!!!!!!! PS:The Dawson's Creek K-Mart eisode is classic :-) It's the little things that make the day easier, isn't it?

Oh no! I feel for you. Things will be better! Dawson's Creek can heal so much!

Sadly, there are douche bags out there like that. And I might know some NFL football players who will kick this person's ass.

I'm just saying. I'm here to help.

Hang in there!

Hey swish,

I'm late to this (I'm SOOOO behind in my blog reading b/c I've been on the road so much), but I hope that things are better for you now. Hang in there!

Allison
