Funny how life can be, hey.... "Expect the unexpected" as the saying goes.... Well, "unexpected" is the understatement of my year. "Unexpected" drop-kicked me in the teeth last week. "Unexpected" has crushed my soul, and sadly, there is no recovery from this one....
My best friend (of more than 35 years!), and my boyfriend, are no longer either of those things to me. Without getting into details, let me say that I will never, ever understand how two people, whom I respected and loved, could be so deceptive and hurtful towards me. My mind is swimming in bewilderment and my heart is broken, as I'm not sure what I did to deserve being handed the ultimate betrayal. I did not see it coming, at all. Wow. Just.... wow.
So.... While I am still processing the events that have transpired and have no survival tips to provide at the moment, I'm certain I will eventually figure out how to extract this giant knife from my heart (and the other one from my back), and I am confident I will heal from the wounds and move on. But I will do so with two fewer people in my world, which right now feels pretty devastating to me.
