There is a person in my life that I have known for over twenty years. I won’t mention names because sometimes friends and family read my blog.
I have been this person’s friend through all kinds of bad times, me usually being on the receiving end of hurt and disappointment. I am not able to remove this person from my life, although I want to.
This person can be nice and kind and great and wonderful. All of a sudden, this person turns into a completely different person. Bouts of depression? I don’t know. But this person is mean and nasty and makes snide remarks. No one wants to be around this person. There is no cause for this person’s treatment of others. In other words, this person is not provoked in any way.
This person snubs education, which I can not stand. It could be because this person was not able to go to college, but they certainly could take part time classes Now. Alas, this person Refuses to do Anything to better oneself.
I used to try to ‘fix’ this person. I gave up on that years ago. All it did was cause me undue stress.I have noticed that this person’s Dark Days (what I call them) are becoming more frequent.
The only thing I can do is remove myself from this person as much as possible because when the Darkness comes there is meanness and I get hurt….so sad…..
