… Or is it “two wrongs make a right” … oh wait! “Two wrong don’t make a right…”
Silly colloquialisms … all with kernels of truth.
The two I will concentrate on now are:
- Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
- If you love something, set it free. If it returns to you, it’s yours. If not, it was never meant to be.
Number 1 – I call Bullsh*T! More like outta sight, outta mind. Despite being in a long term relationship built on trust and mutual respect, part of what keeps us together is well being together. Long distance relationships work for some … sure they do … but in my experience – absence does not make the heart grow fonder. Most of us live in the moment … what is right here NOW … in front of our faces.
Number 2 – uh ya, no. First of all, this implies ownership. Not sure about you but the idea of being kept, is not love. It’s yours … really … are we talking about a human being? And I used to love this quote … school girl crush happy me … and I did this too in high school, before Billy Bob and I were more than just friends. My first true love … let’s call him Kermit. And I cried like a baby and my friends told me it was for the best. Buh bye, see ya … and he never came back. So you’ll say … well that proves it Jilly it wasn’t meant to be.
I had a point when I started this … a point that has escaped me. I guess I am just frustrated. I thought I could get over this and I will shortly. With every word I type, I am further from the sadness. It was second hand sadness anyway. I just have one question, why you gotta be so rude? Don’t you know she’s human too?
I hope when you fall off your high horse, and mark my words, you will fall … when that happens … I hope you break your face!
As always, more to come …
