Ugh. She seemed nice when I met her but something in her eyes told me she was the way you described her...has she ever said anything bad about me? Don't get back at her (at least not in violence)...it only makes things worse. I'm sorry you have to go through this...
Just keep swimming, swimming...(sorry I'm watching Finding Nemo...)
Awwww, that quote made me laugh out loud! Thank you, I needed to hear that :) Dory's inspirational.
And yeah, that's another thing that upsets me. She's perfectly nice and bubbly and funny whenever someone else is around, or whenever anyone calls. She's even been saying good things about me to her numerous relatives. But that's because it's all part of her illusion of normalcy, which makes it even creepier. But naw, the only thing she ever said bad about you was when I was talking about what cool friends you and Josh and Mary were, and she was all, "but can't you have any NORMAL, capable friends for once?". Yeah. That boiled my kettle, to say the least...as in, I wanted to smack her with one...but yeah, you're right. Violence is not good and if I resorted to it, she'd get more satisfaction.
You know what amuses me?
Once you're gone, Linda will lose her scapegoat. What's going to happen to her as a result?
Once she has nobody to bully, she'll probably turn into a pathetic whimperling.
Meanwhile, you'll be in a better place, with a better life, better love, and will be a stronger, more confident woman all round because of her.
Serves her right.
Oh my gosh!
That works, that's true! Oooo...thank you m'dear!
I was thinking somewhat along those same lines last night, but sleep and Biology apparently drove that nice thought from me.
And yeah...I think that in a way, she has been good for me. She's made me wiser, and more in tune to what I must never become. And also, she's made me realize that I LIKE myself so much more than she ever could, and I think I needed to engage in the act of standing up for myself through knowing that I'm finally a good person and I'm not going to let that go, EVER.
(...if any of that made sense, lol)
Next time that happens just stop...Dont even tell yourself anything in your head...try to clear your mind and just take deep breaths...hopefully you'll calm down...
...and then RIGHT BEFORE you leave that place...EXPLODE ON HER...let her know exactly what you think of her and how she acts...you'll get the last word in and then be off to happy times with "The Ari"
Yeah, I have no idea why that didn't work last time, but it really didn't. My chest refused to stop beating, yet my mind was perfectly fine. It kinda worried me...
Haha, good idea. I'll get back at her in some fashion. Though, I expect it will be more subtle and clever than anything else. Even if she doesn't notice, it will make me feel better anyhow. I don't want to stoop down to her level by exploding back.
To agree with palmer_kun. Once you leave, she loses all power over you. You want to get back at her with HUMONGOUS SATISFACTION? Walk out of that house, into Ari's arm, happy, anew, and free. THAT will get her goat good. Once you leave, my dear, she no longer has the power over yout o make you feel like crap.
And so she bitches about you, and curses up a storm about you while you're gone. So what? YOU won't BE there. :-D
In my opinion, sometimes bitter satisfaction can be good. Besides, you ARE satisfied to be with Ari and all the good things to come. No one will fault you if you secretly giggle evilly to yourself about leaving her ass behind. lol
Hahaha. I like this comment! :)
And strangely enough, I concluded the same thing at the end of my response to your previous comment. It does seem like the best thing to do, and the most satisfying! *giggles evilly* lol.
