One of the best

So my worst human characteristic is seen below, but I think there are lots of good ones. One of the best is being able to tuck your tail between your legs and say you're sorry. This is one I have never been good at, but I'm working. Well, the winner of the worst characteristic contest also has the best! :) I got a call yesterday with an "I'm sooooo sorry" and an "I didn't even think about what I said until you drove away". Like I said, there are a lot of good qualities that people can have, and I am glad that one of my best friends has one of the best human traits.
(Oh, and for the record, it is not typical that he flake like he did in the previous post.)

Keep dragging the dog!

Why do people care?
Sure, I had a crappy relationship. I think everyone has had one of those; maybe even two. It was horrible in the end. I’ll admit it! But, when it was good, it was great. I loved the great parts and I am struggling (we both are) to keep the great parts without the “relationship” part. Strangely enough, it is working in small doses. I think it is because we are both holding on to the intense pain that we felt when it was bad. (Well, I know I am, but I can’t speak for him.) Not only is my wall back up, it is thicker than ever.
What I don’t get is that everyone, EVERYONE has an opinion about it. Now some people are keeping it to themselves, but the ones that aren’t were a problem in the first place. Why do people not want their friends to be happy? I understand a quizzical look, a “do you remember when..”, or a “well, I don’t like it, but if you do” once or twice, but being obnoxious is just 6th grade! Maybe it is because they are miserable that their life didn’t end up the way they thought. Maybe they are finding it harder to control someone than they thought it would be. I don’t really know, but simply let us do what we want to do. I can’t explain why it works, but if I could, I don’t feel like I need to explain it to an ass hat like you!
