if you have to make shit up in your head
to justify your actions...
then the friendship was never real...
people need to take responsibility for their own bullshit
and stop blaming everyone else
for their stupidity
i'm tired of being the blame...
i'm tired of being their punching bag...
when i come out swinging...trust me its gonna be ugly!!!

LAST NIGHT AT ABOUT 2.15AM..I WAS JARRED OUT OF MY SLEEP BY OUR HUSKY SHAYLA CRYING OUT IN SOME KIND OF PAIN.
MY FAMILY (LITERALLY ENTIRE FAMILY) IS CAMPING THIS WEEKEND AND ABOUT 2 HOURS AWAY...
I LOOKED OUT THE WINDOW AND SAW THAT OUR BELOVED SIBERIAN HUSKY WAS LAYING ON THE GROUND BESIDE THE HOUSE IN A POSITION THAT WAS NOT NORMAL FOR HER AND THE CRIES SHE WAS LETTING OUT WAS SOMETHING I HAD NEVER HEARD. AFRAID OF BEING OUTSIDE ALONE IN THE BACK YARD (YES I'M CHICKEN..) I CALLED MY SISTER AND THE EMERGENCY VET HOSPITAL WHO TOLD ME I NEEDED TO BRING HER IN...WELL DUH!!! BUT HOW DO YOU LIFT A 50LB DOG WHO MIGHT BE IN PAIN AND PUT HER IN YOUR CAR ALONE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT...RIGHT? THEY PASSED ME A PHONE NUMBER FOR A.M.E.R.S. ( http://www.animalmedics.com/ )
ANYWAYS...SHAYLA PASSED ABOUT AN HOUR BEFORE THEY ARRIVED. IT SEEMS THEY ARE THE ONLY EMERGENCY AMBULANCE IN THE AREA AND IT WAS ATLEAST 45 MINUTES AWAY AND AT ANOTHER CALL...ARRIVING AT 4.30...THEY CHECKED HER, AND TOOK HER WITH THEM...
IRONICALLY, THE OWNER OF THIS COMPANY IS AN OLD HIGHSCHOOL FRIEND OF MINE AND I'M SO GRATEFUL THAT IT WAS SOMEONE I KNEW WHO TOOK CARE OF OUR DOG...
SHAYLA WAS BROUGHT TO US AS A RESCUE DOG 15 YEARS AGO...SHE HAD BEEN BEATEN BY HER PREVIOUS OWNER BUT HAD AN AMAZING SPIRIT AND WONDERFUL TEMPERMENT. SHE COMPLETELY ADORED MY FATHER AND WILL BE SORELY MISSED IN OUR BACK YARD AND HOME. SHE WAS OUR PROTECTOR, OUR FAMILY AND NOW SHE IS GONE AND IN HEAVEN WITH OUR MANY OTHER PETS THAT HAVE PASSED OVER THE YEARS.
LOSING HER LAST NIGHT MADE ME REALIZE AGAIN HOW IMPORTANT OUR PETS ARE TO US AND HOW MUCH THEY ARE A PART OF OUR FAMILY. I CAN'T IMAGINE WHAT I WILL GO THROUGH THE DAY I LOSE MY DIVA...LOSING MY CAT 3 YEARS AGO HURT TERRIBLY. MY PARENTS ARE EXTREMELY SAD AS THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO BE THERE WITH HER IN HER FINAL MOMENTS.
ANYWAS, THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO ME RAMBLE...BEEN A VERY LONG NIGHT AND NOW I'M AT WORK...I'M EXHAUSTED, EXTREMELY SAD AND JUST NEEDED A PLACE TO VENT A LIL..
HUG YOUR FURBABIES..AND LET THEM KNOW HOW SPECIAL THEY ARE...EVEN AFTER THEY HAVE TINKLED ONTHE CARPET, CHEWED UP A BRAND NEW SHOE OR STOLEN YOUR SANDWICH...

“that a man can change himself…and master his own destiny is the conclusion of every mind who is wide awake to the power of the right thought.”
Christian D Larson (1866-1954)
So tired of people who continuously play victim...
Continuously blame others for their sadness, their issues and the reasons why things go bad...
It ALWAYS takes two people to make things work or go bad....
But making someone constantly feel guilty because they couldn't be the friend you wanted them to be..
is unfair and truthfully...selfish...
I'm not a perfect friend, I never even pretended to be. But I will not be deemed this horrible friend who couldn't stand by someone who needed more then my friendship to help them mend. I won't have that kind of responsibility laid on my shoulders. If that makes me selfish, I’m sorry but when did being a friend consist of having someones life consume yours making your life feel unimportant? My priority in life is make sure that I can make me happy!!! Making sure I can make my life a better place, and make sure that I take the proper steps to ensure my own happiness, and creat the future I want and to be sure that my friends never have to feel like I'm a burden to them and know that no matter what I do accept them 100%. But when I become a burden to them then there is a problem.
I have always been a type of person that doesn't live in negativity. I mean we always have days when life throws you curve balls and you can stand there and say I hate my life but those are few and far between. I have always been optimistic about life and about people. I don't look for the bad in people and surely try not to dwell on the past and the what ifs. How can I allow people in my life that want to love me, are optomistic on life if I can love me and try and have a bright outlook on life if I can’t be that way.
I look at things this way...Regardless of anything that has gone on here is how i want to live my life...
make plans for myself
expect the most from myself
have faith in me
keep all all my promises to myself
always trust myself
believe in myself
fall in love with me and who I am inside and out...
I won't be made to feel guilty about how I feel or be made out to be a bad guy or play the victim. We are all in charge of our own destiny...its out responsiblity. So yet again I take responsiblity for maybe not being the "right" friend but I won't feel bad about making myself priority! I am choosing my destiny and thats to make sure that my life goes according to my plan and not get sucked down by BS.
*steps off soap box....sweeps the bullshit out the door ...and enjoys life

So much has been going on and its thrown my very content world into a turmoil. WTF!!!!
I’ve come to accept that my friendship with them is over…but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt tremendously. I found myself picking up the phone to call them the other day and burst into tears. They were someone that I shared everyone with. But after the last “convo” …I can’t bring myself to do it. I don’t know that I can forgive the words, the harshness of their words to me. Because I know I am not any of those things and I don’t believe I did anything wrong unless wanting some peace is wrong. I do wish them the best of everything regardless of what they may or may not think of me. I never wished them any harm or anything . I'm just not the right friend for them and I think everyone has the right to say. “I don’t want any drama in my world, enough with the negativity.” I think its ok to say that, I think in order for us to stay positive in an already negative world, it takes a lot of work and sometimes it takes us to clean out the negative and the stuff that is bringing us down to make the change.
I hope that the demise of our friendship helps them find the happiness they want and deserve. I hope they are able to find peace with their past and their current relationships and I hope they find forgiveness for some of us that can’t be the persons they wanted us to be.
I have to pick myself up by the boot straps, continue to make the changes that I am making in my life, no matter how hard it is.
I need to remember these words
God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.
