On numerous occasions I’ve talked about the ex effect. I feel like some of my best writing comes from it too. It’s a time when I have to be really real and honest about past relationships and true feelings. Although I know some of those feelings aren’t right, they are raw and they are real.
The question I have is what do you do when you really don’t wish people well? I mean you’re not wishing them any harm, but you really don’t want to hear about their successes. When it comes to my exes, I really don’t want to hear about their new jobs. I really would rather not know that they’re dating someone new.
I don’t want to hear or know anything about what they’re doing. I don’t want to need their help, and I don’t want anyone I know to need their help. I don’t want my family to need their help and I don’t want my friends to need their help.
I don’t want to know anything about them.
What do you do when you get to that point? How do you get past that? How do you get to a place where you hear about them or you hear about their successes and you acknowledge it and move on?
Like I said, I don’t wish anyone any harm. But when I pray for blessings for other people, let’s face it, they aren’t at the top of my list. They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. For the sake of a few out there, I sure hope that’s not true.
