30 Days of Truth Day 10: Who do I need to let go?

This is Day 10 of the 30 Days of Truth series. (Day 12345678 | 9).

Who is someone I need to let go or wish I didn’t know?

The last toxic person in my life exited with a flash, heading west and leaving her past behind her as quickly as she possibly could.  Can I say that I wish I never knew her?  No, that would be unfair to the lessons that I learned.

I learned that if you have a friend who tells you the deepest, darkest, nastiest secrets of all her “best” friends who live in other locations, she is doing the same to you.

I learned that priding yourself on hating other people behind their backs while you’re sweet to their faces means that you have a rotten peach pit of a heart.

I learned that you can spend over $20,000 without getting any effort or consideration in return and have the abject laziness and lack of ability on the recipient’s end be interpreted as manipulation and a selfish act on my end.

In the end, this was someone I needed to let go.  I didn’t realize it early enough, and it resulted in a betrayal at the deepest level I’ve ever experienced, but, it doesn’t mean that I wish I didn’t know her.  It happened for a reason, and my life is cleaner, better, and healthier as a result.

Although, there is another person, in my life right now, who I do need to cut out.  Her words are permanently echoing in my head, and she’s an extremely bad influence on me.  The more I try to avoid thinking about her, the more I can’t stop.  I see her pictures everywhere, and her name comes up constantly.  I need to quit her.  I’m talking, of course, about Ke$ha.

  1. Since this is 30 days of truth, I gotta ask for your truth here. Did you write this and mean it that you (still, omg) need to let her go, or did you write this out of sheer spite and have really already let her go? Cuz I’m leaning toward the latter.
    I mean, don’t you ever brush your teeth with a bottle of Jack, you trashy bitch?

    1. @Karen Sugarpants, I wasn’t doing it out of spite or saying that I still need to let her go. As I said, that was the last time someone in my life needed to go – I don’t have anyone now that is like that.

    1. @Josette,
      Oh my word! Never heard of her. What’s up with children becoming singing stars? Bad enough with Ke$ha and others of her ilk. Yikes!!

  2. I know the person referenced here but don’t know why you’re this upset at her, as I don’t know the story. I don’t think I want to know.

    I need to let go of Bear Bryant. The Tide just hasn’t been as good since he quit coaching our team and then died a few days later.

  3. I think I knew your $20,000 woman’s evil soulmate. Although it sort of sucks that we learn through pain, I’m liking the awesome I’ve become as a result. Maybe I should put a random dollar sign in my name somewhere?
