Good News, Bad News

It’s been a hor­ri­ble few days in one respect, and beau­ti­ful in another.

On Sun­day, I learned that my trust had been thor­ough­ly betrayed by two peo­ple. One of them has owned up to the issues and is active­ly work­ing to resolve them. And one has some­how decid­ed that I and the oth­er par­ty are to blame for all things. It’s amaz­ing what guilt can do, espe­cial­ly with a per­son who isn’t par­tic­u­lar­ly ratio­nal in the first place. When one con­sid­ers that I’ve done absolute­ly noth­ing to even try to harm this per­son or seek some pet­ty revenge, it’s tru­ly sad to see what she’s doing. 

Clue: I do believe that what goes around comes around and that I don’t need to seek revenge. Call it kar­ma, or the rule of three, or what­ev­er you like. She’s bring­ing hor­ri­ble things to her­self, sim­ply by being who and what she is. It may take time, but it will hap­pen. I can only hope that her part­ner and child aren’t affect­ed too bad­ly by it.

On the oth­er hand, two peo­ple with whom we were build­ing friend­ships have pulled much clos­er in sup­port, and are def­i­nite­ly fam­i­ly at this point. I feel very loved.

So—one per­son who pre­tend­ed to be a friend has been revealed as a snake. I’m work­ing through issues with anoth­er per­son that are very dif­fi­cult but seem like­ly to strength­en that rela­tion­ship in the long run. I’ve gained two beau­ti­ful peo­ple in my fam­i­ly. On bal­ance, I have to say that I real­ly am blessed.
