I have so much going on in my brain right now that I don’t even know what to say. There are so many words and thoughts and feelings, I cant seem to wrap my head around them all. But it has to come out, or I will explode. And yet, I have no idea how I’m going to do that.
I think back on a quote I read once:
Just start. And then don’t stop.
So maybe that’s what I should do. Just start typing and then don’t stop.
I recently lost a friend. Or two. Or none. I guess it all depends on the way you look at the situation. Because friends wouldn’t have treated each other the way we all did. Deceit and lies are never a good combination especially when there are so many you can’t keep track.
I could tell my side of the story. But really, in this tellanovella, there are no “sides”. I could tell just my part, but I know, in the end that won’t work. All of the parts are interconnected and one piece can’t be told without the others. And while I haven’t been the best person lately, I’m also not in the habit of telling other people’s stories and parts.
I know that everyone affected by this…mess…can read this. And there’s a high level of probability that they are going to. You can’t block people from blogs like you can Facebook and Instagram. So why write it at all? Because honestly, why not. At some point we all have to face our demons and I guess there is no better time to do so than right now.
I’m a victim, no doubt about it. But I’m also the worst perpetrator in this scenario as well. I bet you didn’t expect that, did you? And not that it matters or makes any ounce of difference, I’m taking the blame. Hell, I’ll take it all if it makes everyone feel better. Not to be a martyr, but simply for this chapter in my life to be over and closed.
When all is said and done, no one got what they wanted. And no one is happy with that outcome. But here we are. Forever connected in this tragedy when all we want to do is move further and further away from each other.
My heart literally aches. It aches for me. And for my friend (though I guess that’s not really a term I can use anymore). And just for everything.
But it is what it is.
