Down goes Frazier

You didn’t have to stoop so low… Guess that I don’t need that though. Now your just somebody that I used to know. (Gotye)

Remember when you found out there was no Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy weren’t real either. If you were anything like me, you felt a little less than genuine towards those who had perpetrated the fraud for so many years. As I grew up, I realized that it wasn’t about the image itself but the fact that it was about having faith. Well, the same thing can be, I believe applied to friendships, work relationships, etc. It can be pretty disheartening when a situation occurs and the behavior and actions of another are in complete contrast to what you would have ever expected. Oh, I see. We aren’t what I thought we were. We aren’t at a place where judgment and criticism have no place, instead you seat them at the head of our table and allow them to devour me as the main course. How naïve of me to think that after X amount of years that while we are by no means BFFs, being Fs was definitely in the forefront of my mind. Guess that F has now been replaced by F and S. Anytime there are cracks in a ship, they should be addressed quickly unless it is a ship that is beyond repair and collecting the insurance money is the best way to go. I’m pretty much known for trying to keep the peace, but sometimes peace just needs to be peace, as in deuces. I was taken aback and hurt by the response but as the word teaches, so a man thinketh, so is he in his heart. My husband had to explain the term Monday Morning Quarterbacking to me a while ago and that is not something one should ever do. If ever presented a problem or dilemma by someone, I would hope that you would have enough compassion to hear the person, listen to what they were saying and offer some sound and encouraging words. Not share what you would have done. Having received that negative response from you, I know now what I should have done and what I will do from now on; never consult you on anything every again. Don’t be THAT person. If you don’t want to be helpful, politely say so, but why belittle the person with what they already know. Don’t stoop so low because a blow like that can cause a weaker person to be down for the count. @notbrokenjustbent
