After I wrote my status a few minutes ago, I decided to write a bit about it. Earlier in the week I had mentioned that I was pretty sure that I had the best girlfriend ever and then the week ended on a low note. When bad things transpire and ultimately get resolved, I always say I learned a lot about myself, but how can that be if I already knew what I “learned”? Well, sometimes you know it, but you forget it until it’s too late.
With that said, I did learn one thing this week: trying to always be right and/or attempting to force someone into thinking along your lines does nothing for the situation except make people wonder what your true intentions are: either to force change on people or to make them feel bad enough about themselves to want to change.
Most people in these situations would run for cover out of a natural human response of needing to protect one’s self. As it turned out, she did run…but to the park; and took me with her.
It was thought that an everyday lunch appearance would not suffice and so there we were; lying on the grass, playing a game I hadn’t seen in over ten years, just enjoying the afternoon air. The only thought I could rustle up was “Why?” Why, after mistakes I made, is she the one making things better? This, my friends, brings me to my point.
My previous statement was: “I’m pretty sure I have the best girlfriend ever! Anyone who wants to argue, I’m game.”
I am retracting it and replacing it with: “I absolutely KNOW that I have the best girlfriend ever and you will lose any argument saying otherwise!”
My two cents: it’s the small things that are worth so much more than anything money can buy.
