Anyhow, I kept the mood up all day, right into getting Valentina off to bed. Then I sat down to think about it and process it... I decided that I can continue to be angry about it and let it bother me or I can let it go and move on... I want to let it go... otherwise I won't be able to continue the friendship and that would disappoint me more. I can let go of my hurt feelings, I know that none of it was intentional, it all hurts the same though.
I think our society has lost the art of conversation because of chat and texting, although I love these methods, nothing beats sitting with a friend talking on the phone or in the same room. I am sure that if I was in the same room with that friend or on the phone, I would have come away from the conversation feeling a whole lot better.
It's because the situation would have been dealt with immediately and we would have ended everything off with laughter... instead I went to bed perturbed and carried it through to today, actually adding to it by adding other things the person said before, trying to justify my mood... Unfortunately I realized or knew that there is nothing that can justify my mood. Just because someone says something hurtful, whether they meant to or not, does not mean that I should pass that on.
Here I am chatting with my friend again tonight, everything is fine... they honestly have no clue. I am going to be a lot more careful what I put in a chat or text, I don't want someone upset with me for something I didn't mean to infer... If anything like this happens in the future, I will make the decision to move on before I go to sleep.. then I won't waste so much time being angry at nothing.
I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future ♥
