➡️ 9. Holding on to someone (a friend) who hurts you.

Sometimes you have to walk away from people, not because you don’t care, but because they don’t. When someone hurts you time and time again, accept the fact that they don’t care about you. It’s a tough pill to swallow, but it’s necessary medicine. DO NOT strive to impress them any further. Waste not another second of your time trying to prove something to them. Nothing needs to be proven. Do not act with any thought of them ever again.

————————

I don’t want to EVER Forget this friend, though.

But since my conversations are not good enough, I must move on to other friends that appreciate my company.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

IT IS A DARN HARD PILL TO SWALLOW.

With stress, excruciating back pain, depression, and lost-of-strength, I cannot have friends that don’t want Me. With this said, I’m happy. Depression is only bad when pain hits; therefore, vulnerable.

For over a year and a half I’ve been unable to work due to a disability, and therefore have been without any income.  It sure has been tough.  Besides going to the NEAF (Northeastern Astronomy Forum)  with my friend (thank goodness for her that she was  able to take me), I’m kind-of sort-of living a reclusive life, a side effect, I believe, of living with my particular disability.  I haven’t even had my hair touched up.  I could live fine without a lot of things, but I do like to keep up with my red hair.  It just makes me feel  a little better…on the inside.  My near constant excruciating back pain can be showing through my eyes, but for some reason if my hair is done… the overall persona looks great–even if only in my eyes and no one else’s. This is something that I do for myself.

So, my summer has been mainly spent keeping homebound, watching movies, TV shows, and reading books and magazines.  Twitter has been a FABULOUS PLUS!  Besides the several Smallville fans that I have met/chatted with on there, this summer I’ve met another friend (as honest & real as they come).   That friend is @Tommytrc .  I had started a Formspring.me (http://www.formspring.me/typertist) account, and I was immediately hooked to it.  I asked Tommy a lot of questions (I’m sure he can attest to this!) and he answered nearly all of them.  What a great sport!  Along with meeting/chatting with Tommy online, I’ve also met (meaning online) many other wonderful people such as:  @mmangen @tvorse @OhDaddy @WebGrrrrl @2sonsup @AmyStark @LisaRedShoesPR  @inklesstales @JessDennis  @VAinParadise

Oh, and more which are now following:  @JeffLast @alisonjns @PatrickCasey

@saraljeffers @nikkivoelzke @AFiebig @ShadowHart , etc.

Last but not least, worthy of particular note, is @harrisonloveall … An awesome guy to follow!

Why. . .Just Is!

I sometimes get asked (or not) why I usually sign off on correspondence with friends, with “Just Is,” so I figured it’s time to explain how and why that signature came about…

Just Is!

Yep. My name is… Is. Just Is™, that is.

This all came about when I was attending school at Gibbs College. In the evenings while studying and reviewing myassignments, I would often e-mail my friend, Cathy.

As usual, when writing a letter, a note, or an e-mailing one ends their letter/note with a closing such as sincerely, fondly, or by saying love, _?_.
I would always close simply as…
Love, Is… The “Is” of course, was short for Isabel.
Cathy said it sounded like the “two little naked kids.” I asked for clarification on what two little naked kids (I had forgotten). She elaborated that they were the cartoon naked kids that were printed in the comic section of the Newspaper. The comics would often read, for example: “Love is…” , followed by different phrases, such as “sharing your ice-cream.” After that, I felt like the closing “Love Is,” just begged for added phrase, so I then took to writing ‘Love, “Just Is™” ‘ when closing a letter, note, or e-mail.

And that’s how it all started.
