Of course I get the " haven't heard from you and know one knows what you have been up to, I figured the worst". Literally the second she gets done saying that the valet pulls up my Lambo. She was speechless. Add to the fact that she was there with her 100 pd soaking wet fiancé and I currently have to cut the sleeves on short sleeve button up shirts so my arms can fit and don't get stuck. It was hilarious
Feels good to tell people to go *censored - swear word* themselves, but you will/should tire of this. If not, you end up being the exact dick you used to hate. Keep the ego small, and be thankful you pulled yourself out of the hole. Until you get there (a bit higher on Maslow's pyramid), take solace in the fact that any enemy will turn themselves inside out just knowing you made it - that should be enough to take the first step of not rubbing their noses in it. Do that a few times and all of a sudden you will have risen above it, and can concentrate on more important things.
Haha. I realize that on this site I sound like a douche or that dick, but I really m not. I always try and keep the ego small and never rub anyones nose in it. But the fact that she said that and then that happened it was like the universe was sticking up for me.
Also I really don't blame anyone for thinking that I should be dead or in jail. I probably should. Also you are very right about rising above it. She knows that even tho we had are problems at the end of the day if she asked me for anything I would do it for her in a second.
Isnt it funny we are told from birth that to be successful you have to get a god job and make money and whatever else. But the second you make to much money you are condemned as being cocky or full of yourself. But I love the advice you offered me. Thanks
