Three words a friend “shared” with me tonight.
And honestly, I have been whining lately. I’ve not been happy with myself, or my life.
But my friend listened intently before uttering those three words, and then more
“You stupid fuck! You have amazing kids, and as a single father you did good. They love you, and even at 17 and 20 they kiss you goodbye every morning. even in front of their friends!
You treat your ex-wife better than I would and people look up to you. I know your employees do and you get to build cool stuff.
Dude, you have it all, what the fuck is wrong with you? Do you expect perfection? Your life will never be perfect, you stupid fucking fuck”.
That was pretty much the rant I got – and deserved. She was PISSED – but not at me, just how I felt about me at the time.
Yep – that’s from one of my best friends! My enemies use better language 🙂
Sometime friends help us out the most when they are completely truthful, and care more about us than our feelings.
Thanks, friend! And glad you are feeling better, and are out of harms way!
