Today is a new day and I am in a better head space than yesterday. Am I over the situation? No. Will I move on from it? Eventually. Can I let it go? Never.
I can not let it go because Reuben is my other half. When I map out my future plans and career goals I include him. He’s supposed to one day become my husband. That is the ultimate goal. Whether it’s a long-term goal or short-term depends on the alignment of the stars. But, I know that I definitely want it to happen nonetheless.
So, when Reu critics me his words stick like a staple. See I want us to reflect each other and always compliment one another, but I cannot do that. It would be too much to ask of him because in his eyes I’m not a college educated, hard-working woman, which is what I strive so hard to remain. Instead, I am a unmotivated, financial burden.
It’s not that he does not respect my grind he simply just does not understand it because we are on two totally different career paths. That’s fine. To each its own. I can respect that to a certain extent.
However, there is a BUT!
I can respect his opinion to a certain extent until it is shared with his “associates” or “friends” that do not know me from a can of paint. I cannot respect that you talked to your associates about me like I’m not about shit while allowing them to formulate an opinion and bash me. You get no love for being wack which is the category your actions fall under.
Regardless of all the shit Reuben does that I don’t agree with or thinks make sense I’ve never shown my disapproval to anyone else. Why? I would never allow anyone to drag his name and character through the mud. You don’t do that to your best friend or lover. It’s not okay and there is no way to justify it. IT just goes to show some people are not ment to be trusted not even the people you lay down with.
Today I finally understand the saying “If you lie down with dogs you will wake up with fleas.” My fiance showed me the meaning of it and I am okay with that. For now, I will just assume he does not know better. One day he will. However, I can not teach him that because I have to wake him up. Show him how hard he is sleeping on an asset.
Rather he agrees or disagrees that on him. He has a right to his opinion. However, all I request of him is to defend me when I can’t defend myself. Everything else will fall into suite afterwards, and if your not willing to do that then let me know and we can weigh all other options. Peace, love, and Dose of Daisy.
