No, no…Let me be the first to say, I don’t like having my time wasted. Seriously, I don’t. It’s rare that I get truly angry anymore, but, I’m still a libra, so, I don’t like it when people are unfair. And, what’s unfair is when a person becomes greedy about how to maintain a relationship, whether it be friendship or other wise. Mind you, I’m assuming that I’m preaching to the choir here, but, there’s still a few out there who are so immersed in…um…themselves that they don’t get it. I do not make a very good satellite. I never have. And, I don’t enjoy being orbited around, either.
I had this occasion where someone asked me what was important to me in relationships and the truth is… equality. I like partnering up with people, whether it be a friendship, relationship…whatever. I’m for the team. The golden rule is very appropriate to me in this way. Treat me the way you’d like me to treat you. Otherwise, hit the bricks, bust a move, don’t the door hit ya… you know the rest. Yet still–still people try an slice the corners, or slither under things to get their way. And, then, don’t understand why I feel compelled to say something. It’s ridiculous.
Last fall, a person reappeared in my life after 11yrs. came in, wanted to start something, then abruptly broke out after three months. (Remember the 3 month rule people! If it get past three months okay, you can probably keep going!) Then, after not speaking to me for two months pops up again. I’m sorry, wtf?! Nah, I don’t think so. He wanted to be on the back burner, unfortunately for him, I took him off the stove all together. Now, yes, there are some of the male elders of my village shaking their heads in disappointment, but, not for nothing, if you’ve gotta half-ass a relationship, you probably shouldn’t be in it to begin with. You know, Terri Hatcher has this new book called, “Burnt Toast”. And, she equates eating burnt toast to settling in life, because you think burnt toast is all you can get or deserve. And, that’s not me. Never has been, nor will be.
Right now, I have a relative about to do something severely destructive because of the burnt toast syndrome. And, it saddens me, but, I’m not trying to intervene. At the end of it all, we’re responsible for our own actions. And, damn it, I’m not eating burnt toast when I can have crossiants! Even if that means, I have to bake them myself!
So, no…I don’t have any back burners available for anyone who can’t get it together. That’s like trying to cook food on low–sure, eventually it’ll cook, but, damn, you might starve to death first! And, then what if you forget about what’s on the back burner? You could very well end up with burnt food that you’ll end up throwing out anyway! Nah…I don’t think so.
