Nothing irks me more than finding out new things about ish that happened in the past….much less about someone who is fighintg for your trust for some reason or other. Why do I say this? Coz there are people who each time when I forgive and patch things up with, BAM!something that shoulda remained buried in the past comes back to haunt me. Worse still, it’s something that this person who nearly swore on his hamster’s life that it never happened.
Now, I do understand the generic ‘Life is too short to be mad’ philosophy but c’mon….I’m pretty sure im not the only one that the past haunts…be it over a boyfriend/girlfriend, over family issues and so on. You always go back to that new revelation and get angry all over again like it was that same day replaying over and over again. And nothing, NOTHING, irritates me more than someone saying crap like ‘it was in the past….just let it go’, when I think that if it was in the past and you want us to move on with life, you shoulda come clean in the first place!
Something that makes it even worse is finding out from friends or those close to you….why?because this person may have disclosed to them what their issue is with you, and I suspect that people do this coz they hope (deep down) that these friends will leak the info to you, thereby saturating his/her dirty work.
The way I see it, use the’rip the band-aid’ approach to life if it is truly ‘too short to hold a grudge’…tell me the truth to my face…be it a break-up, an epiphany, a realization, whatever. Do not let things fester until they are uncontainable when they do leak out.Let it out…with that said, you feel you have some truths to share with me, dont be a kitty and hide behind friends and lies….just tell it to my face. I may want to claw your good eye out or burn an effigy of you, but at least you were man enough to put it out there. Deuces!!!!
