I just got off the phone with a dear friend, I just found out her girlfriend of 5 years has broken up with her via the internet, and cut off their communication so abruptly and just left her bleeding like that. I think it’s safe to say the girlfriend cheated on my friend prior to breaking up with her. Of course, we are human beings, we are selfish we want to take care of our security and needs first. So by the time my friend got dumped, days later there were already prenuptial pictures on Facebook, the girlfriend was marrying the guy after merely two months of dating. That couldn’t have happened over night! The guy turns out to be the girlfriend’s step brother. Isn’t that lovely? Father and son, mother and daughter. Okay maybe I am taking sides, of course I am! I’ve known B since high school and even though we don’t talk often she is one of the few people I consider to be a real friend. I feel sorry for her, that the blow had to be so big and from out of nowhere it seems. She couldn’t have anticipated it, because the whole time they were apart they were consistently in touch and sweet and all that. But I guess that’s it, words are just words, words are cheap. How many times have we been let down because of stupid words? I have many personal stories of my own, because I hold on to words too dearly when I shouldn’t. But I cannot help it, I figure I shouldn’t change how I am just because people are fucked up. I should just meet someone who can stay true to their words. That’s rare.
Love is an act, it’s not a feeling, it’s not something you say, but it’s something you act out and it’s in the things we do everyday that we can prove its existence. It’s not enough to just say “I love you”, we have to act it out.
It makes me realize how precious love is when we have it.
