"We're all getting too old to be pissed,"

-penelope spheeris

A strangely fitting quote to run across this morning.

I am too old to be pissed. Pissed off or pissed on, neither.

I've been angry this week. A friend hurt me, on purpose. Again. And this time not even just a private nastygram, he has discovered social media in recent years and blogged his entitled-baby-temper-tantrum.

I'm too old to be pissed, so I'm letting that go. The anger, and also the friend.

People don't get to hurt me on purpose. Unless we are related by blood, we cannot hang at all if you are deliberately hurtful.

I'm too old to allow people like that to remain in my life.

[edited to remove backstory. guess I'm over the need to vent.]

    Eydie stole the exact word I was thinking as I read this--boundaries--and Eydie is so right--good strong ones!

    all that is left of this friendship is your ability to be compassionate from a distance. shake the dust off your sandals and mooooooove on!

    a little righteous anger among friends is good though, it gives your motor the fuel it needs to mooooove on down the road!

    The older I get I see that it's all about setting up boundaries, and not those little rickety boundaries, I'm talking good strong borders!

    Sometimes I feel like I practically need someone to hit me in the face with a brick before I see how screwed up things are, but when I see it, i really see it.

    Ouch, some past friends should stay just the past.
