Stuff

Hmmm ... I had an interesting experience yesterday. I got 'dropped' for being 'psychic'. I actually admitted it to a so-called friend, partly tongue in cheek, because I am not psychic on demand, but frequently just 'know' or 'feel' stuff. Just random stuff. Things that I don't realise are messages until a bit later... yeah, anyhow.

I just said, after her surprised reaction that I knew something that I hadn't been formally 'told'. Oh, its because I'm psychic, I said. That's how I know.

Well you could have heard a pin drop. Then wham, I was dropped. Phew.

I guess I shouldn't have been so surprised. She was a friend that I met at the primary school my daughters attended. I did canteen with her every month for about 6 years. We got on really well and had the same sense of humour. I had never gotten that close to her to feel the need to tell her about 'the other side of me'....

I have to admit though, that I was a little hurt. The prejudice of some people.... even though she has known me for about 9 years, and knows that I am not a bad person. Hmmmm. *shaking head

Oh well...

Que Serra Serra

I guess that leaves a space to be filled by a 'like minded' soul. Someone with whom I can be fully me. Not just the muggle half, but the whole kit and caboodle...

Most folk having that said to them would think you were joking.

She probably has more skeletons in her closet than a med school. So, rather than risk that come to light, she backed off.

Michelle said...

Good riddance then. People are so strange.

We will keep you in spite of your weirdness....:0)

That's sad.....but it's her loss I think. I just found your blog and plan to follow ♥

You know...it is SO sad that people don't accept others for who they are. I agree with Natalies rant...embrace diversity. But I also feel that a shallow friend is NOT a friend. You are best of without this person in your life. And you are right - there is now space for a true friend.

Pick me, Pick me!!!

You can hang out with someone weirder than yourself ... and you will feel better LOL!

I agree, she's just afraid.

Jen said...

Gee - thanks guys. I agree - not worth worrying about... so she is gone.

Welcome abord Darla!!! Thanks for your nice words.

And Faerie, you were picked long ago!!!

That's exactly what I was talking about! Not wanting people in your life who don't want you in theirs! Too bad for this person. Good for you!
