Things Fall Apart

As far back as I remember, I’ve always enjoyed working with people for the interaction, rather than some end result. Many people that I know are very goal oriented, and that’s fine for them. Personally, I like to succeed more when I am part of a group because it benefits the people I’m around and whom I have grown to care about. When it comes to personal success, I’m not so psyched. It’s good and all for people to dig what I do, but on some level I am happier with the process of working with other people than any end result that may occur.

For that reason, it really disturbs me when I have a falling out with a long time friend. Not that I have a lot of close friends, mind you; I know a great many people, but I take friendship very seriously and I have few of them as a result. The people who do become my friends, however, tend to be people I work very closely with and whom I look to do as much with as I can…

Tonight, I had someone I’ve known for a very long time tell me they have no love for me anymore. Funny thing is- it was caused because I attempted to point something out to that person which only a true friend would… It not only severed a friendship, but a working relationship as well. And before you ask- no, it’s not Daniel. He and I are working hard together on everything and anything and we get along great. Other than that, I can’t say anything more about it. Believe it or not, however, it started with a discussion about The Transformers that was hijacked by someone with a strange personal agenda. I know it sounds childish and stupid, and I wish I was joking... but that's how life goes sometimes. The most minor thing becomes huge in the blink of an eye.

Anyway- I rarely get overtly personal here, and it’s not my strong suit to do so. Usually, I keep all of my private stuff private… since this happened in a very public forum, however, I figured I needed to get it out a bit.

It sucks when things fall apart.

I’m not sure if it’s a permanent thing or not at this point. Time will tell.

Either way, life must go on.
