Ang- I understand what you are saying and I agree with whats been said. I have learned that there are some "friendships" who will fade away and in truth, when this happens, its a blessing in my life. I realize now that these folks were never friends but a drain on my meager resources. In my opinion, there is nothing I can say, do, quote, tell, scream, holler, or otherwise preach that will ever get through to a person who has cement between the ears. I imagine it like this- I imagine life's daily activities as a ladder. Some people have a ladder that is very tall and has many rungs, where they can see for a long distance. My ladder is short, it has maybe three rungs, maybe four on a great day :) and my view is limited and close to the ground. I can not run up and down my ladder the way others can, and when others want me to see their view- I should just nimbly run up my rungs to join them in their view- I have to say [again] that I simply can't, its not possible. I am comfortable in my short ladder, its mine, I can manage it, I don't feel all that short changed, I choose not to see a shorter ladder as a limit, instead I see it as something that I can max out! How many people who have a huge tall ladder can max that out? How many of them can honestly say that they have a true grasp of their tall ladder? They probably only use a tiny portion of it and have no real knowledge of the heights they could achieve if they stopped bothering me to look at their view and just explored their own world, the same way I do, with my smaller ladder. In some ways, we are blessed with this health challenge, it forces us to live our lives more deliberately and less accidentally than others, who think they have so much they can afford to waste much of it. Wwe should write a book- not called what color is your parachute, but how high is your ladder? LOL keep your chin up and smile. Its a good day.
