The above photo caught my fancy on Instagram. Immediately I saw it, I started nodding my head in consent because I could relate the quote to something presently happening and immediately, I reposted it. Hello to my wonderful LHers, hope we are cool? Hiya Mannie and Tibs, I hope one of you guys get to comment first today, smiles…
You see, I used to be very close to this cousin of mine. We were inseparable until she bruised my feelings. She said and did things I’m too ashamed to write here to me. In fact when she said and did those things, I wasn’t angry with her, I was rather ashamed and disappointed in her. I kept trying to convince myself that maybe, just maybe she was hypnotized but I knew I was deceiving myself. I tried to make her see that what she did was wrong but I got tired trying to because she refused to accept and tried to turn the table.
My cousin and I used to talk four to five times weekly on the phone because we stay in different states but now we only talk four times in a year. We talk on my birthday, her birthday, Christmas day and new year day. We communicate like strangers. When we are on the phone, we usually don’t know or have anything to say to each other. I have forgiven her but we can’t have a relationship again.
