If you were to ask any woman what’s worse than getting dumped, the answer would be getting dumped AND THEN HAVING YOUR EX FIND A NEW WOMAN IN THE NEXT WEEK (allegedly). If you were to then ask what’s worse than that, the answer would be HAVING TO BE AROUND THEM.
Unfortunately for me, my ex and his new lady are members of the burner community in the Bay Area which means I get to bump into them at events.
So there’s no way I can even avoid my pain, I get to live it in blazing color every time I hang out with my burner friends at parties and gatherings.
SoulFire, a burner event taking place at Lupin Lodge in the Los Gatos Mountains, is coming up next weekend and both of them are going.
Why the universe continues to ask me to be classy and composed in the most stressful of situations I will never know.
Perhaps, as most people tell me, it’s because I’m strong and I can handle it.
And that is true. I AM strong and I CAN handle it.
But just for once, I’d like a little karma on my side. I’d like for the universe to send ME some kindness and let HIM be stressed.
I’m going to SoulFire by myself. There’s a lot of potential for me to get totally destroyed that weekend.
But there’s also a lot of potential for my friends to step up and help me have a good time.
There’s potential for me to enjoy myself with old friends and make new friends.
So even though I feel physically ill at the thought, I’m going.
Send all your kind thoughts my way and if you’re so inclined, drop me an email by October 16th at email@example.com and let me know you’re pulling for me.
