With the recent turn of events, I now know that there are only a selected few that are worth my time. When things are good, they’re all about getting together and “I’ll be there when you need me” yet when shit hits the fan, everyone is suddenly too busy. Don’t ever use the excuse of I have work or I have a baby. I call bullshit on that. NO ONE works 24 hours, 7 days a week. Sorry but no one is that damn important that you can’t take an hour or even 45 minutes out of your day to talk to me when you specifically told me you’ll be okay to talk when I need to. Oh and don’t even try using your baby as a damn excuse. No kid is going to be awake 24 hours a day. What? You can’t spare like 10 minutes when the kid is asleep to chat with me? Another thing, everyone is so damn self-important that they can’t spend an hour each day to take care of an elderly parent? Don’t be saying, we’re all going to end up in a nursing home to justify being a jackass and not helping out.
Yes, I’m royally pissed off with how everyone can be so damn self-important when it comes to senior care. When people are healthy, they’re all about being polite and caring but as soon as the person can’t walk or has issues with memory, it’s off to the nursing home. Guess what? Karma will bite everyone’s asses in due time. Don’t think you’re the shit just because you are mobile and healthy. Everyone gets sick. I can’t do everything on my own…I’m one person and I have to actually work for money, not like your lazy asses valuing a dollar more than a human life. So even though I’m going through this alone and I may pretend to smile and not give a damn about being deserted at this difficult time, just wait till the time comes when every one of you are going through what I am right now and ask me for help or “to talk”, I’ll just say “sorry I’m too busy”. Don’t even try to say what I’m going to do is not right, because you know what? I’m done being right with so called friends and family. In my book, true friends/family are actually there for each other…they’ll drop whatever they other person needs during the difficult times. The fact that everyone has the nerve to pull this stunt when in the past I have dropped everything for every single one of you is beyond words for me. I can’t even begin to express in words how selfish everyone has acted.
Even when I posted on social media why I’ve been absence from social gatherings, no one bothered to reply with words of encouragement. Don’t even tell me “I don’t know what to say” in response to your dad being in the ER and now in a nursing home. I don’t know what to say when you tell me he has dementia and acts out every day” because you know what? Just a “I’m sorry and if you need to talk, I’ll be here for you”. Here’s the thing, that excuse reeks of bullshit because you know what? My autistic nephew and my friend’s 3 year old kid, even knew what to do without me asking! I mean, these kids just came up and hugged me.
Oh by the way, everyone gets old. Everyone’s parents are getting older. So when the time comes, let’s see how you all feel. Let’s see if the old “I’m busy” will fly with them. I may act like I don’t care but I now know who my true friends are…Enough said.
