Perhaps this is bothering me so much because I really wanted to see the positive in this person. Maybe because she could actually be quite likeable, I wanted to like her. Maybe because I own my mistakes I expect others to do the same. Perhaps that is why this is still bothering me.
I think part of the reason I am so bothered is that I am mad at myself. I should have seen the writing on the wall several weeks ago, when she blew up at me. She yelled, popped off at the mouth, and where I would have immediately felt terrible and apologized, she said nothing. Even when I later went back and tried to discuss why she was so hostile, apologized for any wrong doing on my part, and asked how we could move forward, she still had an attitude and pouted/ignored me for days. (I hate the submissive part of me that apologizes to keep peace...)
I think it's time for me to suck it up and chalk this up as a lesson learned, because I am afraid if I don't let go I am going to become just like her. A person who never admits they're wrong, sees no fault in themselves and is not interested in changing who they are no matter how miserable their life might be. And I guess in truth, who wants to surround themselves with someone who is stagnant? Not me... Like stagnant water on a hundred degree day, stagnant people are smelly and become quite slimy real fast. You can smell the stench in their spirit, and I don't have time for that.
I guess the bottom line is: This is hers, not mine, and I am walking away....
