Tribute To All The People That Owe You Money
Have you ever lent someone some money and they promised to pay it right back? Only to continue to put you off after you asked for it repeatedly? I am not one to borrow from friends or family, nor will I lend out money.
Why? Because people burn you. And you never forget it. Ever.
I have released my negative energy and decided to let “this burn”go– but it was hard.
Why? Because this person was supposed to have been a “friend”– we went through a few trials and tribulations together. The reason for borrowing the borrow to me did not seem dire. And my gut told me not to do it. So I just gave her 1/2. I just have listened to my gut. Hmm I usually listen to it when I’m hungry but..
Anyways, she kept putting it off or asked for more time. I mean it wasn’t that much. Then just stopped communicating all together. And it’s a little awkward (well for me) when you have people like this commenting on your facebook posts, status, etc but yet can’t pay you back.
Even my husband stepped in and talked to her husband about it. Man-to-man. Yeah.. that never went anywhere. So I have decided to let it go.
A wise person once said– don’t lend out what you can’t afford to lose. Or something crazy like that.
The saying should have been- you borrow- you will pay some kind of way! LOL
So here’s my tribute to this person that borrowed and never paid good on that promise! Feel free to send this that “person” that still owes you!
You know who you are. You said we were friends. And by virtue of our friendship I was vulnerable. And so when you reached out to me and asked to borrow money from me, I lent it. Perhaps foolishly. Perhaps I was naive when it came to you because we were friends, Or so I thought, and never in a thousand eons would I have imagined you would literally take our friendship and use it as so much toilet paper. And because you didn’t metaphorically flush nor wash your besmirched hands what a stink you have made.
There is an old adage that says, “Don’t lend something you can’t afford to lose.” Wise words for sure, but when I opened up my heart and my purse, I wasn’t just lending you money. I was also lending you faith, trust, and my belief in the good in others. I was also lending you our friendship too.
And although ultimately it really isn’t the money at issue, but the principle. The fact that you squandered our friendship over such a paltry and petty thing. For nearly a year now you never reached out to me with so much as a single word of explanation. You were stoic with your brand of disrespect. You were bold and uncaring. And now I know too that you lack integrity and moral fortitude.
I know now how little our friendship means to you. For actions speak so much louder than any words ever could. Our friendship obliterated by the rotten shamelessness of your inviolable act.
Obviously our friendship means nothing. It means less than nothing. For friends are open and honest with one another. Friends keep the lines of communication open. And friends, well they never shirk nor neglect the obligations of a friendship.
So, it is with much acrimony that I dissolve our friendship. I have washed my hands of it all. And perhaps if you feel bad then let that be payment enough, and may the pockets of your consciousness over flow with an abundance regret.
