I have been sitting at the computer for hours. Despite being Punjabi, a Scorpio and impatient, I really do have a long fuse. I let friends, family, and co-workers, get away with stuff and I am lax about calling them out. They say things, and I presume they didn’t mean for it to sound as it did. They don’t call me, they are busy it is fine. I put up with tardy behavior. It is fine. I give the benefit of the doubt. It is true I don’t like conflict. But make no mistake, if I have to, I will dig my heels into the ground. But clearly, I let things go for longer than they should.
I am doing the same thing with Town and Country. I let him get away behavior that I would not let another guy get away with. And why? Am I worried Town and Country won’t like me? I mean – I think it is clear that he is fine with things the way they are. But I am not. I think it would be better if something dramatic happened between us and I could end this once and for all.
My debate is, yes Town and Country is busy. So maybe he has not had time to open the package, which is fine. But if he has gotten it – and he cannot acknowledge it – shouldn’t that tell me what I am refusing to acknowledge? It is no longer about the package, it is what the package symbolizes.
So I grab my phone and send him a text.
