I’m Sorry … But Not Sorry …

I am wanting to start this post with a very simple 5-word statement. And that is: I’m Sorry … But Not Sorry. I suppose you are wondering what the hell I am talking about by making that 5-word statement. And this is what I am on about …

Ever since I was a young teenager and started a life that I wouldn’t wish upon my worst enemy, which is being homeless for a couple of decades with small amounts of time here an there living in refuges and short-term accommodation places. But for the most part it was living in a park, in a bust stop, on a park bench, at the beach, wherever I could find that was safe and there was no one around whilst I was trying to get some sleep.

I have met some horrible people and I have also met some fantastic people at the same time. For many years I have allowed people to walk all over me. This has still been going on until recently. But I am sorry I can not continue living this way. As everyone knows I am not homeless anymore and I haven’t been for over a year and a half now. And I have no plans on returning to my previous lifestyle. Things haven’t been easy I have been struggling and I am still struggling. But I am doing everything I can to push through and have a life that I never had. To have friends that treat me the same and don’t just want to be friends so they can get what they want out of me and have a one-way friendship. I am over that. And it will no longer happen.

As of late I have already been deleting and blocking people off my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as a result. And I will continue to do so to anyone that continues treating our so-called friendship as a one-way street. Your time is over.

Now, this is how things are going to be:

  • I am always the person that makes the first contact to see how the other person is. This is now over. You need to make an effort and message me too.
  • If I don’t hear from you for a certain period of time (and no I am not telling you what that time frame is) then our friendship is over and I will cease all contact.
  • If you don’t hear from me and you are supposed to be a friend, ask yourself this, when was the last time I messaged Zac to say Hi and see how he is? This will probably give you the answer to your question.
  • If you only contact me because you want something and never contact me to say Hi, or ask How I am doing and if I am ok, then your time is over. If you are doing this don’t bother messaging me ever again because I will no longer reply to your messages, emails, voicemails or text messages. I am done. Your time is over.

And now the reason I am also not sorry is that it is time I took control back of my life and that is exactly what I am doing. I am cleaning out the shit from my life you can say. And if you think this post is about you, then maybe you need to think about our friendship and if there is even one there.

My last comment is this, as I have mentioned a couple of times throughout. I am done. Your time is over. I’m Sorry … But Not Sorry.
