This was the subject line of an email I received today. This comes from a former boss of mine who made it her job in life to stomp all over me all while I was working for her, all the while telling me I deserved to be treated that way. I've long since quit and ceased having anything to do with her, which is a story that will never fit here but I'll eventually deal with on my website, but she keeps cropping up just like Freddy Kruger.
It's no accident that I ended up having to deal with her again right now. Like a shark smells blood in the water she probably instinctively knew it was a good time to strike. Unfortunately for her, her opinion holds no water for me anymore, and while it was not a pleasant experience to extracate her from my life (for what I hope will be the final time... she holds on like a Pit Bull and won't let go of her favorite whipping boy), and dealing with her vile menacing insulting mean attitude is never something I relish - I am HAPPY.
I'm happy I didn't take her crap. I'm happy I could tell her to go take a flying leap. I'm happy I could tell her she CAN'T treat me like that anymore, and what she says or thinks has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with who I am. Who I am is what you see here. And the many many emails and comments I've received tell me that the people who really count don't think of me as a joke, and that I am a worthwhile worthy human being.
I'm not perfect, I've made mistakes. But I'm also a good, decent person who has just as much right as anyone else to be happy. I'm not going to let the venom of an abuser change the way I look at myself anymore.
No more negative stuff for this girl. I'm going to live my life and be happy and if she can't then that is not my problem. And I'm done taking responsibility for her problems. This was just her sad, pathetic attempt to have the last word - and I don't want any part of it. Her approval of me is neither desired nor required.
