That’s All I Gonna Say Right Now ~ Soaking Wet Juliet

Greetings Dear Reader,

“Soaking wet Juliet- she lives in a well full of tears
Her husband left her for some bimbo after twenty-two years
Now she's got to start all over, but she's just so terrified
She thinks it woulda been so much easier if he woulda just died” 

Relationships are so difficult in our time.  Conflicts of values, priorities, and lifestyles limit our ability or willingness to connect.  Once in relationships there are easier escape clauses and diversions.  The complexity of the world and our roles in it make it too easy to disregard commitment, responsibilities, and vows. 

We actually use our own desires and wants as justification for violation of the trust of others.  Please read clearly that I said “WE”.   I am guilty of this as well.   We abandon lives that are our responsibility in the name of finding ourselves.  We pursue our dreams leaving a wake of destruction and pain.  It always comes back to us. 

The other side of that is our failure to forgive those who wrong us.  We carry the pain as our new best friend.  We turn bitterness into our way of life.  We make the betrayal our banner and gather like minds under it.  This too leaves a wake of pain in its path and returns nothing good to us.

We justify our failures.  Sometimes we abandon all of our values just to get what we want.  In truth, even if things turn out well for us we have bought that success on the lives of others.  That is never acceptable, but that is all I am going to say right now.  I don’t want to say too much…except, sweet river, roll.

Wishing you joy in the journey,
