A little serious topic today: When is enough enough? When do you decide that you can’t put up with someone’s bullshit any longer?
I may have found the answer last night. Someone I know has been treading on thin ice lately, and he just might have broken the surface and started sinking. I’m done.
At some point, you just have to say enough is enough. You have to stop enabling and covering. You have to be the adult that this other person isn’t willing to be. It’s frustrating, and it’s infuriating. Why do I have to handhold someone who is older than I am (and theoretically a mature adult)?
It’s also frustrating when said person obviously needs some kind of support system yet doesn’t utilize the one they have. Family is available literally a couple hundred feet away? Better lean on these sketchy folks in the bad part of town instead. Makes total sense. Not.
There will be some truth-telling today, whether this person likes it or not. I may not have found out the truth from them, but I know it and can’t bear the burden of hiding it any longer. It’s not fair to me, and it’s certainly not fair to the other people being lied to. Part of living is accepting consequences for actions, so this person had better buckle down and straighten up.
