I despise when people refuse to see the other side of something. Or believe that a request may be made simply for selfish reasons and not because a person is not comfortable in acknowledging something, or pointing something out, or sharing something at that time. It does not mean that what that person feels or thinks or is doing is trying to keep others in the dark. It just simply means that that person is not yet at a point of wanting to share.
And it hurts to know that information which was mine to share is no longer mine to share. This is not me being a bitch about it. But it hurts. Nothing more, nothing less. And it hurts even more because I know that certain people will believe that it is for self-serving reasons.
And quite frankly, after all the time, and after dealing with hearing the same broken record tunes, I just don't give a rat's ass anymore.
