I have officially finished the severing of all ties….insurance and cell phone are in my name alone and connected to my bank account, again.
No one can demand information about things associated with my phone/phone bill, no one can guilt me about paying for those things while I am “just” finishing grad school.
Saturn retrograde be damned.
- I have a state job, ergo I can pay all my own damn bills again.
- I have an MSW, ergo I never ever, ever have to think about homework again.
- I again have complete responsibility and autonomy over my life again, ergo there is only myself to consider when feeling guilt, if I so choose to.
I am not saying it is bad for people to put themselves in situations where they trust and depend on other people, per se…..
It’s just not a place I like to live.
And it will NOT take me 5 times to figure that shit out.
To paraphrase the words of good ol’ scapegoat Dubya….”Fool me once, shame on you…fool me 4 times….well you know….I won’t get fooled again!”
Welcome back, Just Jani!
