But as time went on I had a talk with my mind/
friends like you and you I gotta leave behind
One of the hardest things to admit is that you have outgrown certain friends in your life. It hurts to know that the folk you used to hang so tight with no longer add any value to your life. It pains me to see how different of a path I am taking from them. However, everybody can't go to the next level with you.
Maybe early last year, I could deal with folk calling me with the same issue over and over again. Now to see a person in the same rut they were in last year disgusts me. Kats and katettes need to get off that figure 8 course, frill. Everyday, I'm picking up my cross to follow Him. Anything that is not helping me get closer to Him and His Promise for my life, I gotta leave it behind. I'm on a quest to find that next level and the level after that and so on and so forth.
I can count the number of calls I've taken from non-family members these last few weeks. So to ya'll whose calls I answered.....this blog ain't bout you #smile. Nah, I don't wanna hang. Nah, don't tell me about that same triflin' mate I said you needed to leave. Nah, I don't wanna hear about you complain about a job that you shoulda left months ago but you're too complacent to do so. Nah, I haven't changed my status on FB in I dunno how long.
Yeah, I'm hanging out with that homie again. Yeah, I'm going out of town that many times. Yeah, I know that where I am now is nowhere near my peak. Yeah, I'm gonna stay in the house and read a book. Yeah, the peace that I have in my life is almost inexplicable. Yeah, I plan on keeping it.
I thank you for serving your purpose. You rode with me as far as you were supposed to. You actually taught me a lot....of what NOT to do. I hope that all the wisdom and knowledge I imparted you with, you someday use it. I promise you I wasn't hating. I promise you that even though I lack experience in certain areas, I knew what I was talking about. I could see the picture because I wasn't in the frame. I know at time I can be a pompous douche, but I did it because my expectations of you were high because my expectations of myself are higher.
Maybe one day, we'll link up again. If not....thnks fr th mmrs. Peace.
