WOW it's been a LONG time since I posted anything on here.

Hi there!! Lots of things have happened in my life but I'll get into that another time. There has been something on my mind and I have no place to "vent" this out. So why not here.... here we go........... Over the years I've had friends (who are no longer friends) tell me that I don't know "How to be a friend" and they get "rid" of me as a friend. I don't get that. NOW, I have a family member tell me that I don't know "what family means or how to be part of a family". Interesting....I don't understand that either. I value friendships like nothing else in this world because I don't have many friends and I'm not entirely sure why either. If it's my skin..get over it. I've had this skin thing for 42 years now and it's not going anywhere anytime soon. If it's because I speak my mind... well, I was given a brain shouldn't I use it? I hate being the one who should sit in a corner and behave and not say a word. And if I'm wrong about something, I fully admit it and learn from it. I'm not that way. As far as family goes, to me, it goes something like this: You have your family you were born into and the people you let into your life who mean the world to you. In my case, I have my mom (who I love dearly), my dad (who is up in heaven among the stars), my kids and aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. Then there are a few people who I call family even though they are not blood related. My best friend in the world Ray and his family - they have seen me go through a ton of crap in the last 12-18 months or so and I couldn't have gotten through it without them. My buddies Lisa, Dawn and Tracie - love them!!!! Enough said. I'm not happy with a certain family member treating me like I'm 2 and telling me that when I decide to apologize maybe, just maybe, she'll let me in her life again. I'm sorry, family just doesn't do that. Kelly
