Letting Go Is Hard
Topic: Art of Communicating
Little Chick: What's wrong Big Dog?
Big Dog: I lost somebody I thought would be a good friend.
Little Chick: What do you mean?
Big Dog: Well, he is in a different "breed" and we didn't understand each other.
Little Chick: You couldn't find a mutual ground.
Big Dog: Apparently not. I mean I kept trying and just about each time I thought we were "jamming" together things would blow up. Often, I did not know something had blown up.
Little Chick: What was wrong with the communication?
Big Dog: That's it. There wouldn't be any communication.
Little Chick: You mean he wouldn't communicate when things had blown up.
Big Dog: Exactly. Then when I would reach him all this stuff had been built up and there would be an explosion by him.
Little Chick: What now?
Big Dog: There was another major "blow up" and I decided to walk a way.
Little Chick: Then why do you look so sad?
Big Dog: I really wanted him as my close friend so I invested so much emotional energy. It hurts. However, I think I made the best decision for me.
Little Chick: Well, do what I do. When the going gets rough I watch a DVD with Actor Lance Henriksen in it. It helps for a while.
The key is to fill the void with positive distractions and try to stop having self-defeating thoughts and self-pity parties.
I mean it sounds like he would not have been a good friend with those lack of communication skills and conflict resolution abilities.
So frate it!!!!!!!!!
Big Dog: I know you are right Little Chick.
Little Chick: Follow me.
Big Dog: Where are we going?
Little Chick: We are going to look through my mom's Lance Henriksen's DVD collection for some DVDs for you to watch.
Big Dog: Little Chick you act like watching Actor Lance Henriksen DVDs is the "cure all" for everything.
Little Chick: I know it is not the "cure all"; however, every little bit helps and this is a good start.
Big Dog: You are right. I enjoy watching Actor Lance Henriksen DVDs. In addition, Lance's lifetime achievements shows that if you get knocked down just get back up and dust yourself off and move on.
Little Chick: That's it. You have to start somewhere. Then distract yourself so you will not think so much about the outcome of the relationship with your potential friend. You are going to be okay Big Dog. I know your heart and it is red.
Your potential friend's heart sounds like it could be "dark" or "black". I know you are a "bleeding heart" and do not like to give up on things. However, you can not help him and your continued involvement could get worse for you.
Big Dog: You are right and wise for such a little chick. How did you obtain all this information?
Little Chick: From watching my mother's collection of Actor Lance Henriksen's DVDs.
Big Dog: Are you getting some type of endorsement for this?
Little Chick: No.
