Boy, howdy. Over the weekend I failed to live up to someone else's expectations and did I ever feel the heat. A neighbor down the block who is and has been separated from her husband for well over a year, expected me to join in on her verbal Tae Kwondo of her husband who has moved on, so to speak.
I didn't, and expressed my opinion to her that since she can't do anything about his part and what all she feels he's done wrong, she might take a look at hers, since that's the only part she can change, going forward. I told her in my experience, a relationship has two sides and the truth is generally somewhere in the middle. 3...2...1 Kaboom.
She wasn't buying anything I had to say. She gathered her forces and tried again trying to force me to see it her way. I refused to play. She shook three pictures she'd printed off FB that "prove he's cheating on me". They didn't.
Wow. When you don't do what someone else wants/expects you to do, you're going to feel the heat. Stand your ground anyway. Their stuff is their stuff. Let them deal with it.
