Someone said something to me today that was so hurtful. It came out of left field. I tried to pretend like it did not hurt, but it felt like a knife was shoved into my heart and twisted. I totally did not see it coming. It was intentional and planned. I tried my best to just finish the telephone conversation and I did with tears streaming down my cheeks. I managed to excuse myself off of the phone just before my voice cracked.
I wish sometimes that I could just cut this person out of my life but I can't because it was my mother. She has gotten older and these vicious attacks are not as frequent but she still has the ability to spew venom.
This was just sad.
