What would you say?

There are only two rules for this: 1. List (10) hard things you wish you could say to 10 people but you know you never will. 2. Don't say who it is about.

I read this on Echo's blog and I really liked the idea...

1. You are so special to me, and there are so many opportunities in life...you are the only one holding yourself back from them.

2. Life is so short and you have already had an accident...slow down and enjoy the small things in life, don't always be so intense about the small crap.

3. Thank you for being a part of my life, my thoughts that make me smile and laugh.

4. Its time to make changes in your life. I know you are set in yours ways and yours is the only "right" way...but its never to late to heal the hurt and for us to start some kind of relationship.

5. You are harder on yourself...lighten up, you are a fanstastic guy and I am so proud do have you as one of my dearest friends.

6. I am so sorry. I hurt you and didn't mean to...in hind sight if I could take back what happened...I would.

7. You are beautiful and so caring and yet you are so worried about what everyone else thinks...its most important to love yourself first.

8. Please take care of yourself...so often you push yourself to physical and mental limits and you are not taking time to just take care of yourself...that really scares me.

9. You make me so angry...you have hurt me a few times and now I have to hide those thoughts and continue to smile, even though I wish I could tell you how I feel...

10. I miss you so much...I wish there was a way to go see you. I would drive there and we would talk and catch up...we would laugh and spend time together.

Whoa... another intense one BarD!
Most all of your unspoken words are positive...and maybe, should be shared.
Thank You BarD...
the only feathers I have ever seen in you, despite what the Sponge-master says, have been those that give you flight.

or give her fight!

HA

Does it have to be nice things! LOL!!!

Nice list Barb!

Enemy of the Republic said...

Yeah, does it have to be nice things, Barb? When I say nice things, people figure I'm pulling a hustle.

Jay said...

This is a pretty interesting exercise. It could be fairly therapeutic to do something like this.

Beth said...

wow, this is intense!!

I don't think I have 10 things, but here goes:

1. I Miss you more each and every day..but you are doing the right thing and you NEED to step out of your comfort zone and talk to people and try to make friends.

2. You have got to be the MOST selfish person I know. You are phony and I hate being around you most of the time. You make me feel so stupid, and like I am not good enough to be your friend.

3. I hate the way you clap in church.

4. I wish you would be a man and get a job to support your family.

5. I wish you would be nicer to me.

6. when life is over, I will be glad that I spent mine with you.

singleton said...

Wow! You are the bomb girl. I'm not gonna concentrate on this one. Tuck it away somewhere safe. And then just spit it out when the time comes. If I think first my thoughts will ramble and I'll probably even try to rationalize. Seems like it just be spit! Flight or fight! Love it!

Echo said...

great thought back at ya!

SJ said...

1. Leave me alone. Can't you see that you bore me?

2. You work so hard and stress yourself - and then think everyone else is lazy.

3. Don't tell me there is no such thing as luck.

4. If you would kindly forget the studies and statistics and try to understand people instead...

5. You are better than anyone else around. You need to know that and demand your due.

6. Honestly it's been a real pleasure getting to know you.

7. Don't wish you had my problems

8. If you weren't so devoted to your husband I wouldn't mind hitting on you.

9. Can I tear those clothes off you?

10. You know what has to be done you also know you can't do it. I wish I could help.

captain corky said...

I might have to do this myself sometime. It's a good idea.

SpongyBones said...

1. I really think woman are cool as shit for getting tatts.

2. I really don't smell ben gay on old women, but I know she wears it.

3. Sorry man last time I wore the sheep outfit some chick wanted to sheer me.

4. I have a rash under my arm from swinging on a tree when I'm mad at you for telling me to hang in there ...

I'm tired now ...

Enemy of the Republic said...

WTF...

1. Even though you are a puppy and of lower intelligence than us humans, I still see you as God's creature and I love ya.

2. (To husband) I know you love me, but how about acting like you do?

3. (To husband) You don't know how? Hmm. Take How to Treat a Woman 101, taught by Spongybones.

4. (To husband) Really? You have no intention of listening to some other man telling you how to make your wife happy? Okay, macho man--enjoy the couch tonight!

5. (To husband) Flowers and perfume--my favorite scent. You shouldn't have....ah, I see why you did.

Moving on...

6. (To my son) Child, I love you and you will be the heir to my great fortune. In leiu of abject gratitude, could you clean your room instead?

7. (To my son) Pretty please--brush those teeth or you get to pay the root canal bills.

8. (To my girlfriend) You owe me at least 3 nights of drunknessess off pomagranite martinis because I switched schedules with you. When can I collect?

9. (To Barb) Califonia Dreaming on such a rainy day (or is it lonely--I haven't heard that song in ages.)

10. (To Brad Paisley) Do you believe in polygamy?

The Lone Beader said...

I would only say one thing:

I love you:)

Tori_Z said...

Hope you don't mind me joining in...

1. I may not have kids of my own, but I know enough to know that consistancy and consequences matter. You've already ruined your other two, don't make the same mistake again!

2. You had your chance to live your life and make your choices for yourself. Let me have that opertunity too.

3. Yes, I love you. Yes, I appreciate everything you've done for me throughout my life. But shove off and let me be in charge of my own life. I don't need you running it for me!

4. It's just a stupid computer. Turn it off and go outside and get some fresh air. That darn game isn't going anywhere!

5. I hate coming in this house, and only do so to shut you up. The constant arguements and abusive comments thrown from person to person are annoying, and make me want nothing more than to get as far away from this house as I can. You may think that no matter where I live this will always be my 'home' but I've never felt I can call it my home.

6. Yeah, I know you'd like us to visit you, but we have our own lives. Not to mention the fact that the last time I visited you, I was so bored I wanted to die!

7. You're a disgusting slob who treats her kids like servants. You don't have kids to do your chores for you, and you shouldn't tell them you did. It's not the kids' job to keep your house tidy, your laundry washed, and your dishes clean, it's yours. So, get off your butt and get to work, and let the kids be kids!

8. I love you more than anything else in the world, but sometimes I wish you'd think of me a little more, and realise that sometimes I need to be shown that you love me back. Sometimes, it's just nice to be told "I love you" for no reason, or for you to come home with something for me "just because."

9. How can I be the baby girl you wanted more than anything else in the world, and an accident at the same time?

10. If you'd been able to tell what I was, and I'd been a boy, would you have kept me? After all, you said you were dreading the thought of having another boy.

Rachelle said...

Wow, it's been a long time since I visited, I hope you know that I've been thinking about you!
Somehow your link got dropped from my favorites list :( (darned kids!!)
But I want you to know I am here, and that I'm glad I found you again!
Love,
Rachelle

I'm finally getting around to doing this. Here goes.

1. The things you do scare me. Please consider visiting a psychiatrist, because you need someone to talk to about your problems.

2. You are perhaps the most self-centered person I have ever known. Why was I ever your friend, again?

3. I can't be your friend because a being you have no real evidence exists, and a religion that is hateful and divisive, is the center of your life, and infects everything you do or say even when you're not talking about it.

4. You're shallow, and narcissistic, and you can be really stupid sometimes.

5. I talk to you only because it would be awkward not to. You are full of shit; I can't tell if you're lying whenever you open your eyes. Normally I'd feel sorry for someone like you, but I don't.

6. I don't believe you when you say you've forgotten about what you did to me. How can you think I'll ever be your friend after that? Surely you at least remember that I didn't talk to you for two years? If I was to ever hate someone, it would be you.

7. You're intelligent and extremely well-dressed, and that confuses me. Aside from your significant other, I'm secretly jealous of you.

8. Grow up. You're very emotional for someone who thinks they're so rational.

9. I'm ignoring you now because I've done it this long already, and it's easier then explaining why.

10. I don't think I want to be your friend anymore, but we still hang out because I feel obligated to you. Mostly, I just can't stand being seen alone at lunch. If I get over that before graduation, then you'll be seeing a lot less of me.

just me said...

I would love to see you say all those loving things to the people you want to say them to, because all of them are positive. If only all of us could approach life this way wouldn't it be a much nicer world? Ok, all together, "smile on your brother, everybody get together, goin to love one another right now, right now, right now......" Damn, you took me back in the time machine, I'll be asking you if you want a hit here in a minute...

Good post as always.

SpongyBones said...

You stop by and smack me around a little then leave me ... cmon' I need some real abuse!

Wizened Wizard said...

Some advice from Auntie Wizard...

Now that you have put your true thoughts into words, go and say or write these things to the people you "wish" you could say them to. Truth and honesty, though sometimes uncomfortable, is seldom a bad thing. Some day, one or more of these friends will be gone, and you will wish you had told them what you really feel.
