One cannot control the actions or reactions of others. All we can control is our own actions and reactions. I know this to be true but there are days when I get dissappointed in others and no amount of rationalization makes a difference.
Today I opened a door for someone who left my life suddenly and at a really bad time. And she didn't walk through it. I'm glad I took the risk--the end of that friendship was a loose end that needed tying up--but it still smarts that the risk bit me in the ass.
So now I'm eating grapes and watching Scully roll around in the grass and trying not to be dissappointed about something I can't control.
