Smitten with Him

grown-up stuff happens here sometimes


on October 23, 2018

This is a comment a friend of mine made.

It upset me more than I can explain or understand…

It was strange how I reacted so strongly to a simple, ignorant statement.

For some reason I felt the need to educate her in a gentle and friendly way.

I thought for quite a while on what I wanted to say.

My comment was very basic. I just wanted her to open her eyes a tiny bit. It wasn’t important to me that she understand the concept entirely.

It’s kind of like a pet name. Like Baby or Sweetheart or Honey.

Her reply, “Those I could see. But daddy nope.”

That upset me even more – like where I was crying crazy tears and sobbing.

At that point, I had nothing else to say to her and I deleted my comment. I knew it would just get more frustrating if she wouldn’t even concede that simple point (which was all I was trying to make).

Since that moment half a year ago, I have broken up with my Daddy and my life has changed drastically. But every once in a while, I still think about how her simple (and ignorant?) words made me feel.

And, now that my Daddy is no longer a part of my life, do I still feel the same way?

    I’m so sorry about your break up as well as your friend…some people feel like pushing their thoughts/belief’s onto others makes them smarter or special but that doesn’t make it true. The term Daddy/Big Daddy has been around in the South for GENERATIONS. She can go and talk to my Aunt about calling my Uncle Daddy and see what that gets her LOL

Talk to me :-)
