I just honestly don't get it. She claims everyone has the right to do whatever they want, and yet, when I disagree with her on an issue, she can't agree to disagree and back off? We had an argument several months ago about nationalized health care. She's vehemently against it. I respect why. She has MS and got screwed over on her meds big time when everything changed. Her bitterness regarding the entire program makes sense and is probably completely justified. But instead of hearing me say how NHS in the UK saved mine and Alex's lives, that I 100% supported it and would no matter what she said, and that we would just have to agree to disagree because I respected her opinion on the matter but it wasn't going to change my experience, she spent three hours and a dozen more comments trying to engage me in a fight to change my mind.
People like that are a waste of energy. There are far more important things in my life for me to focus on than to worry about what a woman I probably don't know anymore thinks. She's not the open-minded, free-spirited, generous girl I once knew. I miss that girl. I won't miss the woman she became.
