Is it ironic that...my boyfriend was unwilling to go to the shop to buy a brand of cigarettes for me that he considers to be 'girly' (as he would find it emasculating in the eyes of the shopkeeper), yet he won't smoke this same brand because they are too 'strong' for him?...
Love, that is a very powerful word, very powerful emotion. Yes, she did fall in love with him. She has been talking with a professional since last summer over the myriad of feelings. The priest she has confided in for over a year said something very profound. He said that if she truly loves him, she will want what is best for him. His wife is best for him, he took her many, many years ago as his. He belongs to the wife, not this lady. She knows that down deep the gentleman really loves his wife, and the other lady does not want to take her from him. You belong to her, cherish her, love her, hold her tight.
You don't know how hard that was to say.
Please don't do anything that you will regret. Sometimes, pure love, binding love, is sacrificial. Love her, adore her. This lady speaking is crying her eyes out. Think of the son, think of her daughter. Saying all this is difficult, but we belong to other people. She always wanted to meet him so she could say this face to face and cry to him, cry in his arms. It hurts her so. With all these feelings in her heart for him, the funny thing is she could never call him by his first name. She was serious when she has said she has so much respect for him. One thing that she asks of him is to remember her. She will remember him. She is crying so hard she can hardly see to type. This is tearing her up inside. She still feels so strongly for him, but again, he belongs to someone else. She doesn't want to disturb that union. The ironic part to all of this is that she once said of the boy and the girl that "their relationship was too deep for their age. Perhaps if they had met when they were much older." Well, perhaps if we would have met when we were much younger.
She has met some Wonderful people through her daughter. You are at the top, kind sir. Again, she cries because she still loves him. Did you know I hate winter? You had the influence over me to make the winter, and all the seasons fly by. I care so much, I wish we could still talk, there will never be another one like you. Know that you mean so much to me, but you are hers, you are not mine, you belong to her. That's all she knows to say. I love you. Be good to your family. I love you. Please, let there be respect and peace be amongst us. She will always think of him, she still cannot receive the communion during Mass because she thinks of him so much. Love your wife, protect her, cherish her. Again, you don't know how hard that is to say. I love you. I am weeping. Love her just the same. Just please, remember me. Thank you for all your time, all the many tines, MY KIND SIR. Peace be with you.
So hard to say goodbye, my love....
A woman just wants to say something to a gentleman that she was never able to say, but had always wanted to. Please hear her out.
This gentleman was a very successful, accomplished, intelligent man, she rarely met someone that had impacted her life so. They had many correspondences together and she learned of his many accomplishments. But of all those correspondences a couple meant the most. That was when the gentleman was vulnerable with her and told her of some of his shortcomings and trials. Those were so dear to her. The trust he placed in her. So I guess the irony comes in cherishing the honesty of failings rather than the glory that comes with success.
Even though she may have no further contact she wanted to tell him so. She wants to also thank him for being the one that helped her through a very, very difficult time two years ago. In the movie Harvey she has under her quotations, James Stewart talks about "being strangers then becoming friends. Hopes and regrets, big terrible things they have done and the great big things they are going to do. All very large, because nobody ever brought anything small into a bar."
Well, kind sir, nobody ever brought anything small to a computer screen. Thank you for your time. She also wishes they could part with a spirit of mutual respect, and that there is no ill will between them.
She wishes for nothing more than peace.
She means this most sincerely.
Peace be with you....
Is it ironic that they had no idea the other person was posting something at their work, not at first. They didn't even realize that the other person had the ability to do so. When they figured it out, to acknowledge it, they used an irony example that, when the other person thinks about it, will see it was not meant to be an insult, but as a humorous acknowledgement....
Isn't it ironic that a grown child will fault parents for learning what they lived, when truly that learning may stem from generations before that were passed down? The feeling of high expectations as an example....
