I’m not one to play games by any definition of the phrase.
I like Clue & Cards Against Humanity & that’s about it. Maybe Strip Poker but time & place, right? 😉 Games aren’t my bag & haven’t been since I was a little girl. I know the reason for that. All I have are memories of me begging my family to spend time with me & play with me but they’d rather watch TV. Yeah, it’s painful but it formed me into this person who doesn’t do games.
But we can discuss my parents some other time.
Today, I want to talk about the mental games people play. I don’t do that. I don’t like how passive-aggressive & deceptive it is. Shit like, “Oh, I’m gonna say, ‘it’s okay’ but it really isn’t” or “Let’s see if he does what I want if I do this or say that.”
LH & I were talking about this earlier today. We both agreed that we’d much rather have someone be direct with their intentions. Being direct doesn’t mean you’re being a dick about it. You can be honest & respectful without being said dick.
In my experience, I’ve found women to be the manipulators & maybe that’s why I’ve always been better friends with men. I would have friends who said we were good or they didn’t want me to have to go or it was their turn to pay or whatever. Only to wait until later when I found out we weren’t good, they wanted to me to go, & I needed to pay. Every time this happens I think, “Why didn’t you tell me?”
As much as I would love to have telepathy, I don’t. I can only work with the information you’ve given me. And I’m going to assume that you’re honest with me. So unless you tell me otherwise, I’m going to continue to assume that everything is good or bad (depending on how we last left our conversation).
Some of my favorites (sarcasm) are when people are like, “Well, you should just know.” Bish, I don’t know shit. I’ve got my own hell I’m dealing with. And because I’m so focused right now on just making it through the day, I’m not gonna be perceptive or intuitive to what you’re going through. Send me a message & we’ll talk it out. I don’t understand what’s so difficult about that.
