I was friends with someone I’ll call Denise. Early on Raccoon coffee I want to be a nice person but everyone is just so stupid shirt we spent a lot of time together. We had common interests. Early on we talked, rather excitedly, over one another. But I was taught that is rude. I worked at stopping interrupting and trying to listen more, hoping it would set an example. It didn’t work. Our “conversations” became very one-sided. Even if I worked in sideways, she would interrupt me before I said more than a sentence or two. One thing we didn’t share in common was religious belief. I still identify as a Christian, but I don’t embrace many of the concepts Christians hold dear (the idea that God directs everything is one I can’t stand). She, on the other hand, is CHRISTIAN, and God directs her every move, and because of that, she is justified in everything. I won’t say she’s militant but close to it.

I’m not a confrontational person. I probably should have Raccoon coffee I want to be a nice person but everyone is just so stupid shirt addressed the interruptions and other things. I did not. Instead, I became a listener and limited our contact. Denise was in several groups I attended, so we found ourselves in the same spot, often. So over the next few years, I observed what became a pattern, over and over. She frequently rented a room in a house. At first, everything would be wonderful! It was amazing how much they had in common! They attended the same Bible Study or some other something. Then over time, well, it would fall apart. The other person was too needy, or too controlling, or an alcoholic. Then she would move on to the next room for rent that was wonderful. When I first met her, she had been married at least 2 or 3 times before. It was hard to know. After she’d been in our small town for a couple of years, she began dating a really nice local guy. I don’t know him well, but he also had a teenage daughter who needed attention. Denise seemed to fill that spot well. But, as a CHRISTIAN, Denise kept their relationship chaste until they married. (She talked a lot about that.) My husband and I attended that wedding.
