Once an asshole, always an asshole.

I have always been the type of person that believes that everyone should get second chances. In some cases those second chances might turn into third or fourth chances depending on the situation. Regardless, I find myself to be a pretty forgiving person....sometimes TOO forgiving. I hate to think of this as a flaw because the ability to forgive is a GOOD thing, however, I feel like I still can't learn when someone is undeserving of my friendship until I get burned multiple times.

Today I had another reminder from a guy I used to consider a very close friend years and years ago. We haven't spoken in about 2 and a half years. I found out through mutual friends that he is engaged and has a baby on the way. I will be the first to admit that I was very shocked. He hasn't exactly been one to have his life together. Maybe now everything is working out for him and if so good for him!

I received a message from this old "friend" today and it was just to say something mean and completely hateful. It honestly, caught me off guard because I didn't expect it. I thought maybe he had something nice to say. Nope, of course not. Still the same asshole he always was. Just reminded me why I cut him out of my life in the first place.
