Dear Jane, (Jealousy, Anger, Naysayers, Enemies)
If you’re reading this, it means things have changed. Actually, it means I’ve changed. I can no longer do this with you and it’s time you moved on. Yes, we’ve had some moments but as I think back on them they haven’t been great. I’ve come to realize that you’re consuming my life, you’re an abuser and I
deserve better. I’m tired of the bruises from falling, I’m sick of the anger and the hurt; it’s messing with my sleep. As for the naysayers, I’ll use them as my motivators. But I won’t continue to allow you to keep me hostage any longer. Today is my release day, I’m finally free!
I know you’re thinking it’s because I’ve met a new roommate and it is. I met this man and He comes with great references. He isn’t messy, He doesn’t bring up mistakes of my past because He says they hinder me and He doesn’t get jealous when I’m around other people; He actually encourages me to love everybody. He said He’ll even feed me. Oh, how I wish I’d accepted Him instead of you, all those years ago. The many times He showed up, I wouldn’t let Him in because of you. But that’s over now!
Thank you for splitting the bills with me but He is going to cover them all. Thank you for keeping me company on those nights I was lonely, He says He’ll do that too. He made me realize that it was actually you who were lonely and needy yet you made me feel like it was me. It’s cool though, we used each other I guess.
Well, I’ve got to go; I hear the moving truck outside. Oh, your things; the bitterness, anger, jealousy, negativity and back biting; they’re in the box by the curb. You have no reason to come into my house anymore. And your keys no longer work, the locks have been changed. As far as where you can go now, well you don’t have a home here so get the hell on! If you happen to stop by and see the house rocking, it’s a praise party in honor of you leaving and you’re not invited. I would say until we meet again but I’d be lying.
Signed yours truly,
Ephesians 4:31 “Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior.
