As the south eastern coast prepares for the upcoming storm, it got me to thinking about my ex who now lives in Florida; the land of milk and honey according to him. I hope with all my heart the storm blows out to sea and hurts no one...........but him.
Let me explain - I wish like in the Wizard of Oz, that a tornado would come, and blow him to a planet where he is treated like he treats everyone else in his life; with callous disrespect, and an eye on what he can leach off of them. I know in my heart he would still not get the point, because he lacks of any feelings or empathy, and would just have to adjust his "game" to get what he wants. He really is the "Wizard of Ass."
Please believe me, I really don't wish him any ill will. I have long since given up on the hope that he will wake up the the reality of who he is and what he does, decide to heal, and find a better life for himself. Sadly, he doesn't feel the need to change, since he gets all of his needs met from others. It really just hurts my heart to see a life wasted, and a soul that does not grow and learn. That is just so very sad.
We all have choices to make in this life and have to live with the beauty and the consequences of our actions. Some in the path of the upcoming storm will decide to evacuate, some will batten the hatches and stay put, and others will throw a hurricane party. Each one of those is a valid path that once chosen will decide your destiny in the aftermath of the storm.
The ex has chosen to destroy everyone he comes in contact with, by discarding them once he has used them up, like a tornado clearing a path. What he fails to understand is those who survive his destruction, can choose to rebuild an even stronger version of themselves and not only survive him, but thrive it the aftermath of the storm.
May God protect all of us who are, or were in the path of the Wizard of Ass.
