Yesterday my brother got bitten by a redback spider. He ended up going to hospital twice because the pain medication the doctors gave him wasn’t enough. He described the pain as “it feels like my fucking legs and back are broken”. He was bitten on the calf muscle.
It’s kind of a funny story because my brother, a 24 year old, 6 foot 2 man, is shit scared of spiders. Irrational fear is now rational.
So I used to be friends with this girl from when I was 13 until my 15th birthday. We stopped being friends ON my 15th birthday because she purposely ruined it for me. She wasn’t the greatest friend to me so I went and found some new friends. For the rest of highschool I always considered her a bitch because of the way she treated me.
Now, a fair few years after high school, she is doing well. Like REALLY well. She is a law grad now. She has spoken at Women empowerment functions and has travelled the world.
She is facebook friends with my brother who I know doesn’t really know her. He sent her a happy birthday message.
I keep on seeing her as this bitchy mole of a person but I know I am really just jealous. I don’t want to hate her because of what happened in high school. I want to move on and get on with my own life. But it is hard!
