>My uncle’s psycho ex-wife has married for the 3rd time. To put it lightly, this irks me. While most of the time I can be an open-minded individual, if someone hurts my family, I get very angry. I know I should forgive her, but I feel that she doesn’t deserve to be happy. She deserves to be as miserable and alone as I am.
Another part of me screams, “UNFAIR!” This horrible woman cheated on my uncle and made his life as well as the lives of their children hell. Twenty-five years ago, I knew she was a nutcase. Ah, the clarity of a child. Now, here I am a fairly sane, well-adjusted adult, and I can’t get to date number three while that crazy slut is getting married again.
I know that I shouldn’t compare myself to her, but when I hear news like this, I feel like a failure. Yes, I know her newest husband is probably just as insane as she is, but she still found him. She probably acted like a total whore, cheated on him multiple times, generally treated him like less than a piece of crap, and still he married her. Is it that I garner too much respect from my suitors? Do I need to act like a bimbo who is one sandwich short of a picnic with serious Daddy issues? Do I have to treat men like total shit, play mind games, and completely undermine their self-esteem? Honestly, I wouldn’t even know how to consciously go about doing any of that.
