what a ruse to send me a note saying she wishes I were there.
Perhaps the months leading up to this were simply an artifice as well. It wouldn't surprise me, in a hobby where the character of the person seems to take precendence over the integrity of the animal.
No one leaves their ego at the door even though they disguise it with humility and flattery - the easiest way to wiggle their way into the trust of another.
nothing about the relationship could be described as abstemious. Giving; in ways that cannot be calculated, or figured into true financial figures unless I were going to be heartless. She gave in ways that were (in retrospect) obviously ploys to bargain for strong-arming in the future. However, she didn't take into account that I've finally been pushed around far too many times and have had it up to here (pointing to throat).
Why do people take advantage of others and then try to reverse the accusations and psychology of the actions? Is it their guilt or do they honestly believe their own actions are not damaging and reprehensible?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
