A, we all have moments in our past we are not proud of. I have betrayed someone I called a friend (hey, we’re still friends, so I guess she forgave me) and I still feel like shite about it. Point is, everyone ends up in these horrible situations at some point in their lives. Typically, it will be as an adolescent/pre-teen/teenager/tween. This is the time when we are most confused, vulnerable, wanting to be accepted, etc. You are a terrific friend right now, so try to focus on that instead of torturing yourself about not so shiny moments in your past.

“Because I Love You” is cheesetastic! I used to love that song back in the day. No shame. “Masterpiece,” though? Zoiks. I listened to all sorts of sappy, mindless pop ballads back in the day. Who didn’t? Sometimes when I hear them in the grocery store on Muzak, I’ll smile to myself.

Oh I’m definitely not torturing myself about it. It was a shit thing to do, but I’ve never felt guilt over betraying anyone. I only felt guilty for not being a stand-up person and admitting that I spilled the beans.

I really was a shit friend to a lot of people though. Then again, when I look at those other people, they were kind of shit friends to me, so it’s just par for the teenage course really. I constantly marvel at the human capacity for cruelty and how we inflict it on others. We’re an incredibly self-destructive species, that’s for sure.

“Because I Love You” was just bad bad bad bad bad. LOL I still can’t believe I spent money to own that song. Yeesh. It’s one of the few songs from my high school days that I haven’t since downloaded an MP3 for. I just can’t do it. I think my eyeballs would implode.
