Let it Go

I watched the new episode of the Housewives of Orange County. I know I shouldn’t watch this junk. It’s definitely one of those secret pleasures that I shouldn’t be telling you about. I’m actually a little embarrassed. But Anderson Cooper is watching it. He’s admitted it. So it can’t be that bad right? Actually, I think he watches the Atlanta one…which I also watch…

So anyway, I watched the new episode today. It seems to me that the OC cast seems to have the most issues. Are they snobbier than the rest or is it just me?

Of all the housewives, I think Tamra bothers me the most. She seems to be the most judgmental and acts more superior than the others. To me, she’s getting older and her whole identity was dependent upon being young and beautiful. And now that she’s losing that, I think she’s having a hard time.

I understand that too. I’m no longer young and skinny. There are times where I look at my old clothes and wonder where did all that time go? I look at my old pictures and think, Jeez, I was hella skinny. But I also think about those times and think about how young I really was and I had something to prove. I don’t feel like that so much anymore.

I’ve come to a point in my life where I’ve let it all go. Life’s too short to hold on to anything, especially those petty things said under stress or flippantly or said without thought. I’ve even let things go that were said with a mean spirit.

Most recently, an acquaintance said that my new haircut made me look older. I ignored her because she says such things. Then she repeated even louder for everyone to hear. I had a whole series of retorts that were both negative and personal attacks, and I said none of them. There are more important things in life than holding on those sorts of things. So if there were issues at some point, I’ve wiped it all clean and I’m pretending that none of it happened. What about you?
