Not Forgotten

"people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Reading this reminded me of a conversation I had with someone I thought was a friend. We argued about the details of an incident that happened over 10 years ago. Regardless of what was said and done by both parties, to this day I distinctly remember how I felt because it forever changed the way I viewed them. I said "I would respect you more if you said you don't remember saying or doing that than to call me a flat out liar, because I know how I felt and that hasn't changed."

When someone disrespects you and attacks your self esteem, its not easily forgotten on your part. Maybe it is on theirs. I don't want an apology. I just want them to acknowledge that my feelings are real. Im not holding my breath for it, though.
