Catalyst Six – Done

This week’s catalyst
is about “Someone or something that really frustrates you. Feel free to
vent, but in a therapeutic way.”

I’ve been hurt many times by people who seemed like they were my friend
but turned out not to be so. I decided to dedicate this week’s layout to
them. I used crackle paint and then inked it. I also made my own
background. I took a photo of one of my such friends and me and
scratched her face out and tore the photo. This was indeed very
therapeutic for me.

Journaling reads:

yes, i’m talking to you. i thought you were my friend. now i can see
that you don’t even know what it means to be a friend.

if there’s one thing i hate in the world more than anything else, it’s
people being one thing to your face and another behind your back. i
wouldn’t take that from anyone and i am surely not taking it from you.

i was surprised, at first.

then i was sad.

and then mad.

now i’m finished.

  • Karen,

    I think this was my favorite of today’s responses. I could identify completely!

  • Wow, this page is amazing! I read through your journaling and was reminded of a VERY similar situation that slapped me in the face last year.

    I have not been brave enough to scrap it, but now see that it could be a very good thing to do.

    Thank you for sharing.
