Lisa and I met at my store to look for clothes for Puerto Rico. As we started to speak, I realized I really needed to get some things off my chest. When I told Lisa that I wanted to move past our issues once and for all, I meant it. Lisa kept saying "Oh, we're past that. It's done." But clearly there were still some underlying issues.
When I brought up the "accusations," I wasn't JUST referring to her bringing up the tabloids -- but also the accusations about Mauricio only befriending people for business. That had NEVER been discussed since Lisa said that at the Reunion last year. Not once. In order to start fresh, I wanted to address that so I could personally move past it.
I care enough about Lisa to move forward but needed to be heard. Last week Lisa questioned why I didn't defend her. . .Maybe because I had never had this conversation and was still hurt and upset by these situations that were swept under the carpet. I wanted to have this conversation so we could get back to where we once were. Lisa said that she was the most loyal friend I ever had. I kept quiet as I felt like we were making progress and wanted to stay on the right track. However, my most loyal friends and I haven't had to have this type of conversation.
At this point, Lisa and I have both felt hurt by one another and it is time to move on from that.
Until next week. . .
