trying to respect the pink sisterhood

light_pink_rose_by_thecr8tive1-d4xcyrbThe past few days I have been experiencing something new: a fellow breast cancer survivor who has no respect for the pink sisterhood.

The proverbial thin pink line of the pink sisterhood is sort of that unwritten rule where you don’t attempt to inflict anything bad on a fellow breast cancer survivor.

So I have run into this woman.  Younger than I am. Also a survivor.

Without boring you with all the gory details, the Cliff Notes version is this woman lives somewhere in my community and disagreed with me on some things.

She could have approached everything differently than she did.  The end result is she has created this weird war that she is the general of, that she is the primary player of. She is not doing anything overtly although most actions are fairly obvious as to intent, but there is a whole lot of passive aggressiveness going around.

It’s kind of crazy and she is creating this unpleasant atmosphere.  She is also bizarrely competitive.  She is the kind of person who loves to be like “Look at Me I’m Sandra Dee”. There is so much horn tooting going on, her hand must be tired.  Working, raising a family, and so on is not so unusual provided we are healthy enough to do it right? It’s not new ground being broken, it’s LIFE. Hell, it’s what we all do if healthy enough to do so, right?

Not everyone is the same. I am fine with that.  But to target another breast cancer survivor so she can play a game of whomever gets all the toys wins that I am not playing is weird.

You have to feel almost sorry for people who do things like this at the same time you find their behavior morally reprehensible.

I am trying to keep my side of the street clean and respect the pink sisterhood, even if clearly she does not.

She is the person you pray for to find inner peace.  I hope she gets what she needs out of this, poor thing.  It’s a whole mean girl thing going on.

Truly sad.

    October 29, 2016, Honolulu: Just received a call from this outfit. Very pushy, requesting $135 to $150. Luckily I found this when I googled the name. I hung up.
