In this monologue, AMILE talks to a long time confident about how the nature of their relationship has changed and they no longer see eye to eye.
Amile: You’ve made me really angry. Your brain has become totally warped. When it was partial, I still had hope for you but now, it’s on a whole other level of brainwashed.
You have a right to have your own point of view and perspective, we all do. And I would never try to change what you think and how you feel about what you think but when it comes to what I do and how you’ve tried to undermine my success, based on the point of view you carry, I get mad. Mad when you use it to criticize my life and principles.
I can’t say I don’t understand where you are coming from and why you think the way that you do but you should have just kept your opinion to yourself. I really don’t need to feel bad about my achievements. I’ve given nothing short of blood, sweat and tears…for years.
(beat) I know that you know this and maybe it wasn’t your intention to upset me, I don’t know, maybe it was…but now that you’ve said it, it’s too late. You’ve affected me and you’ve spoken.
It’s gotten to the point where I am not so sure I want to even continue having you in my life. You aggravate me so damn much that I don’t even know if it’s worth it anymore. I shouldn’t have to feel lousy after speaking to you. I shouldn’t.
It’s good that you’re honest about what you believe in, your thoughts but your relationship with me should come first. It never has, has it?
You don’t realize or wish to admit that there is in fact an even level playing field at work. There are people out there doing the exact opposite of what I do and they are having success. What about them? Is there favoritism for them?
Look at ALL the facts first before you judge me. And if you still want to judge me, do me a favor and don’t cloak what your saying with high minded compliments. I’m far from stupid.
Stop having tunnel vision and start opening your mind because the truth is somewhere in the middle. It’s gray. Gray, gray, gray.
