I owe Anerlisa Muigai an apology
I can’t believe I’m saying this but I Anerlisa Muigai an apology. Has been made abundantly clear by the fact that I got everything about her relationship with Ben Pol completely wrong. Well, I wouldn’t go as far as to say I got everything wrong, however, I did get the foundational aspect of it wrong.
For the longest time I had assumed that it was he who walked away from the marriage. Was under the impression that he got tired of having to deal with her and her shenanigans. Very recent interviews seemed to vindicate the assumptions I was making. Oh how wrong I was!
In one fell swoop, Anerlisa Muigai managed to render us under those assumptions in such complete fashion you cannot help but feel some faint pity on the foolish simp that is Ben Pol. After his ill-advised view, she posted screenshots of how badly he was simping in her DMs and I can’t help but feel completely disgusted at how weak and spineless he has proven to be.
The level of incongruence he has exhibited is simply jarring. Think back to a complaint Anerlisa raised about her ex-husband; she complained he would entertain a lot of female attention. For some reason, he is operating off a scarcity mindset behaving as if she were God’s gift to Earthpedestalize in her and making it seem like she’s the best thing since sliced bread.
It boggles the mind and makes one wonder what exactly it was he believes he could only get from Anerlisa Muigai. What is it that is making a bona fide superstar crumple into being a weak simp.
I owe her an apology because from the text she said it is abundantly clear that while relationships fail because of both parties involved she was unfairly saddled with most of the blame by myself and it is abundantly clear that she is the one who has healed and moved on whereas he is still pining and crying for what once was.
Indeed it reinforces our lesson I was taught as a child, “do not judge a book by its cover”.
