I had a set back the other day. My reaction, once again, overshadowed the negative behavior of someone else. Lord when will I learn?
I will learn. I will eventually get there. Little by little, I will learn to quiet the incredible anxiety that explodes out of me in an ugly way. I will, one day, be firm in who I am and where my boundaries lie....when I do, I will quietly enforce them, standing firm in the comfort of knowing when too far is too far FOR ME regardless how someone else views it.
Meanwhile, I am allowed to make mistakes. I am a imperfect human being that continues to try to be the best I can be. Despite my errors, I am:
a good friend
a good listener
a pretty good mom
a forgiving ex-wife
a person with empathy
a loving sister
a devoted daughter (despite being an orphan)
a good business woman
a partner who keeps trying
I am breathing, easing the anxiety, gaining back my serenity. Serenity is a beautiful thing.
I am wishing you peace today.
