I was sitting on my bed, working on my cards. I had waited until my daughters were at rest time, before getting started. I wanted uninterrupted concentration.
Thirty minutes before that, I received a call from my daughter’s teacher, checking on us. I also typed up a text, but decided to respond to the incoming text instead. I replied, “What I was going to send would have made you lose your concentration.”
Aaannndddd… that’s it. This choice I made, to not verbalize my thought, “irritated” this individual. Why? Because he/she hates when this happens. “It shows a distrust or lack of conviction.”
This one example opened Pandora’s box. I’m now deep in thought about concepts I hadn’t felt mature enough to realize before. I’m in thought about more of my boundaries. I’m in thought about how energy and vibes affect me.
Not everyone is made for me. Not everyone will mesh with my values, desires, and decisions. No, I’m not asking for robotic duplicates… but, enough commonality within the most important categories in life.
I accept that not everyone is my cup of tea. I have also learned to accept that I can let go of insignificant tension through humor. I’ve learned that tension CAN result in resolution. I’ve learned that conflict doesn’t have to be this wild, enraged out of control tool, …. out to demolish anything of substance between two people.
On the contrary,
Such is life isn’t it? Ebbs and flows of stimulating situations that trigger old or birth new memories. Constantly working within ourselves to positively influence this world?
Maybe I’ve just come to believe that theory CAN be true.
See what happens to me under the influence of life? HAHA!
So much to ponder,
Until Next Time,
Stay Safe, Speak Life, & Spread Kindness
