Care for yourself so that you can better care for others. Being yourself does not preclude ethics or compassion. Speaking your truth does not need to entail being a lesser person. <3
so correct...when you feel good about who you are and where you are and what you want life is much better...
You should definitely take care of yourself! Don't go out to purposely hurt others but your feelings are important.
Thank you Heidi, Anne, and Robert for hanging in there. My natural reaction of the past would be to lash out to prove a point. However, in this situation, I have purposely stayed quiet to protect the innocent. I don't have to be a prisoner of my feelings, nor do I HAVE to respond at all. Not caring is more about realizing that I cannot change the facts, and I must accept them as is it. I need to pull the emotion out, without taking away from SELF. That is my lesson.
A close friend of mine is going trough a divorce right now. She has been "playing nice" and taking the short end of the stick the whole time, trying to make everything go away. She just wants it to be over.A month ago, we talked some more, and she decided to take a stand for herself. Last week, her ex-husband finally finished moving his stuff out, and the house is almost ready to go on the market.Sometimes it is a good thing to "rock the boat" let people know that you are a person too.
I posted a quote today. “Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it." Although, I want to "rock the boat", however I think walking away is my way, of taking care of myself. I think, as humans, we get to the point of wanting to control everything that we think needs our hand.The more I do nothing, I realize that nothing is the right answer for me. I have been beating myself up, and going through my own process to move on. I will lose people close to me, but what is to say that was God's plan to begin with? How else will they grow?
