I did not think anyone would help me, that I had to surrender to ‘fate’ … and then the pressure lifted.
Misunderstandings happen often, and it is the quick reaction that can end a good thing, by causing unneeded hurt feelings to arise in another.
I am not perfect, definitely not, by far.
However I know when I’ve let my emotions lead into reactionary responses, rather than sitting with what has affected me for awhile, and simply respond, or not.
Sometimes, saying noting is the best practice.
So while I will practice this … I must say … thank you, for being here.
