I’ve finally had some time to digest a situation that really hurt and left me feeling vulnerable. Without going into too much detail, I had someone treat me like crap. What was funny was I went into Thanksgiving with my new mantra, “What others think about me, is none of my business.” Nothing puts this to the test like being around family because they know us the best and can hurt us the worst. I tried talking to my Mom about it and my hubby and my niece, but what ended up helping me the most was to keep repeating my mantra every time I started to over-analyze the the situation or become overwhelmed by the pain this person caused. There is so much negativity that we invite in by letting people who should cherish us abuse us. I’ve always seen people post about cutting the negativity out of their life, but when it is family and you have to live with them, what do you do?
I’m listening to AWOLNATION, breathing deeply, letting the crappy, bad vibes go. La-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-oh, sail.
