I have already learned that you have to purge all the negative from your life in order to be truly happy. I’ve been there. I know that feeling of happiness, and will have it again very soon (hopefully by this afternoon). However, I made the mistake of trusting someone who sat on my couch and lied to me repeatedly. Looked me right in the eye and lied. Then announced for all the world to hear, that she was my very best friend. Well, her life is an absolute train wreck. I’m watching, everyday, as she digs herself deeper and deeper and she’s spiraling out of control. I have forgiven myself for being a fool and I have forgiven her, as she’s obviously unstable and a perpetual liar, she no longer can decipher truth from fiction. I can feel my life settling back into that comfortable, happy, stress free place, and I like this feeling. It means I’m back on track. I was momentarily distracted, but that’s done. I will no longer allow anyone to bring their troubles into my home, as it does put a dent in my way of life. I have figured out how to be truly happy. Those bringing problems to my doorstep, in an attempt to have me help fix them, are perfectly capable of fixing their problems on their own. If I can do it, so can they. And I did it by myself, so they can too. It’s a matter of looking within instead of placing blame. It really is that simple.
So, I will fully admit that I invited this crap right in. Well, now I’m kicking it out. I no longer feel sorry for these grown adults making stupid decisions. They have to learn from their mistakes. I can’t solve all their problems for them, nor do I even want to. I’ve got a son to raise and priorities. They are not one of them. I’ve got a man who loves me, and who I happen to be head over heels in love with. Why jeopardize that for this nonsense? It’s not worth it at all.
Today, I will spend my day reading, catching up on blogs and perhaps writing. This book isn’t going to write itself…
I hope you all have a great day! Happy Blogging!
