Minding my own business ..


Ohhh that's a hard one for me.  I tend to think I know what's best and get to meddling.  I did something today that at first gave me a little anxiety and then I realized my motives were pretty clean and I handled it in an appropriate way .. I tried to keep it about me and what my observations are, what my hopes were and was very clear this was a one off .. meaning .. I understand this isn't my business however I believe I do have the right to say something and I won't revisit it again. 

It's also not up to me in terms of the outcome.  We'll see how this goes .. I do see this as a defining moment though.  I feel good about how I handled it and my motives.  I am responsible for what I say not how someone receives it.   They have the right to respond how they see fit. 

It's the letting go part of it that I'm struggling with .. LOL.

Hugs S :)

Lol relatable about the kiddo.. still on track for January move out. Kid has been super respectful which puts me in the spot of having to behave in a reasonable way lol!!!!! This is boyfriend's oldest adult child. Both of them need a spanking I swear I don't know who's more pig headed .. ..the longer it goes on the more pride and ego that gets to flaring. I don't do this covert crap .. and I find staying in my lane speaking my truth a lot less stressful. We will see. Lol.
