Beating anger and stress by not caring.
Thursday, September 20, 2012
I know, the title sounds harsh but I have to do what is best for my heart. I have 3 kids that I am wanting to watch grow up. In order to not kill myself before their wedding, I must eliminate the stress and anger in my life. Last night, I had a drunk cousin, whom I have reached out to and try to be by her side, send me nasty texts on how much she hates me. Why did she send this to me? I have not a clue. There is some drama going on in my family but what is new. Drama happens in all families. Out of the blue, I receive on that says she wants nothing to do with me. The next, 1 minute later says she hates me and have a nice life. Well, there were more texts but I will not repost out of respect since the language was very bad. I did not respond. I was to tired to type but I am glad that I did not. She was drinking, this is her MO so to speak. And you know what, I am okay with that. I stayed calm and mellow and did not get angry or blow up. That felt good. I instead prayed for her and asked God to help heal her.....there really is something to staying calm and I like it!!!
