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!!!

    Saying a prayer for your cousin was EXACTLY the right thing to do, in conjunction with remaining calm, which is a given! Good for you!

    I know this exact felling that your having when you suddenly stay calm and just let go!!! I had this same epiphany a few years back. I kept letting other peoples words or actions bother me and then one day I just decided I was done and walked away from it. I found out it was more to do with me respecting myself enough to not put up with there drama then it was about them. Love yourself first and keep on that path!!! You're headed in a very positive direction!!! :) emoticon
