DO NOT TOUCH THIS BUTTON

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

I have a very small anger button that I thought was well hidden. I also have two family members that love drama and attention. One of their favorite things to do is to stir the family pot. They both stirred the pot yesterday AND found my button. It's been a very long time since someone has found that button.

After sleeping it off, I find that I am still a little unsettled this morning. In a small respect, I feel bad that I spoke my mind. In a bigger respect, I realized some things. I am more confident in myself. This showed me that I am setting healthy boundaries for myself. I am speaking up for myself and what I believe in.

I've been wanting to set up a new and improved schedule for myself ~ one that includes time for me and the things I want to do in the next few months. I couldn't quite get started. Yesterday was a catalyst that I think I needed to do this. It reinforced the need for doing things that are important to me and saying no to the things that I just don't have the time for or just chose not to do. Upward and onward!

    Sometimes you just have to let it out and then move on!

    Sorry to hear someone got your hot button, but it sounds like you're making good out of it and that's awesome. Take good care of yourself!

    For me, your blog is very deep and this is what I mean.

I think it's deep because that's exactly me. I have an anger button that's hidden 99% of the time but when pushed, I do speak for myself AND feel guilty....at first. Like you, I never did this before so it's new to me and I also realized that it is okay. People close to me don't like it, the ones who could step all over me and I did nothing in the name of being a good Christian. But I am learning that it's okay to be also kind to myself AND that I deserve to be treated well and have those kinds of people in my life, and you too, my friend. Thanks for sharing since it gave me pause and it was good emoticon emoticon
LOVE, CHELSEA

    Good for you for speaking your mind! That button exists for a reason. And it sounds like your family members pushing may have been a GOOD thing, even though what happened when pushed seemed not so good. Do what you need to do, Patty. We've got your back!

    Sounds like you are on the right path. I hate how family can find that button faster than anyone else on the planet!
