I want to break free!!

Monday, April 29, 2013

Sing it with me now, you know the one by Queen! 'I've got to break free!'

And I did. Last night at my movie club (a subsidiary of the book club) I announced I would no longer be attending the book club because I don't want to be around the founder anymore. She has become very weird and I discovered that everybody else has had the same experience. My true friends were supportive and told me how to extricate myself graciously. I wrote a short email stating that I would no longer be attending book club because my world is just too busy. The truth is I realized just how weird things were last wednesday. My mother warned me about this, she told me that this was a sick and weird person. I gave this person 5 years of chances. I'm done. I'm still a little afraid that she will poison my relationships with my true friends or worse show up at my job. I can't believe emoticon I did this to myself, I actually stayed because I was afraid she would throw a emoticon tantrum. Well, thats the behavior of an abuse victim, I'm not playing that role any longer.

Yeah me!! emoticon emoticon

You know what I did to celebrate? I went for a run this morning!! emoticon emoticon And I weighed in, even though I knew my weight would be up. I took Oprah's advice and stood in my truth. I found not a weight on my shoulders but rather strength in knowing my truth. I am ready to move on in every aspect of my life. I enjoy my new job with my Dad. I am enjoying my exercise. I discovered after a homemade milk shake- I don't really like them anymore. It wasn't as much fun as it used to be. (don't worry it wasn't huge.) I just don't find myself in those anymore. Thats not my source of happy. Its the road now. OMG!!!! Even though I'm working the c25k program again does this mean that I am a runner?????? emoticon

    This is exactly what I did when my bookclub got weird too. There were people in there so jealous of my contributions that I would open my mouth and they would verbally cut me off by interrupting....every time! Bravo to you. I sent an email as well. But I didn't give a reason.

    Decuttering can mean getting rid of toxic people. It takes courage to do what what you did. Congratuations!

    I'm glad that you are going to avoid this woman. People like this make everyone miserable.
