On my mind...

I love being sensitive and I detest it at the same time. Tommorow I am going to have to deal with a very sensitive and to me scary situation. My best friend is having a pumpkin carving soiree at her new house..Lots of fantastic friends and family will be there...unfortunately so will someone who a little over a year ago did some things that hurt me deeply and when I confronted her about them refused to take responsibility and ended all communication with me..while "nurturing" friendships with 2 of my best friends. I know I cannot control who others create friendships with, it is this situation that hurts so much. I have cried about it, talked about it and journalized about this. I take all of my friendships seriously and when the events that hurt my feelings happened I spent alot of alone time thinking on how to handle it- and I know I handled it with love and grace..I feel like I hit closer to this persons truth than I realized.
Truth be told I do not want to go and put myself under undue stress but I also want to face my fear of confrontation. Any advice Ladies?

  1. i can totally understand why you wouldn't want to go. since there are going to be lots of other people there you may not have to have a conversation at all with this person. i say go and let this person see that they don't have any hold on you whatsoever. have a good time and you know what they say, kill them with kindness ;) will be thinking of you. hugs!!

  2. Thanks! I did go and had a wonderful time. The person did not even go. I need to work on using my sensitivity as a benefit and not let it hold me back from situations that can be trying. That's how we grow.
    Have a beautiful week.. Big Hugs!

  3. i am so glad you went. and what a surprise that that person didn't even show up! perfect - just like it was meant to be darling!! so glad you had a good time. hugs!!
