(aka blog friends)……I was a very naughty girl today.
I have tried so hard over the last years to be a loving, non judgemental, patient, blah blah blah……better person. Really.
I totally lost my cool.
I was NOT this sweet little girl.
I told someone exactly what I thought of them.
And I have to say…….
that although it did not bring me any….
……I don’t regret a single word.
This person said something under the guise of being helpful that was actually very hateful and demeaning. And this person knew it. Of course when confronted they said “I don’t know what you mean, I was only trying to help.”
And it was directed towards…….
Must we always defend our children, regardless of their age?
Even years and years after they have flown the nest?
And are all grown up.
That mother hen instinct is just so engrained in us, don’t you think?
Besides, I have the feeling that this person enjoys doing this to other people and probably does it quite often. Sometimes, maybe you just have to say “shame on you.”
If only that was all I had said.
I can see my Mother shaking her head and saying “sometimes you act just like your father.”
I’ll put on my dunce hat and go stand in the corner for the rest of the evening.
Ashamed of myself.
