And You're How Old?
Sometimes folks just don't have a grasp on reality. Sometimes folks who are well into adult-hood have the capability of behaving like spoiled little brats. Sometimes I am one of these folks.
This is not something I am proud of and it definitely flies in the face of everything I truly believe in. But there are times when I let others steal my joy and I become a spoiled brat ready to take them out at the knees. Just who do they think they are? Don't they see how flawed they are? Do I REALLY need to point it out to them and anyone else will listen?
This is a very negative energy that gone unchecked can become a consuming flame. At the close of day when I do an examination of conscious I am always wholeheartedly ashamed of myself and disappointed in my behavior. Why can't I stop the spoiled brat syndrome before I let it take over? What do I care if others like me or don't; take pride in their work or don't; are kind to others or aren't? Who am I to be the judge and jury? After all, letting others steal my joy says much more about me than my condemnations say about them.
Sigh...I have a few more weeks of Lent to try and figure it out. I am way too blessed to allow others the power to stress me. Until then, say a little prayer for me along with a gentle reminder how I am a grown woman...sometimes I need to remember to act like one.
