misunderstandings

Friday, February 26, 2010

There are times in life when your intentions are misunderstood. It doesn't matter why or how it gets that way but only what you choose to do in response.

I don't like to tell people much about my self. It leaves me feeling vulnerable or ashamed of things in my life. Today I was pushed beyond my comfort zone.

Typically this would make it easy to run away, hide, agree I was wrong and bury my face. This time I am trying very hard to keep my head raised despite the disapproval.

I choose to see this as an opportunity to be brave and refocus on why I came back, to help others in DwD. Through helping others we ultimately help ourselves.

    Thanks for making your voice heard for a new member to the team who doesn't have any of the history. I understand that feeling of vulnerability and shame. I hope you can move beyond them and this sounds like a good step. I love my new found strength and the reality that the same belongs to the perpetrator, not me!

    Lulu, I think you're terrific and I'm very glad you came back. I second HELLOKITTY70 -- I'm here if you want to vent or talk.

    I agree with you on how helping others we ultimately help ourselves. Sooo, I'm here if you need me, to listen, to vent, whatever.
    Take Care,
