How was your day? I'm getting up early tomorrow, so I have little time tonight to devote to
this evening's post. Soon, I need to hunker down, and sleep.
With most of what I share in this inn, I re-work it. Clear writing requires effort; spontaneity alone does not suffice.
I'd recommend checking out any post submitted, the following day. It is as likely as the sun rising tomorrow morning that you'd see a more in-depth version of the original post. Just saying......
***************Dealing With Disappointment
Did you notice that Tuesday, I shared in this post I encountered a big-time disappointment? Indeed, it was a surprise requiring time for me to process, emotionally and mentally. I continue to work on this issue.
What did I learn from this upsetting news? I learned that I am emotionally maturing----even at my age. Wow.
I shall take care of me. Communicating the disappointment and irritation I feel with the perturbing person will happen soon enough. Sharing my dismay with this individual----that I'm not happy with their lack of candor and transparency is making an amends to me. I am not tolerating unacceptable behavior.
The unpleasant revelation that unfolded last week makes me uncomfortable relating with this person. The amazing music from the phenomenal symphony created by our budding friendship screeched to a hideously sounding and unexpected halt as the needle of unexpected truth dug across the LP of our relationship.
This individual's lack of honesty is troubling, frustrating. S/he was not forthright. I do not like being misled. Deceit and sins of omission are as welcome as new blister on my foot, just before running in a marathon.
Perspective bred from recovery and ten years of intense personal growth, I am grateful for. I'm thankful for my policy of holding all new relationships with an open hand. Am I glad.
I appreciate discovering this person's nature during the month-and-a-half we've been relating, rather than years later. I'm glad my Pablo Piper People Picker is healthy and alert, giving me needed perspective.
What I wrestle with is knowing that it's important to accept the bad, along with the good. No one is perfect. It's also important having clarity, honesty, integrity and congruence in any relationship. That didn't happen with that person. There's the quandary. More to be revealed, when I have more time.
How About You?
How do you know when to let go of a relationship? For me, I don't brook deceit or manipulation. I'd love hearing your thoughts
