For the Record

I don't like drama. I don't invite it to be a part of my life. I understand some people thrive in highly emotional states of being and welcome the angst.

Me? Not so much. I'm one of those folks who continuously tests as an ESTJ.

I try to keep at the forefront of my mind we are all different, feel and see things in a way that is real to us, to our situations, to our upbringing, to our current state of being.

Your interpretation of a situation, a conversation, even an article or newscast can be way different than mine simply because we are different. And that is perfectly fine by me. In fact, I celebrate we are not all the same and welcome different perspectives.

I try to speak from a place of truth, candor, honesty and respect all the time. It is never my intent to hurt or be mean spirited. I feel if I get it out there, misunderstandings can and will be avoided. If I'm going to say something about you to someone else, before I say it, I will ensure I'd feel comfortable enough to say it to you or to have it repeated.

With that being said, you might be wondering why I'm riding my horse so high right now.

This is not intended for any one particular person. I simply want to put it out there in the universe. You know the whole law of attraction thought process.

It is a fact a situation from two weeks ago came very close to crossing the boundaries between my professional and personal life. Naturally this has been weighing in the recesses of my brain matter for a few days.

As a result, I woke up a tad irritated because the actions of this other person have resulted in my making the decision to either change locations/days of my Cheers or stop doing so for an extended period of time.

I've moved on from said situation and did what was needed given the circumstances but I'm not happy with the impact it has had. When you mess with my me time like that, I start to feel slightly pissy. So for now I am going to ride my horse, feel good about putting this out here, thank God for keeping it real, and be very thankful drama is not a part of my life. Well, most of the time that is.
Oh how I wish I could...

Peace and Love Peeps.

Wow, sounds like whatever it was - it was a mess. I hate drama.

I'm sorry to hear it messed up your Cheers time, I know you enjoy that.

Hope the drama is over. If not, I'm not sure about a roundhouse, but I do got your back!

I'm not fond of drama either, however, I do go a little snarky bitch from time to time and have to let her do her thing when necessary. ;)
Hey girl, you have both U2 and the Humpty Dance on your playlist and that just flat out ROCKS.
Have a good drama free weekend.

I'm with you! This really hit home for me considering the drama I've been dealing with lately--with a person who thrives on drama, or at least has a much higher tolerance for it than I.

Have a peaceful weekend!
