|Stay the course, Dornaa…|
I woke up this morning still tumbling a negative thought in my head, of whether or not to confront someone about a ‘thing.’ The reason this person did this thing, (and this is the second time), is because they don’t know me. They made an assumption. Now I’m old enough to have been around this block once or twice: do people change? Or, by being honest with “how you made me feel” trope can you make them see your point of view? /shrug I don’t know. I was thinking if it happens three times then I’ll say something, but that is officially going into festering territory. What I do know about people are the things that are important to them do not translate into what’s important to us. The problem is when I confront someone emotionally I tend to tear up. I can’t do this, namely because this person tends toward bully territory, and will misconstrue tears as weakness, not anger. (Yes, this person is a female: gender makes no difference when it comes to bully acuity.)
Maybe I’ll keep this image that Cynwise posted today, and just set the whole thing on mental fire:

Time to toughen up. Know I am strong. Show I mean business. And I do. I’ve been down this road before.
