1. When a person tells you "You're lucky I even allow you to be in my life"
WOAH NELLY!! Wait, what? How is that even remotely possible? I'm one of the best friends you will ever have! (Haha. My ego)
What do I want?
I want vibrant pulsating connections that are mutually beneficial.
"Alright, I must go now"
2. When a person doesn't accept you as is. (I can feel that sort of thing. Instantly, can't you?)
What do I want? Acceptance. Because I give that very freely....
"Thank you, and no"
3. When a "See you next Tuesday" comes out of a person's mouth because they can't control you and they have let their bar drop so low so quickly that there is no other option, really.
Such a gift to me. So much value these 3 people gave me.
I went to work.
I feel so very lucky to be in my own life. (I still think I'm the best friend anyone could ever have!!!)
I accept myself so fully. Very pleasurable to be ME.
I speak to myself tenderly, kindly, and with great dignity.
That's not to say...I didn't react or that I was the queen of eloquence as I was moving through these gifts...but you know, since I accept myself... And am kind to me...it's okay.
There are always two people in any situation after all...
