Is life too short to put up with the wrong people in your life?
This is where I am at after a challenging weekend with a certain person that likes to land on our door…stir the pot…then leave…usually in tears because we don’t visit her enough or because she hasn’t succeeded in her naughty little games.
We lead a very happy life. Things haven’t been perfect but generally speaking our life is full of happy times and gut laughs. Because we choose it to be that way.
We have met with some huge challenges in our marriage but nothing has come between our friendship and therefore our marriage is solid.
There has been times when we have had to take a step back from certain people and situations because we felt it wasn’t good for us and therefore not good for our little family. I guess what I am saying is we protect what we have.
I know we are criticized for this. I know others do not understand this.
But, I don’t care.
The right person builds you up, shares a conversation, supports you, cherishes your friendship and respects you and your family. You look forward to sharing more time with them.
The wrong person has an agenda, visits to fact find and leaves you feeling slightly depressed…then gutted when their words to others make their way back to you. They do not respect you or your family. You dread the next catch up.
Do you tend to avoid those that steal your happy?
Or like me in the past, do you try over and over to put up with them and ignore issues then try everything to make them happy to avoid problems?
Bit heavy for a Monday I guess…but that is where I am at.
