The more things change...

...the more they stay the same. Rereading some old posts, trying to find a particular one to share with mom and sis, found this one from a while back. Interesting and maybe a little disturbing, the same patterns seem to repeat. I like to think I have a better perspective (e.g., if someone has an issue with me, it's theirs, not mine; have a conversation with me...otherwise, it's none of my business...or whatever.) I like having these posts to go back and reflect on.

  1. This is a tough one, for sure. I know the feeling, but I think I've finally internalized the idea that unless I've truly done something to this other person and I know I've done it, then the issue probably falls to them. If they are not willing to approach me to talk it out, there is nothing I can do; they are not giving me an opportunity to DO anything about it. It's happened to me a few times, and most of those times had to do with personal issues on the part of the other parties, but it doesn't hurt any less. You can let go of it though. It takes practice, but you can let go.
