Have you ever?


Have you ever had to make the decision to keep the negative out of your life, even if that included family members? I’m there right now, have been for sometime, but have gotten to the point that I feel I need to just rid myself of the negative people in my life. You know the type, the ones that have nothing to say to you but ugly, hateful things, the ones that love to cause discord, the ones that make holidays a nightmare. mad

It’s been like this for a few years, put up with a helluva lot, overlooked even more, just because “it’s family” but you know there’s a time when you say, “enough’s enough” even if it wasn’t something traumatic that caused you to come to such a decision. It just happened to be the icing on the proverbial cake.

So my family circle gets a little smaller, makes my Christmas list even easier then doesn’t it? You know….I actually feel better already!   innocent

    *sigh* … When you come from a family as dysfunctional as mine was… well… let’s just say I began downsizing when I was 13. By 48 I had it pretty much narrowed down to one or two nieces and a sister-in-law! It’s made MY Christmas list way short! But that was just MY family… we still had Hubby’s family to deal with. (and where dysfunctional counts – they run a close 2nd to MINE!) Oy. I know EXACTLY of what you speak … and I know if you’ve made the decision, it was the RIGHT one! thumbsup

    thumbsup Life is too short to sweat the small stuff. Just know that the ones who love you, love you for the wonderful person you are, not who they want you to be. Have a great week my sister.
