This is a tough one for me. My dear father used to call me "The Peacemaker". I don't like conflict. I don't like chaos. I want everyone to be happy. But sometimes, life gets messy. I realize I cannot control the behavior of other people. People do mean things. They say mean things. They twist situations and conversations around. Certain people are unable or unwilling to recognize the needs or feelings of others. They feel that every situation revolves around them, and cannot accept when it doesn't. Some people bring chaos and uneasiness and stress to our world, no matter how hard we try to accept or love or help them. As hard as it is, we must find the strength to finally say that enough is enough. And step away from the relationship, for our own peace. For our own health. For our own family. And realize...it's ok.
This is ok.
It really is.
