There is a first time for everything. I don’t think I’ve ever done a part two blog posting. My thoughts usually don’t last that long. But, after my last post, I had a bit of feed back from friends and others and I wanted to clarify some things.
Yes, I am on a new path of self-rediscovery. This means I have set new boundaries in my life and dusted off some old ones that I was missing. This does not, however, mean I have become a self centered, non feeling witch who only cares about herself. Quite the contrary.
I love people, especially the people in my life right now. You are all important to me. You help me be who I am. I love serving and doing things for other people. When I say I am going to change my focus and stop doing things I feel others have pushed me to do, that doesn’t mean I am going to get rid of all those people. I’d have to get rid of some of my kids. And I kind of like them. I am just using that word “no” a bit more. No, I won’t run you to Ulta in the middle of the night to get make up because you forgot to plan ahead. I’m tired and I’ve been out all day. No, I won’t let you take the car because you refuse to get a job and follow the house rules. It’s stuff like that. My hope is that not only will it lessen my stress and make me happier, it will also help others see that they actually need to have responsibility for themselves. Especially my children.
Those of you that have decided to take personal offense to my self revival are seriously missing out. When I am “me,” I am funner and happier and must less intense. I like the real me. I’m sorry for those of you that feel threatened by someone that has boundaries, and a desire to be true to themself. It seems a shame, really. I think that given the choice, I’d much rather be with a real person than someone that was fake or pretending or just trying to make me happy. Wouldn’t you? Cause I said so.
