You know what really burns my toast? Meanness and general drama/pettiness/discomfort among friends!
I’m kind of out of practice about it (luckily) but in the last couple of days, I’ve been letting some things get to me. My feelings have been very hurt. I’ve had a pit in my stomach when I read texts and messages. And it really sucks.
I just want people to get along. I just want to have nice, easy friendships. I have no interest in making/having enemies. What mom of young children has the friggin’ time for that, you know? NONE OF US, THAT’S WHO!
Moving forward, I’m going to stick with these four agreements — especially the second one and the fourth one — so I can stop feeling bad as a result of what other people say and do (or don’t do).
I may not be able to change anything, but at least I can do everything in my power to (A) stay out of drama, and (B) not let things get to me. I refuse to let my feelings be hurt anymore.
Why can’t we all just be friends?
Kumbaya and all that stuff?
You know? Right?
