Making adjustments...

Yesterday I danced with a bully. I let her sway me to do something I didn't think was right. My action didn't really hurt anyone but it was unfair to some other people. I was distracted, getting ready to head out the door with three kids, sorting through some items for a flea market sale this weekend, needing to go by the bank and other errands before landing at the park, planning a camping trip, and dealing with a lot of other people's emotions and feelings that were supposedly hurt so it was kind of a "heat of the moment" moment. I was hoping that by doing what was asked, I'd not be bothered again. In the back of my mind was the thought that a snowball might be in the making but thankfully it wasn't. Her foot did not get caught in my door, there is no entrance gained. And, it won't happen again.

Hi Molly, I hope today is a new day and the bully has gone away. Moving forward seems like a good thing to do.
I haven't been back for a few days and I wondered if the door has made any progress. Thinking of you today. Have a happy day.

Hugs...Jeanne

How cryptic! I hope that the snowball wasn't too big?

I just hate stuff like this, it shakes you up a bit. Sorry to hear that you've had a bit of a scuffle.
We had an experience with a "parent" bully in July. It was very upsetting. The child was a bully too, I wonder where he learned it from?!

A lesson learned.
