How do you feel when you complain? Do you try not to? I'd like to know why you hold back, if you do.
This question arose because, on my 44th birthday, I woke up to find my vehicle had been ransacked! No lie, I barely cared. I shared this fact with a few people, making light of it. I know, it's horrible & I felt violated. It was just important to note that 1. They didn't break my windows 🤷🏾♀️ 2. They didn't steal my bus passes 👍🏽 3. My bullet was still in it's pouch 🙏🏾
For some, especially if I'm not certain where they stand anymore, I didn't even answer the phone or texts. I simply responded “thanks” to “Happy Birthday” texts, and went about my business. Never giving another thought about if them reaching out was intentional, or automatic, because I don't hear from them at all.
The break in did put me in a funk, and it wasn't something I shared with everyone.
Just like good news, it also matters who I share my bad news with. Everyone just isn't going to celebrate you, so I share with those I know who will. Also, some people wait in the background to delight in your demise and I refuse to put mine on a silver platter. Feast on my back demon, my heart & my hurt is not for your viewing pleasure. Period
