A series of observations
Friday, January 17, 2020
My husband informed me at breakfast that his friend in California sent him another email. There had been some back and forth about sharing personal information, the pluses and minuses of sharing problems, disappointments, and the like. His friend prefers to not plunge into "the depths". I mentioned that his friend must value his friendship to continue communicating. Which made DH stop and think. I said that we sometimes have to accept people for who they are and respect where they are coming from. And realize that we even though we are now officially a couple of crabby older people, we could try not to be so negative.
I am feeling more comfortable at work. I've minimized contact with some of the people I work with, and they are leaving me alone now. I'm no longer a "puppy" waiting to jump on everyone and chat them up. I have boundaries, finally. I feel no obligation to go out of my way for anyone just because their work cubicles are near mine.
I'm free to find and enjoy my own "sunny shpots". Hope I can hang onto this.
