Just tell the truth

A few months ago, when I heard Sheila Walsh speak in person at a Christian Women’s Conference I was struck to the core by her personal story. Two messages I took away from that talk – Let go (pending blog post) and Just tell the truth.

A specialist has told me before that I am ‘passive aggressive’ and I took it as a passing comment at the time. Another jargon term. Whatever that means. Who cares. Get on with it. Next.

Yesterday I was scrapping for writing material and I type the term into my best friend ‘Google’. The details felt like it was describing my relationship history and in fact a dramatic scenario that I created just a couple of days ago.

I tell you ‘nothing’ when you ask me what is wrong. I punish you by giving you the silent treatment, disappearing, sulking and not answering your calls. Until I forget what I was angry and upset about in the first place. Then I can go back to being my ‘always jolly cheerful understanding supportive’ self because that’s what I like to be perceived as.

Just tell the truth.

OK here goes.

Truth is I hate it when you assume I’m always just hanging around for you. I hate it when you treat me as if I’m disposable – coming and going as you wish. I hate it when you do what suits your lifestyle or schedule without regard for mine. I hate it when you do not mean or do what you say.

You are right, you can’t read my mind.

At times I can’t read mine either.

    I appreciate the thoughts shared here, but that photo… Did you really do that yourself? How long did it take? It’s wonderful!

      It’s beyond me for sure. It’s an exhibition at the Royal Festival Hall in London 🙂
