One of the elements of love for me is my unconditional need to protect my mate. This is not limited to scratching out eyes or kicking shins when necessary.
I am currently dealing with feelings of protectiveness over "something" another person intentionally or unintentionally neglected to do towards my mate. Upon discussion with a wiser person than myself I have determined that to bring it to this persons attention would not serve any purpose and might only piss them off which would cause bigger problems.
So it is here I am going to get it off my chest. The funny thing is this "something" totally rolled off my mates back with a laugh. But I on the other hand am harboring feelings of anger and unrest. So this is my attempt to write it out and let it go.
My step-dad would tell me two things right now.
1. do not and he would repeat DO NOT stoop to "their" level.
2. 10 years from now this will not make a damn bit of difference.
I miss you Ray!
P.S. I was really listening all those years even though my lip was dragging on the ground in a pout most of that time. And guess what? My face didn't freeze that way! :-)~
