What Have You Done For Me Lately?
I'm ready to move this person into the "acquaintance" column. I've looked back at the relationship over the years and there are not a lot of entries into the asset column. This is a relationship that's definitely in the red for me. It doesn't mean that I won't be friendly, etc - it just means that I am through "doing". If it's for "fun and for free" then that's fine - I just need to set that boundary for myself. Detachment without drama. No need to announce my new rules - just start enforcing them. It feels good to get some clarity as the whole deal was causing me some real anxiety (Hello - my name is Roxie and I'm a people-pleaser).
Weekend was productive - got in a great ride on Saturday and lots of work around the house over the rest of the weekend. I decided to skip the cookie party and went to see Pl@ying For K33ps" - horribly bad movie - with Marti when she asked. It was good choice for me - it was showing at one of those dinner and a movie places, but I opted to eat at home before going - again, a good choice for me. I wasn't even tempted by the popcorn, which is a treat I normally allow myself when in the theatre.
Cammy 's graphic said about the phone. I've also heard it said "Oh my goodness - I've got a flat tire. Let me just get out and slash the other three". Same deal.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Get as good as you give.
