A friend posted a video on Facebook that was supposed to test your sanity- I only made it 40 seconds. I dare you to try.
I was backed into an emotional corner today and snapped. They say we have a flight or fight instinct, and I can stand a lot of crap but I am a fighter and take no prisoners when I start – someone is going down, and I’m out for blood.
I know what I said was the emotional truth but I wish I could have said it with more compassion.
I usually like to be more upbeat or comical but lately, I’ve been having a hard time. Recently my loved ones have been under attack and it hurts me to see them suffer. I start to feel useless because I can’t do anything to take away their problems. These are normal emotions but for those suffering from Bipolar Disorder, OCD and other physical problems it can quickly wear you down.
I’m not saying I need help or encouragement – although I will not deny I could use it – but that I understand.
We may not look sympathetic, or like we are paying attention because we are fighting our own internal battles of how to handle your suffering.
I have a new calling for the church – Compassionate Service Assistant. Today was my first time serving my calling – providing a luncheon for the family at the funeral. It ended up being most of the day for prep work, serving and clean up but we did have some free time, and I got to learn more about the sisters I now work with. As the day progressed, the ladies began to joke that I was still the newbie and needed to be corrupted.
They have no idea who they are dealing with! lol, But they did learn that I am OCD, as I keep trying to make everything match or even on the tables.
So I started doing some research on YouTube and ended up watching something completely different. Have you ever had that happen?
Explain to me why mermaids wear shells or coconuts. It can’t be comfortable. If it was me, I would be wearing a seaweed wrap or nothing. Let’s face it, it’s got to be more natural than something rough rubbing against my breast.
