|Sometimes you just have to brave what life throws at you!|
Have you ever had one of those moments when you greet someone you like but haven't seen for awhile and they totally lose their cool? I felt just like this telephone pole today as one of my acquaintances started listing their woes and would not quit!
Anger poured out with words, expressions, and movement. I don't believe I ever heard what was really bothering the person to cause the ruckus, but somehow I became the sounding board until it resulted in a turning away and hastily rushing away. Not me. I was as glued to the ground as this phone pole. Obviously, it was NOT the time to say "Hi."
|Good Heavens, I was thunderstruck!|
Disbelief held me spellbound for a moment or two as the acquaintance disappeared from view. The angry barbs stuck to me like the sagebrush on the pole. I've spent the better part of today trying to shake them off, to no avail.
The mantras for standing against buffeting winds keep running through my mind. Think good thoughts, love thy neighbor, judge not.
I'm keeping my chin up and standing tall. I said prayers for a release from anxiety and turmoil. Tomorrow is another day. I hope they find it to be a better one.
How do you or would you handle this situation?
