I can remember going to the amusement park and riding the Cyclone over and over again, knowing that when it started to slowly coast uphill, I was going to scream my head off as it dropped into a fast and winding curve; leaving my heart in my mouth!
Human nature can produce the same kind of feeling, depending on who you’re dealing with, unfortunately. It can sometimes feel as if you are on an obstacle course. Look out for this! Watch out for that! Sometimes people can be so mixed up and screwed up in their thinking that they put others through unnecessary stuff!
It’s never easy handling your own insecurities and fears, but it’s never advisable to let them loose on others! Face up to whatever the problem is and hash it out within yourself.
When dealing with someone ends up leaving you with huge question marks, believe me, there’s something legitimate to wonder about. High maintenance is what I call it, because that’s exactly what it will require in order to deal with them.
I decided long ago that I was ‘Taking No Prisoners’! I left the ball and chains behind. Anything or anyone who presented stress, strife, confusion or the inability to act right, was not invited along for the journey.
Even the Holy Bible says, “Better to be in the wilderness (alone) than to tolerate a contentious and angry female (Proverbs 21:19)”! Why do we continue to take one another on roller coaster rides? Why won’t we call an ace an ace and a spade a spade? If we have a legitimate leg to stand on, we shouldn’t have any difficulty being straight with each other. Some of us are so out of touch with ourselves that we continue to play games while trying to hide what is in plain sight.
Well…at the end of the day, I can only work on me. I am responsible for being the best possible example I can be to all my ‘Sisters’ and ‘Sistah’ friends!
