Day 3: Finding Power

Published April 16, 2014 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

This morning I have been thinking about an incident that happened a few weeks ago, and I am wondering if I maybe over reacted.  You see, Roger and I were going to a benefit for a friend that lost his daughter to heart disease, and another couple was supposed to meet us there.  We hadn’t seen this couple in a long time, so we were all looking forward to getting together to catch up and support a great cause, or so I thought.

This couple didn’t show up.  It wouldn’t have been a big deal but this wasn’t the first time this has happened, heck it wasn’t even the second or third time this has happened.  There have been several times we have made plans to get together, only to be left standing without even so much as a message as to why.  I have been friends with this girl since high school but unfortunately this really hurt my feelings.

I suppose I was feeling a little disregarded.  I felt as though we didn’t even matter enough to warrant a Facebook message.  Did I over react?  Or could it be that this friendship just didn’t matter as much to them as it did to us?  Anyway, this has been weighing heavily on my mind lately.  I am not one to hold a grudge.

I am very forgiving and I want to be in this case as well, however I can be forgiving without setting myself up for further hurt.  I don’t want to set myself up again or invest in a relationship that is only one-sided.  It is not as though I have been carrying around hostility towards them or anything.  It is what it is, I suppose.  I still haven’t heard from them, so I guess there is nothing left for me to do anyway, except to move forward.

Oh well, this is why I love my blog, it is a perfect place to get these things off my mind.

On a lighter note, this mornings meditation was called Finding Power and the centering thought is “My power and strength are within”.  As usual it was a powerful twenty minutes.  I intend on considering the centering thought throughout the day.  I am going to breathe consciously and allow my presence to keep me grounded.  I am going to relax and enjoy each and every minute of the day.

With much love

Michele ♥

  • Michele, I’m very glad you found peace in your morning meditation and I can definitely understand your frustrations with being stood up. Sorry to hear it! Have a beautiful day! XOXO!

  • If they are real friends overlook it and do not take it to heart. They have their own agenda. If not be patient and realize they will continue the same pathways. Some people are considerate and some just do not have social skills. Then some are abusive and cruel. But it is not a reflection on you. It is a reflection on them.

    • Thank you Barry! 🙂 Sometimes I slip back into those old conditioned thought patterns. I am aware that it was my ego that was hurt. I guess I feel a little bad for being hurt in the first place. hahaha…. And so goes learning to live consciously.

  • Nope … I don’t think you overreacted. I think you are feeling pretty much how most folks would feel…If they even would have kept trying with friend. I think I would say something to her about it. The worst that can happen is she will tell you what you already know … the relationship is kinda shot.
