The One With Some Thoughts

It's interesing how just a comment from a family member, a friend or a stranger can throw you into a spin. Just a comment, hurtful, but just a comment. This happened to me recently and it's making me question my parenting, my children's influence on others, & mostly my relationship with that person.

I'm confused as to how to continue on with the friendship or if I just need to step back for a while and let the person guide where we're going.

It is interesting, tho... why do we let other people's thoughts influence us so much? Perhaps a person with more confidence would be able to over look hurtful comments.

It is weird how others can have such a profound effect on our feelings. I was given the bird the other day by some in a hurry angry driver and I stewed about it all day. Wondering if I could have done something to avoid it, etc.... Stupid, I know, but just an example of what you are talking about. It's so much more intense when the hurt comes from someone we consider a friend. ((Becca))
