During my life I have been faced with numerous stresses, anxiety and depression. At 68 years of age I am still learning to deal with it and have been coping well . I had an upset today which I will share with you.
A few months ago I became friends with a couple on Face Book who I will refer to as Liz and Don. Don is the father my granddaughters boyfriend. I have never met Liz and Don, they live in another country.
Today Liz posted for the world to see that she wasnt feeling well. Others had responded by saying things like ‘enjoy being looked after by your man, enjoy it while it lasts’ . I wrote ‘I hope you get well real soon Liz enjoy being pampered by Don …..I then added three laughing faces .
Live , Love and Laugh is my policy in life.
unfortunately I offended Liz. She sent me a private message asking why I put three laughing faces and what had I heard about Don to do something like that. Liz went on to say that Don is a lovely kind caring man.
I responded by saying that I wasn’t trying to offend and in fact was being kind to her, plus had never heard anything wrong about Don. I told her that I considered the laughing faces to be happy faces.
Liz went on to post a statement about humiliating negative people and that they should be removed.
I started stressing and becoming anxious and had some tears.
I unfriended the couple from my Face Book contacts. There may have been a better way of dealing with it. I gave myself a few hours to think about it before I unfriended the couple.
I had to RELEASE THE EMOTIONAL STRESS.
