~We All Have Choices~

Lenox, Georgia
May 13, 2017 6:33am CST
Good morning everyone! I hope your having a wonderful morning so far. I just woke up a few minutes ago and my heart is feeling heavy. I made the stupid decision to have a conversation I never wanted to have to begin with. I knew better but I did it anyway. Yes it was on Mylot and I will never make that choice again. When I feel stupid the conversation has gone way too far. My point is we all have choices here, I made the wrong one yesterday and 100% wish I could take it back. I hate confrontation, debates, arguments, etc. I usually avoid them like the plague. And I will again from now on. It came out of nowhere-I did not even go into a religious discussion-never do. Gosh I feel so stupid but I will not let any situation steal my joy. I need to pray about this and realize that I am me and that is okay. More than anything I'm hurt. Yes that's all it takes to hurt me. If that's stupid to you then so be it but this is me and how I always have been. I'm not sure if I will be here today or not. I might be here on and off. I'm just not sure right now. To all of my friends I hope you have a wonderful day and remember you always have choices. =)

I feel so bad for you that you have a heavy heart today. But you are a strong woman and I am sure that you will find a way to deal with you.

@marlina Thank you. I will be okay. I feel better after writing this and I am ready to move forward. I wish I was stronger than I am, but God made me the way He wanted me. I will work on becoming more strong emotion wise though.

You see. Tomorrow, Mother's Day. You, being a mother (even if not the mine), still deserve sincere wishes

I'm sure you didn't say anything too terrible. Just get back in the saddle and don't be upset. We all slip once in awhile.

@RubyHawk No nothing terrible but I hate confrontation and it kind of turned into that-or at least I felt it did. I hate when people are mad at me and I felt like that kind of happened too. =(

@LovingMyBabies I'm sorry but just trying to forget it. I don't like confrontation either.

@RubyHawk You are right. No one is perfect and all make mistakes here and there. As long as we learn through the issue at hand.

I can totally sympathize. I have had something on my mind for a couple of weeks that just had me dragging, but it is not on myLot. I still think I know how that down feeling and disappointment feels.

@Gardengerty Thank you for listening and understanding. I appreciate it so much. I had to get this written here or it would have been hurting me forever. This is my way of letting go and moving forward. I'm sorry for whatever your going through and I truly hope things get better. Until they do here's a hug.

@LovingMyBabies I feel like I have moved past it, and I also know that stress made everything seem so much worse. I talked a lot with hubby about it, he is a good listener.Thank you for the hugs.

I have learned to walk away more than not but sometimes you just have to speak up. Things will work out fine.

Hope you feel better now after posting what was or still is in your mind. Yes, we all always have choices, sometimes it is a smart one, sometimes it is not so smart one...but whatever it is, I'm sure we will learn from our choices. Hope to see you back soon..

When we are in a community of so many people who have a wide variety of opinions, it is common to have to deal with certain things that may hurt us. I, myself, really have to work at avoiding discussions and responses that are unsettling to me. I sure do skip a lot of posts and responses here to avoid any hurt feelings.

@Corbin5 Yes absolutely. I just usually avoid things that might make someone annoyed with me. This time I didn't expect what happened but I think the person is mad at me now... =( I just hate that.

@LovingMyBabies You and I will choose peace over power. And in everyone's life, someone will be upset with us a some point in our lives, and all we can do is let time pass and perhaps the anger will diminish.

Wow, I know how you feel as I have been there before too. I think many people that are here can say the same thing. My favorite saying for things like this is "this too shall pass".

I think debates is fine since we all are entitled to our own opinions and thoughts. But sometimes it can lead to being upset if the point isn't getting acrossed mutually. Even if I don't agree I can try to learn to see their view but not necessarily accept it just okay and moving on! I hope you feel better - it's good to vent rather than keep it inside. Hope you have a nice day'

@infatuatedbby Yeah we are entitled to our own opinions but when people end up getting mad over it or upset it's just not worth it. I regret ever responding. Thanks, I am feeling better about it now.

It is usually good in my opinion to have fairly neutral conversations on myLot. because talking about things near and dear to your heart will usually bring you pain..there are all types of people in the world. Sorry you had that situation.

@snowy22315 Yeah I usually stay away from all religious and political discussions for that reason. This topic wasn't one of those so I didn't think anything of it when I commented. Phew-I was wrong! I should have just shut my mouth and never responded.

I understand how you feel. One thing I express myself a little bit on here is politics, but after I have expressed it and someone on here says the exact opposite of what I think, I wont answer anymore, because it would be a fruitless back and forth. Their political opinions are theirs, I can't change it. My political opinions are mine and they wont change what I think.

@Leapea2417 Thank you. Yeah I don't respond on politics or religious discussions-too heated for me! But this discussion wasn't one of those so I thought it was safe to respond in my honest opinion. I was wrong!!
