The 100 Day Reality Challenge

Someone said something to me today that was so hurtful. It came out of left field. I tried to pretend like it did not hurt, but it felt like a knife was shoved into my heart and twisted. I totally did not see it coming. It was intentional and planned. I tried my best to just finish the telephone conversation and I did with tears streaming down my cheeks. I managed to excuse myself off of the phone just before my voice cracked.

I wish sometimes that I could just cut this person out of my life but I can't because it was my mother. She has gotten older and these vicious attacks are not as frequent but she still has the ability to spew venom.
This was just sad.

I understand. I have experienced this as well. From what I have determined so far, it is best that we love the whole person the best we can. We practice tolerance, love, forgiveness thus adding to our enlightenment. This attracts good things to us. Let the hurt go and embrace the good.

What are your expectations about your mom, and your relationship with her?
Look at these and see if there are not areas in which you can shift on your end.
Everyone has a "role" in a family. When you line up your role to one which best represents who you really are, you start attracting people to compliment you in a positive way.
Right now you and your mother are caught in this role. Change it on your end and watch it change.
If I can be of help, please let me know

Love is contagious,

Wow Dear. I am glad I came by. Not because I have the answer for you but because I know the thoughts that come with all that noise. You see I know that the closer I get to achieving the serenity and peace and love I sooo desire in "my little world" the more the"Boss of Negativity" will work through others, including the people I need and trust the most, that are NOT as strong as I WISH they were. Find your inner presence and take care of your SELF. You are a good person and deserve to be loved.oxox

Glad I stopped by. I think we've all had moments like these. My mom is in denial about the good things in my life, and in denial about just about everything good on this planet! Imagine having such a deficiency! Not sure what its like to be a mom, but I try to love mine for other reasons than how positive she is. Cuz my mom isn't positive about anything!! I totally relate!

I want to say a whole bunch of stuff. But I can't. Because it's your life. Thanks for sharing. Please keep your intentions clear. The clearer they are, the more you can know yourself and where you are going. I suppose what I hope from you, here I go, is that your mother's behavior will not be acceptable to the "future you," the YOU that you create. I intention a world in which a Qmaylee can be an active and opinionated part of this world, just as much as her mother. In business, in relationships, in daily dealings, life is a bit risky. That's all I'm willing to say at this point. Many blessing to you and may Goodness descend upon you at this time of hurt. Courage!

I totally understand. My mom is the same way. Sometimes I think the most terrible thoughts about her. However, when ppl put you down, it's mostly out of insecurity. Keep your distance and don't even bother arguing it. I always tell my mom "ok". Short and sweet and I will never change her thoughts. Just know it isn't true.
