ONE OF MY WEAKNESSES WAS…

The ability not to confront issues when I am hurt.

The truth is, I have a high threshold for drama or bullshit.

My usual posture is to turn it into a joke. Or create excuses for the other person.

I can ignore the pain for years for love sake.

But deep down a part of me is hurt.

A piercing emotional sore.

Now I communicate my thoughts.

I speak up assertively.

When I do, the other party may gaslight. Act defensively. Or take responsibility.

But whatever it is,

I have learnt never to be afraid of hard and painful conversations.

I have also trained my soul to listen and take responsibility in case I am the culprit.

Love experiences seasons and we must train our essence to embrace it.
