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.
