When someone hurts my feelings or does something mean to me, I get upset. I'll admit it. I am quick to get angry but I also am quick to forgive. I don't hold grudges. I may pout or ignore you for an hour or two, but then I am over it.
However, if you mess with my main amigos, my top three, my sweet family, I will scissorkick you in the back of the head. (Okay, I won't really scissorkick you. But I will be thinking about it.)
Who are my top three you ask? Well, let me tell you.
- My kids.
- My hubby
- My mom
I know it is not healthy to hold a grudge. I know it hurts me more than the other person. I'll admit I need to work on letting it go. It's really difficult for me and I'm trying.
But see, here is the thing. I love these people with all of my heart, all of my being. If you are hurtful to one of these people, it is like you are stomping on my heart. Literally jumping up and down on the old ticker. (Just picture it. Someone jumping up and down on your chest. It would be painful, no?)
Now, I am not talking about unitentional slights, accidentally popping someone in the nose or even "your mama" jokes. (I know the "Your mama is so fat.." jokes. But in my mama's case she is skinny. So you would have to say something like "Your mama is so skinny she runs around in the shower just to get wet." Ha! That's a good one. Wait, I am really going off topic here...) I am talking about intentional hurt, actively trying to physically or emotionally hurt one of these people.
So, the next time, you decide to be mean to my hubby, my kids or my mama, just know that I am going to come at you like a spider monkey. You brought this on yourself. It's on like Donkey Kong!
