‘And by email’ is for me the equivalent of ‘and another thing’. I write these words onto a post it note everyday for letters at work and I have been thinking about making this into a column. Its the place where I can rant and question things.
So, just as everything seemed to be ticking along quite well, a friend made a comment about something she thought I had said and ever since then I have been in a bad place. Although I maintain that I haven’t said anything of the sort, I still racked my brain to think whether I did. I consulted friends who are honest enough to tell me of my character traits and I sort guidance from Twitter. Oh, the joys of Twitter – send a question out and someone will often help you.
All say the same thing, that if someone chooses to believe something then that is up to them. That I cannot change anyone elses thoughts on something. And I know that this is true but I hate the thought of someone close to me not liking me. Hate it. Hate it.
But I hate that I feel the need for approval too. I know that some of my close friends would just let it ride. “So what” they would say, but for me I just don’t seem to be able to do it.
What do you do? Can you just ride it out and wait for things to get better (if they get better)? Any thoughts on what I should do or think?
