Yesterday I heard, "You are not good enough. You do not follow the unspoken rules. You have disappointed me and I will take away something you love." Of course those were not the actual words used. But it is what I heard. I was not kind back.
I am working hard at putting myself in the other person's shoes. I actually understand why they feel the way they do. What I don't understand is why that means I get my hand slapped and punished. I supposed they don't see it as punishment, but that is how it feels.
I will get past it. At this point I don't want it back. But I am sad.
Thank you for listening.
