So, … I Should’ve Said Something

Trying to find words to express my concerns but not sure there’s anything to say. You tell yourself you heard wrong. Or it wasn’t meant the way you took it. You ask B if it bothered him. A little I guess is all he will say. But you know this man and you see his pain. Matching your own.

Seeing your fragile kid take it because she believes she’s not worth anything is like a sucker punch to the gut. She deserves better. We all do.

For some reason many think it’s okay to make fun of fat people. It’s not. Especially by the ones who are supposed to love you the most.

A friend and I were just discussing this very topic. When someone made a comment about how much weight her child had gained, she went off. She told me she screamed. “Well at least my daughter isn’t a <fill the the blank> who lets any guy she meets f her up the @!@!&.”

She is more momma bear than me. I should’ve said something. Yet as good as that probably felt, I can’t go around screaming obscenities.

Maybe if the chance presents itself I can attempt to educate. I’m back to I heard it wrong and/or he didn’t mean it that way. And until then I pray she’ll be okay.

As always more to come.

So, … Safety First

B: You’re not putting your seat belt on again?

Me: I’m ok in the back.

B: Not really but you’re gonna do what you want.

Me: Huh?

Thinking 🤔 I don’t know what I want. Do I want to live on the edge? Wing it? Seat of my pants it? Story of my life.

Lulu: Oh wow. There’s a wreck.

B: Sure enough. Looks like we just missed it. We’ll detour around it to the highway.

Me: click

As always, more to come.

So many quotes to choose from that I had a hard time picking.  That’s a theme with me lately.  “This indecision’s bugging me … If you don’t want me, set me free … Exactly whom I’m supposed to be …Don’t you know which clothes even fit me?” Bonus points of the virtual variety for naming that tune.  Any Who, without further ado, here’s my #1linerWeds.

There’s more to the quote but I can’t find the podcast. I’ve listened to so many over the past few days. Lots of learning and self reflection going on around here.
