NOTE TO SELF

NOT THAT IT IS THE LEAST OF MY CURRENT CROP OF ISSUES

But I don't want to let this slide by me. It may come up again, so if it does, it will be purposeful.

The episode that I endured recently at home, took so much out of me ... not only because it is yet another financial set back, but because it pushed the limits of my self control. My 'tired' isn't like the 'tired' everyone throws around in conversation. When I get 'tired' of something, it means that 'right now I don't want to put up with something'. Had I known how to get where my step Mother lived that day ...

As it is, my nephew STILL hasn't come all the way clean. What can you do in the face of something like that? At any rate, I have to make sure that I have enough for the rest of the world.


When it comes to him 'getting his', I know that is something that isn't left up to me. But if it isn't supposed to be part of my purpose, then why does 'payback' taste so good?

Hmm ... maybe that is it. Most of the things that taste good, aren't necessarily good for us. Or it takes even more work to overcome. Okay. I promise to just TALK to him. It will be a straight away converstation. His thinking that he has 'gotten over' is not what he should take away from this experience.

I definitely think you should sit him down for a heart to heart. If for nothing else to try to get through to him, there are consequences for your actions. (Hugs)Indigo

I like what Ken said, Mark;I know you'll find the right words to talk to him. It is really for his own good that someone does talk to him and hold him accountable. if he continues this type of behavior, who knows where he'll go down the road.............

Yes, I don't think I'd let this one go by. There needs to be some discussion.
