The Cheerleader Togs

Sunday, May 19, 2019

Putting the cheerleader outfit to the back of my closet for work wear. I really dislike work drama. I was kind of keeping to myself at work, tired of these issues. But then I felt like I was being rude and cold so I was more friendly. I was getting my smile mimicked back at me in a mocking way from a younger coworker, which I didn’t much like. So I stopped catching her eye and smiling at her in the hallway.

Now she seems to have taken offense by that or something else and is giving me nasty looks. It got to me. I’m being polite and not engaging on her level. I’m really getting too old for this nonsense. Why do they always find me? It upset me to the point where I was obsessing over it, which made me feel worse. I am like a big puppy. I’m warm and caring (and way too sensitive). I like people and care about them. People chat with me when I am out in stores. I had a nice conversation yesterday in Trader Joe with a man about grilling asparagus! LOL. It’s the specific cases that weigh me down.

So yesterday I felt flattened by this ridiculousness. And oh so allergy-ridden. Today I got up and said to myself:TAKE CHARGE, WOMAN! If this person wants to behave like her 5-year old son, well, let her. And that’s the way I am going to view her, as a pouting, overtired child. Step around the temper tantrum. I guess you can be too nice, and I have proven this to myself many times. When will I learn?

Just going to consider and take care of what is IMPORTANT and ESSENTIAL in my world. ME!

    Yay, you!

    I'm like you - sensitive and just liking people and friendly. Those buttfaces find us because we're generally cheerful, I think. Mean and small people get something out of bringing others down, mocking folks, creating personal drama. Maybe it's a small amount of power for those who feel powerless? Maybe they're hurt or afraid?

    What I do know is that it's not about you. And yay for you being the adult and stepping around it. You have your priorities right and I wish you, husband and wacky cat a wonderful week!
