The last day of the Happy You in 22 Challenge with massive thanks to fab hosts Lori Sebert Studios, Snippets of Whimsy, and Tracy Verdugo!
SO much fun! I think I only missed 2 prompts this round, phew!
Last theme is Impassioned & engaging.
I’ve been thinking lots about being no contact with the f*mily of origin mostly because the 6 year anniversary, or Freedom Day as I call it, is coming up next week.
(Bottle of bubbly chilling as we speak).
The day they called me a bitch, full of shit, & my husband a “creep”, & why?
Because I exposed some really dirty shit they pulled & they *hated* that I uncovered their bad behaviour.
Instead of apologizing or owning up to it, they disinherited me.
I could go on about their cruel deeds but I don’t want to give them any further energy or thought.
At 6 years out I finally feel like I am done. I am happier than I ever have been ever before.
I understand myself & why I do things the way I do.
I’m working on changing the leftover stuff I need to change for *me*.
Whatever they say about me now is not my problem, & anyone who still believes them without asking me, is not my friend.
I can finally just be me. Without worrying about being judged, made fun of, embarrassed, or targeted, for just being myself.
And to celebrate I ordered myself a new pair of Doc boots (Church Vintage Monkey boots, sooo funky!) because I sadly gave away (I knnnnoooow) my last pair when a f*mily member told me they were “ugly” & “made me look like a man”.
Not that being a man is bad, but I’m not one so it was meant to hurt. And it did.
Yep. And they wonder why I left.
Tip of the iceberg, man.
So here’s to being you! And me, & us, & we & they & them!
You’re amazing, brilliant, beautiful & if nobody has ever told you that, trust me. You are. Keep on being you. The rest can fuck all the way off, imho.
