My family gets frustrated when I take the words of a stranger to heart. It happens here once in awhile. Some people are just mean. Most people are reasonable and you can come to a reasonable decision. But there are those who just have to let you know that you will never be good enough and they don’t appreciate anything you will ever do.
They have made me listen to this song, everyday since the last backhanded compliment. They turn it up loud enough to wake the dead.
Today I finally begged them to stop. I get it.
I am done with it. I don’t care. I refuse to let mean people dictate my actions. I am in control of my reactions.
It’s a new beginning.
