Thank goodness it’s Thursday! It’s been a week, especially since the green eyed monster showed up. I don’t want to talk about it, a mistake was made because of a disability, I’m more angry at the person who scammed the person, I forgive the mistake, we talked, and we’re moving past it. Love is about forgiveness and given that I am a rape survivor, I am tapping into my empathy. Been there, done that, and it wouldn’t be fair of me to judge. I hated being judged in my time of need and I refuse to do that to a loved one. This loved one needs my love now more than ever.
I’m really thankful for Chris, Christine, Nicole, Tina, and everyone who listened to me this week during the green eyed monster’s visit this week. Thank you for letting me vent, for riding the waves of feelings with me, and also giving me perspective. You were all life savers this week!
Today when I arrived home, I received this lovely post-card from Krista, one of my Writing.com friends. It made me verklempt and added a silver-lining to the week.
You know what sent the green eyed monster away? My friends helped with it, but tapping into my self-worth and my self-love sent her packing. I am enough. I am loved. I am liked. I am a beautiful person, inside and outside. I try my best and while I make mistakes, we all do, and we are all enough.
What are you thankful for today?

Hi, Jessica Marie!
I’m so sorry it was an upsetting week for you, dear friend. I am trying to read between the lines and understand specifically what happened, but it is enough to know that something did. The good news is that, with the help and support of genuine friends, you found a way to cope with it in a mature manner. Good for you! Every time you can control your state, take the high road and weather storms like this one, you get stronger and more capable. It might not seem like it when you are hurting and grappling with your emotions, but your inner strength is there and always sees you through in the end.
I wish you better times and improved spirits in the days ahead. Have a safe and hopefully a happy weekend, dear friend JM!
