Some times some ripples are a good thing
I learned something recently from Katy. She said a little while go that sometimes being a little off balance is a good thing. I don’t know whether to call it ripples or drama or what, but some times the emotional instability makes you realize what’s important to you. I recently had the worst day and the best day in a long time at the same time. That probably doesn’t make any sense and I always try to avoid drama as much as humanly possible. But this place can be very intense and it kind of runs on emotions or creates very strong emotions for some reason. They’re usually good, no great and I love that but things are also very unpredictable too.
At some point you’re going to step on someone’s toes or have someone else shake things, either accidentally or intentionally. It hurts and causes a shortage of tissues here sometimes but it also makes you realize what’s important to you and can ultimately make relationships stronger. Do NOT look for trouble or issues though or you will hurt things much more than you’ll help them. And I also personally avoid people that seem to intentionally cause drama. (you make up your own mind about that, I won’t tell you to avoid anyone) This place is enough of a soap opera anyone going out of their way to cause waves isn’t fun to be around. But it’s also the waves that teach you what counts and shows you who your friends are.
So if (or when) you do have issues try to look at their intentions not just how it looked from your point of view and look for the silver lining. Oh and for a bonus tip, answer drama with love. It’s always better than responding to the issue. Here’s a note I used other day in response to an angry message. I didn’t answer her anger because that would only make things escalate. In this case the hostility was intentional so this didn’t really solve it, but at least I felt like I wasn’t just responding but trying to solve it and doing the right thing. (I think it was 1023 characters)
A faint glow appears in the room as a fairy floats through the open window landing softly in front of the large sleeping figure. Leaning down and kissing you softly on the cheek as a chime dings somewhere in the distance. She smiles watching you sleep, your chest steadily rising and falling slowly. She closes her eyes and clasps her hands whispering silent prayers for the dark figure in front of her and the girl behind it. A tear slowly forms slipping down her cheek, before being brushed aside with a finger. It turns to sparkles in her hand which she sprinkles on the bed before she turns suddenly leaping silently across the room and sailing effortlessly back through the window floating into the night sky with a soft giggle. No amount of back and forth words can solve or fix some things. You were and are a wonderful person no matter what and that’s all that matters now. You wake feeling refreshed and content with the sweetest dreams still fading, the whole world seems somehow just a tiny be happier.
