Arguments happen. Hate it. People disagree. Eh, fact of life. Whatever the issue that may lay on the table, it usually gets resolved and everyone moves on. Tea, anyone? But, not for some people. So, no to the tea then? There are some people who like the drama and chaos of fighting. Not me, I shut down. Unless I blow my fuse. Then, you’re dead to me. And THEN, I shut back down. *Insert cheesy grin here.
If things are going too good, there are people who will CREATE something to fight over. You hate waffles now? Or engage in actions that they, knowingly, will start WWIII. Ok, no to the waffles then. Got it. You can pretty much bet, if you argue with me, and I feel you are just trying to control the subject? with manipulation? Or that only you’re opinion, that you’re stating as fact, is the only right answer? You can also bet that I will likely walk away from you…. mid-sentence. Or just go to the kitchen and find something other to make than waffles. I just don’t have time for that bat-shit crazy. And, I most definitely don’t need that toxic energy attaching to my energy. Where’s a cloud and a pogo stick when you need them?
If I love you, then I will do what I think is best for me -and you. Uh, hi, caller? Yeah, I’m reporting a 5150. Uh, yeah, well, he’s wearing a kimono and has taken up stilts-stunting? Oh, and he’s not wearing anything underneath the kimono. And it’s a mini-mono. Ok, a bit extreme, maybe. But, sometimes you gotta save somebody from themself. Seriously though, I would absolutely just back away and let your Ego Warship set sail, until you’ve come to the realization that it was all docked at the harbor, by anchor. And was a complete waste of time and energy, when LOVE, should have been the underlying motivation. I’m motivated by cake. Too bad, there wasn’t any cake around during an argument. I’m definitely motivated by cake. Most arguments come from the place of the psyche. You’re a psychologist now? No. But, self-image and how we see ourselves, when challenged, is what causes contention. Keeping glitter around usually helps ease the tension too. If you remove the narcissism, you’ll find yourself FAR LESS angry, and hostile toward anyone. Open to opposing ideas. Like waffles with edible glitter in them! Receptive to those with a different experience. I had edible confetti in them before, but prefer the glitter. I could care less when I’m wrong; But, I won’t be disrespected. They taste like shiny pop rocks. My opinions and experiences are my own and just as valid as the next homosapien. No, that’s not a monkey. Although, I love monkeys. They’re fuzzy. And like to hug.
