Today someone did something by which I was hurt. In sifting through that hurt I realised that if it has been someone else, I would have felt differently.
I was reminded, yet again, of the subjective nature of reality, and how I am responsible for my responses (pardon the alliterative pun which according to some is literary suicide). In the moment, I responded with care (I believe), while faced with their denial and criticism. And like all feelings, the hurt evaporated: this time, very quickly.
Daily lesson Number 1 for Mwa: pick my confidantes more carefully – don’t share intimate and beautiful things with people that I cannot trust to hold them as intimately and beautifully as I do. Daily lesson Number 2 for Mwa: trust my intuition. Daily lesson Number 3 for Mwa: move on. The past exists only in my head, and the lesson is in the movement of the feelings. Daily lesson number 4 for Mwa: life is too short to stay in the ugly.
Overall learning for the day: be who I am. Gee, ya think?
