Drah-mah w/a capital D, ugh
All my efforts to hide from drama have failed this week. Although I think, for the time being at least, things are resolved, it was unpleasant and not the way I like to spend my time.
The good news is that the someone (I’ll bust them out enough to say they’re a very high profile SLebrity, part of the problem, frankly) who needed to hear some straight talking from a few folks DID listen, whether or not it will change things remains to be seen. I feel better for having done the hard thing and said my piece, clearly and directly. And for warning said person that should they start in again, they will not be dealt with gently.
I think it’s a common thing we tolerate much more abuse of ourselves than we will of others, I know that’s one of my “flavors” of less thank helpful (to me) behavior. So I reached my limit and that was that.
I’ve often said it, I’ll say it again. I can be the best friend you’ll ever have, but you really, really don’t want to make me mad. It takes an awful lot to do it, and trust me, if you do, you’ll know it.
