Sometimes a bump in the night….


“Witch”  Acrylic  on canvas 9×12 inches

It is amazing how surprising it always is to me to discover that someone I know well wishes me harm.  This has happened before with this same person, and I am always surprised at the depth of another’s misguided thoughts and potentially damaging actions.  I know this person very well and although I cannot say I trust this person, I can say I thought benign coexistence was a possibility.  However, apparently this is not ever going to be possible.  She has stolen from me, she has tried to tarnish my reputation, not only as a human being, but as a member of my family and friends.  I will never understand the motivation that drives this kind of person – I try to keep in mind that it is a sad thing for her own soul, but I also have quick hot bursts of anger that threaten to bloom into some kind of retaliation, which I realize is a choice each of us has to make and I have always chosen not to retaliate, not to allow bitterness or anger to become my own path, but it takes strength of conviction and often courage.  I am happy in my life and I refuse to be denigrated by her actions.  Yes?

  1. I’m glad you are keeping your center with this person. No good would come from lowering yourself to her level. I hope you can just separate from that relationship. I have been there too, never can understand the thought process with these type people. Hope you are doing okay.

  2. Thanks Jan,
    I am always caught off-guard and when I least expect it – I have remained separate for the last 2 years or so – this is part of the reason I would like to move away from here!

Tell me about it...
