Boy did I learn a lesson today! I woke up to two situations (family and where I live) and I found myself getting sensitive and worried about both situations. In one situation I felt my family was ganging up on me to do a certain thing and where I live, I felt there was an expectation, but after communicating, I found out the truth. Nothing that I was thinking was true.
This is why communication is so important. When left up to our own thoughts we can end up believing things that are not even true. There is no way you can draw conclusions WITHOUT communicating with people. No way.
Where the family was concerned, I spoke to my uncle, my sister and my brother and it was clear that they not only understood, but they supported my position. It was actually only one family member who was feeling I should do something that I know I am not supposed to do.
Then with the lady, I am residing with, she expressed that she is grateful to have me with her at this time. My mind was beginning to tell me otherwise.
I am a communicator, so I am so glad, I was able to talk about the situation and bring remedy. If I had not done that, I would be feeling some kind of way right now.
Are you being overly sensitive about something? If you are, communication is the key! Talk it out!
