It happened on Thursday this week. This lady who usually has something negative to say to me almost everytime she sees me, comes up to me and touches my mid-section and says to me,"your tummy is big." Then she proceeds to ask me whether I had a C section and when I nodded yes she says along with hand gestures," you are so big and tall."
I can't tell you what her words did to me...it set off this switch in my head...I was totally affected by her words...my daughter did something I didn't like and I ended up yelling at her for 20 mins or so...and it continued the following day when she did something I didn't care for. The mean lady in me just showed up and took control. Thursday night I stuffed my face. Friday I got back on track.
She is from the Philippines and I don't even know her name. She is somebody I run into while I am waiting to pick my daughter up at school. Maybe next time I should tell her how I have heard the 'Pilipinas' eat dogs and cats! We know they eat worms if you have watched Bizzare foods on the Travel channel. I can think of so many mean things to say to her but is that what I want to be, pay kind for kind?! Forgive 70 times 7 according to the Bible...is so hard to do!
I don't want words to affect me BUT it does!
