Is it possible that there is no complaining, blaming, wrong or right? These thoughts have been in my head all morning. I’m also wondering why precious little God-daughter wouldn’t get ready for school, so I can also get ready for work.
I did all the motherly tricks to get her dressed but she just wouldn’t budge. She was beginning to get on my nerves and I tried to make her understand that yet she just wouldn’t give in.
To her, she was exercising her right and believed her not bulging was the right thing and not the wrong thing. Is it her ego? Is she saying something that I didn’t understand? A wise man once said, “there’s no right, no wrong, just people’s ego”.
When my daughter wouldn’t get ready for school, it got me thinking. Was it her ego playing out? Isn’t she still young for that? Is anyone too young to display egoistic tendencies?
She tried expressing herself but I couldn’t make anything out of anything she was saying. Her mum came to the rescue and told me that it’s either I let her be and have peace or I trouble her and see her drama. Bottom line is she didn’t go to school today. Children right?
I definitely want my peace and her peace and there is no one who doesn’t need peace, but there is always something else in us that quietly wants the drama. I needed peace from my little girl and at the same time loved the drama. It was a good drama I must say because I learned gibberish today 😊.
At some point in our lives, we need a little drama. We may not feel it now. We may have to wait for a situation or even the tiniest thought to trigger a reaction in us. For instance; someone blaming you for something you didn’t do, not regarding you not your efforts, constantly reprimanding you for something you did wrong or didn’t do.
You may have decided to be at your best behavior for the day and use your time wisely, but the truth of the matter is, at that point in time you will be forced to react and defend yourself. The peace you so much craved for will be exchanged for a little drama.
Can you relate to this? Because I can! I can feel the enormous surge of heat moving through my body right now as I write. The fear of being consumed by anger lingers.
Whatever way we choose to look at this, wanting a little peace or a little drama is part of life. It can not always be rosy because we want it to. We can not always be in control of what happens to us but we can be in control of what happens in us.
When you find yourself wanting peace but getting more of the opposite, don’t explode, take deep breaths, say, ” it’s all good. It’s not worth it”, and see the humor in the situation.
Love and Peace
