This happens in life . . you want to help someone, you open yourself up to try to help them, and you find that you can’t trust them. Then you have to decide what to do next.
I’m still me. Yep, finding out that my words in a private conversation were twisted and spread around to others did hurt. But, I’m still me.
So, I will honor my word. I have offered to help. And I will stick by what I said. But, that is all. There will be no more “extras” to help.
Tonight I am thankful for getting a sliver of enlightenment about what is being said in my absence. It stings, but now I know the boundaries that need to be kept in this situation. Wisdom is always appreciated; even when it is gained in a less than desirable manner.
