There are times -- when I'll let something like this really burn me up for several days.
Other times -- it will go away and then come back periodically for several months.
I'll usually be telling myself something like "I'll deal w/ it later but now is not the time."
It will rub like a splinter under my skin and get all red and infected.
And, still -- I'll trudge with it.
Then, other times, rarely though -- I'll take out the book and do the Steps on it.
It goes away right away -- but then, I end up thinking "I let that SOB off too easy!" LOL.
There is one thing that I can think of right now -- that I've worked on to get rid of after holding on to it for a long time. I guess I was enjoying being so pissed off at the evil doer and I really wanted deep inside me, to go get them and give them what they really deserved! LOL.
I get rid of that thing -- yet, periodically, it will pop right back up!
I haven't been thinking of it for several days now -- but, as I was relating to this -- whammo! There she is occupying space in my head!
The BITCH! LOL.
One thing is for SURE: I ain't never going to be perfect and I ain't never going to be a Saint!
I'm NOT one of those fluffy Spiritual Beings having a Human Experience... as some of my more Spiritual brothers & sisters will say it... I'm just a Human Being -- Having real live Human Being Experiences in a Human world, that has a bunch more sick-o people in it -- as sick as I used to be! LOL.
At least I'm grateful now, that I'm better than I used to be -- because, now... I can look down my nose at them!
Yep. I understand stuff. I've had -- and still get, my share and then some.
The good deal is: We stay sober -- and reasonably happy -- most of the time.
