I wrote this several years ago… and you know.. I STILL find myself saying this … not as much .. but I still do say it even tho I don’t mean it. Personal or professional life.. we all do this in one way or another.
… how often do you find yourself saying this???
Someone does something intentional sometimes and most times not. It leaves you with bad feelings in one way or another and you say .. “It’s ok”.
But is it really ok?
What do you do with those feelings you are left with?
Are you able to manage them away? Do you just bury them deep inside you.. in that place where we often place the things we don’t want to deal with .. or don’t know how to deal with .. or are afraid to deal with?
I find myself so often saying this little phrase… as small as it is … it can be very damaging inside.
Not sure how to stop myself from just saying “it’s ok”. Being the kind of person that I am, always wanting to please others and not make anyone feel bad .. wanting to fix all that is wrong with the world. How do I stop myself from saying “it’s ok” and still not feel guilty for possibly making someone feel bad because of it?
Another question in saying that is why is it “I” feel guilty about telling someone it’s NOT ok and that I am hurt or feeling negative from whatever it was that happened? Especially when I am speaking about something the other person did or said .. because that is the reason we say “it’s ok” to begin with. Telling them not to worry about their words or actions. Telling them not to worry that their words or actions may be causing pain to another.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm .. oh dear .. it looks like I have opened yet another can of worms inside myself.. now how to work it all out and learn from it and heal myself from all the many years of saying “it’s ok”.
Will the day ever come that I will find myself not ever HAVING to say “it’s ok” ???
I guess only time will tell .. but I’m certainly not holding my breath…lol
I’d DIE! lol
