When it rains…it pours…

This week has been legitimately awful. Nothing seems to go right this week!

And because of that, I’ve done just about everything I preach against. I’ve done everything I HATE doing.

I haven’t gotten enough sleep. I’ve overtrained subbing group fitness classes. I’ve expended all my self-control and tried to push through without giving myself a primal cheat, which of course led to a giant binge that only made me feel sick and more drained.

But I’ve got to shake myself out of this funk! I’m determined after what happened last night…

Ryan is a preschool teacher. He is great with the kids, even though I’m pretty sure all of them will have a weird sense of humor after hanging out with him….

Anyway, last night one of the parents called him when we were eating dinner. He at first didn’t answer since we were eating.

But she kept texting him and finally left a voicemail. The voicemail was accusatory and attacking.

Ryan was taken back by her tone and her unfounded accusations. She put him down and tried to get a rise out of him. She WANTED to create drama and to make Ryan feel bad.

But he didn’t let her win.

He stood up to her but he didn’t yell at her or validate her accusations.

He didn’t let the negative things she said about him get to him.

He didn’t let her win.

There are lots of people out there that will yell at you and try to make you feel bad about yourself for no legitimate reason. There are lots of people out there that will put you down when you’ve done nothing wrong.

But those people only win if you believe them.

Don’t let those people win. There are enough things to battle with in life. Don’t let stupid people be one of them.

Believe in yourself.

I believe in myself despite all the crap that has gone on this week. That is why I’m pulling myself out of this funk TODAY!

I will not waste one more minute not enjoying life!!!! 🙂

    Ah! so it’s not just me this week. My week has been a bit off, too.

    I love your positive attitude. I believe in you and I believe in me. I believe in me in a large part due to your helping me. Sorry to hear the Ryan had to put up with such a nasty person. People can be so mean.

  2. That stinks. I am sure by now this is just ‘water under the bridge’ but it is so hard when someone does that to you or your loved one.

    And it is good to know you are human:)
