Daily Meditation 591–10/9/2023

“To be honest…I’m not interested in you because…w-well…I think you’re too overweight for my taste.”

“You are not a great friend, to be honest. You’re a Narcissist. You constantly bum money and scarcely pay it back. You need to get over yourself.”

“Why don’t you go see a professional? I’m worried about your drinking problem — really. Please see someone!”

“I’m only trying to help you.”

If you’ve ever been in one of these positions, how does it feel?

I hurts. A lot.

You feel angry.

And what is the thought that crosses your mind?

“It’s all their fault I feel like this.”

They’re insensitive.

It all falls on them, how you feel.

As if they need to control themselves.

Now, turn the tables:

“You’re not tall enough for me to even consider dating you!”

“I’m sick of you going out with them and never asking me to come with. You’re inconsiderate.”
