I admit y’all, this week, I let the ugly in. I let some sad person get to me. I grew tired of the abuse I was receiving. By now, I should know how to battle this better than I do. Lord knows I’ve been dealing with it long enough.
Since letting the ugly in, I have felt such anxiety just waiting for the next thing to happen. Not because I’m in the wrong but because the Ugly is real and it’s real ugly, y’all. See the thing is, when you let the ugly in, you let the Devil wrap his claws into you and it’s hard to get him off of you.
And the Devil is not our friend. In the end, I’m the one who’s suffering while the Ugly is happy because it got me! I even told my husband I wanted to divorce him because that’s the only way I see that I can rid myself of this vile person. But sadly, even then I doubt they’d give up.
But y’all, my husband is amazing! He’s truly made for me. He listened to me, though it hurt him, and he woke up the next morning loving me more, if that’s at all possible. He kissed me and hugged me and assured me that it will all be alright. He didn’t run from my Ugly. He loved it away.
He made my worries less. He lifted me up when I was down. He listened to me and advised me from his heart and he helped me find my way past the Ugly.
Life is too short to let other’s drama get you down. Life is too precious to worry about the unhappiness of other’s lives as well. I feel sorry for this Ugly person who has inserted themselves into my life because they’re truly missing out on all they’ve been blessed with in this life, consumed by their bitterness and trying to destroy others simply because they are unhappy as they are in life.
My life is wonderful. I have my beautiful children who I love more than I could ever describe. I have my husband who loves me so much more than I truly deserve. I have my Mother, who is deeply enjoying the Soap Opera that is my life, bringing her much laughter because no one knows me as well as she does. I have our beautiful pets who I enjoy snuggling as much as possible. Life is wonderful, our days are wonderful and I refuse to continue to let this ugly get me down.
Until Next Time…
