I came across this on Pinterest the other day, and it was exactly what I needed to read.
There’s definitely some anger that I’ve been holding onto, even though I try to ignore it (my zodiac sign is Cancer, and we are notorious grudge-holders). Unfortunately, ignoring it means that it shows up at really inopportune moments, usually disguised as anger or sadness about something completely unrelated. But the person at whom I’d be throwing this metaphorical coal? We don’t speak anymore, my anger isn’t reaching them, it’s only hurting me. So rather than repressing it anymore (although I think there would probably be some debate on whether it was ever repressed, given the unholy rage to which this person was subjected), I’m acknowledging it, and then moving on with my life.
In other news, the huge project that I posted a preview of is due on Friday! I’m almost finished, I just need to put the last little touches on it tomorrow. But that’s why I’ve been a bit of an absentee blogette, and haven’t responded to comments for a few days. Sorry, lovelies, I promise I’ll answer over the weekend. (And I’ll post some more pictures of my project! I’m so pleased with how it’s looking, yay!)
