I’ve gotten myself into this frenzy of saving people from “wrong” choices.

It started with Yahoo Answers and it escalated to several Facebook groups.

People post something like

“My 18 month old is biting. Spanking and time outs aren’t working.”

And then I get annoyed, because spanking and time outs aren’t teaching tools. And I get anxiety about this person getting MY RIGHT answer and taking my advice.

I am making myself insane.

Also, I’ve taken to really being annoyed about the lack of tolerance shown by so many people in my personal non-writer Facebook. “God wants you to say Merry Christmas” and “Saying Happy Holidays is turning your back on Jesus.”

Tis the season for intolerance.

So, here is my plan. Block Yahoo Answers. Leave these crazy mom communities which seem so often to thrive on drama and infighting and the whole “mommy wars” thing and regain the energy I’m losing toward worrying about things that are not in my control. I will give up my good fight to someone else who has more energy and time than me.

What things are you losing energy to? Could you let go of some of those things and regain that energy?

  1. Asrai, good choices. For the most part, I don’t take on other people’s drama. We all choose to do our own thing and as long as I don’t have to deal with the consequences, I’m a happy camper. it gets much easier – I promise.

    merry Christmas. the new site looks fine. I still don’t like much of mine either, but since I don’t know how to change it, and I don’t want to bother my friend who set it up, it will continue as it is. best of all, it’s not life or death, so it doesn’t really matter.

    enjoy

    • I just want to save people. My aunt told me I get it from my mom, she wants to save people as well. I also realize I like drama, the energy in it.
      There are lots of themes within wordpress.org installed via your host, it`s pretty easy to change. But most of them have a few features and then adverts for the paid version that are “better”.
