The past weekend had not been a good one for me. Workwise, I have to deal with a lot of issues I was not even aware I committed the previous days. I was so shocked, upset, frustrated that no one seems able to help me through it. It does not make it easy that there is a confidentiality clause on it- so talking to people who might be able to shed some light especially from work was not allowed.

What I did today was explain my side. I am very assertive and no matter what they say, no matter how they rephrased their questions, I answered the same way. It had been validated again that I truly can take care of myself. The first part of the meeting were not that bad but in the end, I felt that I had been justified.
What have I learned- sometimes, when you stand, you stand on your own. You stand alone. It was not as hard as I thought it would be probably because I had done that before. It does also help that I knew exactly what I am supposed to be doing. I understood then that the world is against me and, there is nothing that I can do but defend myself.
Life is too short to be vengeful. But, I am certainly be keeping an eye to the people I perceive are a threat to my practice. But today, life taught me this: when you stand, you stand alone sometimes. But you are not really alone. You have you. Love you. Advocate for you. No matter what, forgive you.
