This taken from Angela's response to Haggie's ring thread. I love it. I think I've gotten to, or at least a good ways getting to, that feeling about..well, just about everything pertaining to the way I'm handling my life. None (almost none) of us have never been in these shoes before. I didn't even know how to act half the time, and I kept going back to grief books to figure out how. I didn't want to, G-d forbid, do it wrong. I didn't have to - this is MY life. Think about this. I don't have kids, and I know that puts an extra big something into the equation, but I guess I'm just talking about society in general. You know what I've figured out? I don't have to answer anyone's questions. I don't have to explain myself. I don't have to defend myself because I'm feeling what I'm feeling. An example: this is the time of year I'm getting asked what I'm going to do when I'm off in January. My stock answer this year is "whatever I want to do". I don't know why, but that seems to disturb some people - I can sense it in their reactions. WTF? Ah, yes, the rebel is alive and well in my heart, lol. Just ramblin..
