I am constantly reminded of how intelligent and independent I can be. Certain things that once freaked me out no longer phase me, I am realizing that I am a well educated woman with far more abilities than I had even a year ago. I know that I should accept help from others when it is given, or I should ask for help when faced with certain situations but I feel if I don’t need to ask for help and I am able bodied and perfectly capable of solving a problem on my own then why should I involve anyone else? The more people you tell and that know and you get involved in the things that you face on a daily basis in your personal life the more drama and talking ensues. I went through a lot this year and with the air getting cooler I am reminded that everything will become still in the winter, when cuddling up at home by the fireplace and preparing roasts in the oven becomes far more desirable than running around creating trouble by the moonlight. I am thoroughly enjoying the new peace and quiet that I have found in my life, and in my home. I know that people assume I am anti-social or depressed, or that I’m a bitch, among other things but I am finding that I’m just the opposite. I am comfortable and quiet and accepting of everyone and everything that’s going on around me and as long as I don’t try and control other peoples actions or fight against the situations that I face on a daily basis and I confront them, accept them, and solve them in the most simple way possible nothing becomes complicated, and even if it does if I remember that panic will only complicate things more, eventually things will calm down again.
