Don’t Let Emotion Rule Your Life

pebbles_ripples_pondDon’t let emotion rule your life.  It can spread and infect everything that surrounds it.  It becomes a series of concentric circles like those made by a pebble being thrown into a pond.  Who knows?  Maybe your morning temper tantrum because the coffeepot timer was not turned on and you didn’t get to have your morning coffee may extend so far that a city bus driver kicks a mother with a sick kid off the bus for not having the correct change.  It may feel better but taking something out on somebody else that is not their fault is contagious and can ruin the day for every person it comes in contact with.  I’m sorry you are feeling bad; but don’t take it out on the wrong person.

Don’t let emotion rule your life.  Sexual feelings aren’t the responsibility of the person that attracted you  Sexual feelings are owned not by the person who elicits them but by the one who has them.  This may be a more common experience for women who have had unwanted and inappropriate passes made towards them.  I had a guy who tried to “cop a feel” on the greyhound bus.  I didn’t say anything; but I shoved stuff between us and changed my seat at the next rest stop.  This has happened to me with someone who was my supervisor and also with someone who was my doctor.  Both I think were married and I was single.  You know, I spent an entire retreat with a group of mostly lesbian women, and never got a pass made at me or an inappropriate touch no matter what we were doing or how we were dressed or undressed?  I am just an ordinary woman.  The movie, Fatal Attraction, portrayed a woman’s obcessive preoccupation with a man who first pursued her and then rejected her.
