The last two days my thoughts have been on the problems with my hair salon. Often life goes like that.
Today I resolved the problem I had and made the decision that it was time to move on and I’m okay with my decision. Although I normally pride myself on working through problems and nine times out of ten I work through them successfully, this outcome I could never change.
The problems weren’t about me, but they often aren’t. When others instigate as an issue is usually a reflection of how they’re feeling about themselves and that’s reflected in their behaviour towards me. I just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. It isn’t right when others are not happy and they bring others down.
When someone initiates a negative message, they are implying we should respond. That just because we respond, doesn’t mean the conversation has to spiral out of hand. I didn’t come out thinking I was in a bad place, I felt as though they had understood and that we had reached an understanding.
I had problems with my hair and I wanted them to know what those problems were. It’s easy to look back and live with the ‘what if’s.’ I didn’t want to do that. I left the salon knowing I’d done the right thing. Hopefully they will have understood.
