People! Welcome back to my blog and it’s going to be HAD!
I’ve been under-the-weather the past couple of days and couldn’t focus whatsoever on typing because of my constant runny nose, so I apologize for being away (somewhat). With that being said, I had a situation that came up in regards to a couple of voice notes that could help some of you analyze worry situations.
Best Friend + End-of-The-Year Trip
As some of you may know, I’ll be hopping on a Cathay Pacific flight to head back home to Phoenix, Arizona to spend the holidays — or am I?
A troubled situation came into full-circle when I heard from my best friend that she could be in a relationship by years end. Now, some of you are probably wondering, “how is that a situation?” Given the fact that I’ll be staying at her house, spending Christmas and New Years with her family, and even a snowboarding trip on the horizon…..this could be a recipe for disaster. The dynamics could be completely thrown off because someone is being added to the group; and not only do I not know what his personality is, but also the fact that he’s my best friend’s boyfriend. So, what did I do to figure this out?
Put A Stop-Loss On Your Worry
This is the most critical when it comes to friendships. Putting your feelings out there and calling it for how you see it. If you don’t do this, you can let things fester which then leads to a debacle. Get out on the table and then the “ball is on their court.”
What’s The Worse That Can Happen?
Well, if I cancel a trip that’s already book, it could possibly make the relationship regress. Why? Well, cancelling a trip it not only offensive, but having already booked it….that means I seriously believe that something is imminent. So, I asked myself this question and well….the worse is that her and I will not talk as often as we do now. In the future, who knows if I ever go back to America to visit (within the next five to ten years) because she has been the only person worth saying (the story about my family is a hefty one). That’s about it though.
Also, I’ll end up going to UBUD in Bali for a getaway in a sanctuary….that’s literally the worse. Or, I’ll go to the bustling heart of HCMC in Vietnam. Funny how I deem those two options as the “worse case scenario.” LOL
