Last night I received a nasty text from my oldest sister. Totally uncalled for and completely rude (for lack of a better word). I could sit here and be upset but that would just be a waste of my precious energy. I love old sayings because they are so true. “Consider the source” and “With age comes wisdom” and so many more the like.
I couldn’t even be upset if I tried. You see, my sister is just a sad case and I believe those that are down and out, mean and hurtful are those that need love the most. I didn’t even respond to her text message because I believe she just wants the attention and for me to blow it up bigger than she already made it. I won’t give her the satisfaction.
Truth is, she stuck her nose in where it didn’t belong. That’s when those old sayings come in handy. 5 years ago I would have immediately reacted to her rudeness and cruelty. But with age, comes wisdom (yassss, it’s true). I can see now that reacting would be the worst possible scenario for me. It would only serve to hurt her and make things worse. Plus, I need to “consider the source”. I wish I could say I was proud of my oldest sister but I am not. So, why do I care what she thinks of me and what she has to say to me? Truth is, I don’t and I’m glad I don’t.
Therefore, I will not respond. My husband told me to text her back, “Fuck off” but you know what? That would only hurt my mom the most, and I just don’t have the heart to do that. She really had it coming, but I’ll hand this one over to God.
