    I read a nice sentiment today that I can no longer find. Paraphrasing, it was something like...

    'Do not trust your heart to someone who will not protect & honor it.'

    Sounds reasonable... & like something everyone who values themselves takes to heart.

    Be well...

    I love it. Sad when you find out after the fact.

    Yes, absolutely... we've all been there, I'm afraid. Some of us (raises hand), multiple times.

    But, speaking for myself only... once I hit affront #3, 4... I realized I'm creating or allowing it.

    I wasn't creating... so, I was just allowing bad behavior & accepting unacceptable actions/words on behalf of another. No longer. Oddly... 1-1/2 yrs of forced solitude with Covid helped me realize that I'm better off alone than with a deficiente (IT for moron)... lol.

    We'll all land on our feet. The problem with being stunning, like you, Mel, is you attract everyone to you. Discernment is what I learned. And, yes, sometimes we can be deceived. I've just learned to take a step back & look harder... in other words... I look at someone who's asked me for a date if I'd recommend him to a friend. It's happened 3 times recently... the reply... nope! So, I kindly said, 'no thank you' & moved on. Their response, all insulting upon polite rejection... made me realize I'd made the right decision.

    We don't always know. We can be deceived. I certainly have been. But, I refuse to let the past testa di cavolo (cabbage head) influence my present & future any longer.

    Many didn't deserve my time or attention to begin with... they deserve no more.

    We'll all be good. It's a new era.

    Be well...

    You are wise (and also give me WAY too much credit). I love that you’ve found your way in value and worth. Covid silver lining for the win. Thank you.💗

    Why did it take me so long to see the real him and why can I not forget about him. :/

    It’s a little like being in the ocean.
    The waves just keep coming and if you don’t dive under them, they’ll take you down. 🤔

    I just cleaned my kitchen floor using only my feet and some baby wipes without spilling my wine.....if anybody needs a life coach.
    :p

    I don’t know if I’m more impressed by the floor cleaning or the day drinking.🙌🏽

    Do you like the looks of this?

    @Miz_Owl, is he yours?? He's so cute. :) If I dropped my dogs' leashes, they'd be dust in the wind. Whoosh.

    “Say too much. Show too much. Love too much”. The story of my life. I’d rather be “too much” sometimes and at least I’m being real about it.
