Saw this picture the other day, and it sums up exactly how I have been feeling the last month and a half. I do try to stay off my soapbox. I mean that really preachy soap box, but I can't take it anymore. I'm not sure what good it does, because I think I have 2 readers (and it doesn't apply to those 2). But, be warned that I'm officially "stepping up on my box".
Please don't tell me what I should and shouldn't feel. Unless you have walked in my shoes and have the exact circumstances (and no one has), don't judge me. Yes I feel things that I shouldn't feel. Yes things hurt my feelings that shouldn't. I'm not perfect, and to my knowledge I never claimed to be.
If you have never had children, please don't criticize me and tell me what I should have or shouldn't have done with mine. I will be the first to admit that I sucked (excuse me for that word Judy) at parenting. But one thing no one can fault me for is that I loved and still love my children more than anything. I have great children who love the Lord! And, just because you have raised dogs doesn't make you an expert on children. Just saying...
How I spend my money is no one's business. I hate that you make me feel guilty when I buy something. Yes, I am in debt and should never spend another cent or go anywhere, but I have to live a little. A large portion of my debt is medical bills and other circumstances that you know nothing about.
Ok, I'm done, and stepping down from my box! Most admit that I feel a few pounds lighter right now!
