Watch Your P's and Q's

I'm sorry.

I need you to let me go.  I need to see who I am away from home.

It's not my fault you can only be friends with someone when its convenient.  You are not a princess who should be catered to.  You are 23 and getting married.  Grow the hell up.

I grew up too fast.  I had to be an adult early on.  Help me be a 23 year old.

To Whom It May Concern:  If you were to meet me, or just give me the job, you wouldn't regret it.  I would be one of the best social studies teachers you've ever seen.  Give.  Me.  The.  Job.  Please.

Thank you.  For everything.  Thank you.

We live in a society of political correctness.  I grew up in a family where image meant a lot.  If you were expected to be the good girl who goes to church, doesn't get in trouble, gets A's in school... than thats what you did.  Inside the house may be a tornado but you step out that front door and you put a smile on your face.

There are times in life though that I find myself really wanting to say something to someone.  Something I shouldn't say.  Or perhaps, can't say because I worry about how others see me.  Or maybe it needs to be said but I just don't know if I should be the one to say it.  So I hold back.  But this is something we all do isn't it?  We grow up watching our p's and q's.  So as we get older we hold our tongue.  We watch what we say.  We edit as we interact with the people around us.  But sometimes wouldn't it be great to just say what we think?

If you could say anything to someone, what would you say?

  1. I am proud that I have recently discovered the ability to say what I'm feeling. And sure, I might edit what I say a little, but I never edit it in a way that might interfere with my message. I just drop out the F-words.

    I have always thought that the ability to say what you feel is very enviable. And I'm happy to say that I am on that path and the stress I feel has been lowered significantly because of it.


Life is busy, thanks for taking a moment to leave a note!
