I was out in the field all day today. It was a gorgeous but very hot day to work on the water. I'm still mulling over what happened to my friend but have decided that she and the dominatrix need to discuss this and work out a solution. I'm staying out of this fight.
I wish that people would say what they mean and mean what they say. I also wish that in sharing people would realize that Less is More. We don't need to share everything or every detail. We need to be able to tell how it is now, how it was and how we came to recognize that Al-Anon had something to offer.
I'm still planning on attending as many Al-Anon and open AA meetings as I can. No one yet has kicked me out of an AA meeting, nor has anyone asked what I was doing there. I just need to move along and not get bogged down in life's injustices. It's a raw lesson in learning how not to be and how to give people the benefit of the doubt, just as I would want them to do for me. Maybe the heat's got my brain today or maybe I'm just learning how I don't want to be. There are good lessons to be learned from pain and sadness.
