Stop It!

Cheer up buttercup 

You didn’t say the wrong thing 

You cared 

That’s all

You’re protective

That’s a good thing

You speak because you care

So stop it! 

The world hasn’t cracked wide open

You don’t always say the wrong thing!

So stop falling into that pit just because love was on your lips. 

“Do everything in Love”

  1. I can totally relate with this. Often times, when I am done with a discussion, I literally go through it again in my head analysing what I should or should not have said. I love how you ended it “… Just because love was on your lips”

    1. I still worry anyways. Last night taking those thoughts captive helped, but then I think I may have said too much again today, so my thoughts spiraled. I’m starting to feel better, and ridiculous at the same time. I’m really good at complicating things. I have to learn to let things go before I make myself miserable.

      1. I know what you mean. I go through the same battles at times. In a way, it’s a good thing. At least it shows we are not flippant about the things we say and do. We try to approach situations with love and grace, not wanting to hurt anyone else in the process.

      2. Yes, that’s so true. That’s why I was trying not to focus so much on my words as much as where it was coming from, but I do tend to overthink, under pray, and then beat myself up afterwards. Knowing is half the battle though, right? Start over… try to do it differently next time.

      3. Good point. Knowing is half the battle, for sure. I pray we both can do better in this area, without the need to beat ourselves up afterwards. I overthink too. That is part of the problem. Just last night I had to shake off something and tell myself not to worry about it. 🤦🏼‍♀️

  2. Ma’am just taught me how to play with words like you did… Really I mean every time I read your poem and go unconscious for couple of minutes then think again n again…😄😄
