It feels so nice to feel comfortable in your relationships...
Man to woman,
Woman to woman,
Elder to younger,
Friend to Friend,
All of those,
There is nothing more uncomfortable than always trying to work to make something work...
I know, no pain no gain...
Sometimes yes, mostly no...
As we age we discover what we love, like and hopefully what we can do without...
And as hard as it is to admit,
There are relationships we would be better off without,
And they without us,
I spent so many years in politically correct environments,
That one day I woke up in a politically correct relationships,
Spending so much time saying the right thing,
Keeping your face neutral, when your eyes wanted to bug,
And your mouth was dying to fly open,
Something changed for me when my mom died,
I realized that relationships should feed your soul,
And that you should feed your relationships,
I needed to be around people who laughed,
And moved on, without missing a beat,
Who I could do those same things with,
So I had to go into my relationship closets,
And recycle some things, much like those clothes I was hanging onto,
What has been so amazing and heartwarming is that like my clothes closets,
My relationship closets never feel empty,
Just as I have been able to purchase new clothes,
The fulfilling relationships have continued to replace those that weren't working,
That were just hanging there...
It feels so good to laugh with, cry with, argue with, agree to disagree with those who,
I get and who get me,
Not always having to worry about stepping on oversensitive toes,
Or having to read between lines and figuring out what was meant by that,
Now I have so many places I can go when I need a hug, a kiss, a slap,
And those people know they can come to me for the same things,
Particularly beautiful is we can all sleep at night without tossing and turning about did we,
Say or do the right thing,
Because we know that even if we didn't, it will be okay,
Because tomorrow is another day,
Filled with lovely relationships...
Love and Blessings,
Angelia Vernon Menchan
