I have been raised to be a super polite and a caring person. Most of my life I would rather sacrifice my own feelings and comfort than to hurt someone else’s. But growing as a person and becoming a mother has taught me that sometimes it is better to stand up and express your opinions even if they are not going to be met with an understanding. This time I mustered my courage to speak up against a dangerous kids play in our community and I made myself a new enemy – a mom of that other kid. Interestingly, when I blurted out what I thought, it felt so gooood and liberating to allow myself to be what I am instead of just staying quiet and feeling anger. On the downside, I can feel the negative energy this has created, the woman certainly despises me. But the best of all, I don’t care and feel good as a Blatantly Brazen and Judgmental B.tch.
