Remembering the word was easy, I created a sticky note for the home page of my computer in which I wrote the word–crossed out!!! Finding a substitution was not so easy. Better by far not to have a discussion about the person who generated the emotion, not so easy when the individual delights in being irritating and disruptive. I have resumed passing the peace despite the fact she insists on turning her back on me. Lots of opportunity for that this week. So I’ve given up a word, which has lightened my emotions (?) and have taken up being the kinder person. Also, getting rid of the emotional word has also helped get rid of the descriptive expletives an equally good if not better thing. It’s like having a weight lifted off of my soul.
