My friend’s were in a car accident yesterday, less than a block from my home! I found out from a dear friend, who is also my life sponsor. Yes, I have a sponsor to get through life. Everyone should have one , I mean it! Just for informational purposes everyone is A-OK, and home now.
The next few pieces of information I received were thin and sketchy, by text. When I called no one answered and my orders were to contact my best friend’s son with the information so that her daughter heard it only from her brother!!! The only #$%^& information I had was there was an accident and her chest hurt! Yeah! Great! I was stuck carless at home! I was officially pissed. I called the boy and then had to leave a message! I felt like @#$% !!
Hours of this until an actual phone call was made, from my friends phone, from another friend who had her phone and then would not let me speak to my friend. Very angry again! She was right there and all I wanted was to hear her voice…DENIED!!! I seethed!
What did I learn from this…you’ll be surprised! I was…
This was not about me.
I was worried that this meant more care taking for me and if that were to be the case I was not in control right then! Not a good feeling.
That this was my “control freak” taking over,
I was frightened…I pride myself on my lack of fear. I was scared!
I was sick, and someone else had managed to get attention! How wonderful was that realization, do you think?
Finally I realized what I have said all along to my bestest friend…text messaging leaves a lot to the imagination…and what it leaves is doubt, misunderstanding and a lack of thorough information on any topic. Technology has now made conversations devoid of humanity and emotion…
I’m just saying…Talk to me! Won’t you just talk to me?
