j.a.d.e. AND jaded...


 Don't justify, argue, defend, or explain.

I think maybe, that the last word was added to make up the akronym?

I really love to explain, when I am asked stuff. Over years of 12 step recovery, my communication

has improved a lot- at least I believe so.

But stepping in and explaining stuff- where there is no interest or audience is classic codependency, in my view. aww

But, taking the akronym, as a whole- yes. I believe that in recent times I stopped hitting myself over the head

with a brick wall.

Dealing with gaslighting, and elements of narcissism, I always found very difficult to master.

I believe that the reason for this was that I was schooled in this role at a younger age, and for so long.

I would have not risen to address this unless I had no alternative. My health and my body was so mashed up. hmm

I never believed that I was in victim mode, exactly. I believed that this was my own poisonality. 

Fast forward to today- hey!

I may only be sharing these thoughts with my own higher power!.

I am so over being concerned about what other people might think about me.

"What other people think about the is none of my business!" 

What is my business I being proactive and detached in a caring loving way. aww ...
