I.W.S.G.

WELCOME TO AUGUST INSECURE
WRITERS SUPPORT GROUP:
 
One very insecure writer this month.
 
 
THE E/MAIL:
I recieved an e/mail 
At the week-end.
What it contained was upsetting
The sender used to be a" friend".
 
It said "I was a failure"
As a mother and grandmum.
That is why my offsprings
Don't want me in the years to come.
 
I was brought up to respect
Other people's feelings
So the content I read,
Set my head reeling.
 
The love for my family has always been paramount,
From the day that they were born.
The ups and downs they endured
I was always there when they were forlorn.
 
Their dad and myself
In their talents we were involved.
To give them every oppourtunity
And every problem solved.
 
What I have or have not done,
To a failure I've become.
I can't fathom out.
From the rooftops I want to shout.
 
I appreciate I'm no Angel
Or perfect in any way.
But what was written in that e/mail
Ruined my Saturday.
 
I love my family unconditionally,
Although we're not in touch.
I think of them daily,
And are proud of them so much.
 
I live in hope that one day
On the phone I'll get that ring.
Saying " Hello Mum it's me"
That means everything.
 
When that day arrives,
And I know all is safe and sound.
I know I'm not a failure
But a mum for them to be proud.

  4. I have learnt in life to ignore certain things that came my way. One works on those that one can control and work on them irrespective of other's opinions. As long as our intention is good one waits for the outcome. If the outcome gets by and one is happy that is all that matters. If it does not come, just wait! It will work itself to be successful later. Just wait! It will happen Yvonne, just wait!

  5. Some people are just miserable and they enjoy spreading that misery to others. Don't let that person's poor attitude affect you.

  7. Such a hurtful message, and one you're right to work at ignoring. Move on. They will regret it, I'm sure.

  8. It's hard to process hurtful messages. I like to think it's the person projecting their feelings/insecurities onto me. Often, it is.

    1. I know the person who wrote it and he/she is very insecure so perhaps you are so very right, Thanks for coming by and comment.

  9. To me, someone that says hurtful things to others must be miserable themselves so they take it out on other people to make themselves feel better. It doesn't work. They need to see why they're so rude.
    Sorry this happened to you. Ignore and enjoy the friends that truly love you. My thoughts, anyhow.

  12. Even in the calmest waters there can come a disturbance to rock your boat. Just try to keep that boat from overturning and wear a life vest just in case. You don't want to drown in seas of sorrow.
