Assumptions!

Venn_A_intersect_B_alt.svgWell here’s the story, I was asked to puppy sit for 3 days so this family could take their children to Disney Land for a vacation. I agreed because I really love this puppy and I like these people and I just like to help people. Well they were suppose to come and pick their puppy up yesterday and come 10:00 p.m. I messaged them to see if I could go to bed or if they were coming to get her. She responded not too long after that (she was driving which is why I hadn’t heard from her). She said they would be here tomorrow that they wouldn’t make it home till around midnight because of traffic. That was fine by me so I went to bed. I went to bed angry mind you (don’t know why but I was angry) and I woke angry. My mind has been messing with me.

Well it was around 10:30 a.m. and I still hadn’t heard anything so now I’m beginning to thing these people are taking advantage of me. They aren’t communicating anything at all. When the hell are they coming for her? What I did was I jumped without even realizing it back into my old bad habit of assuming. I learned awhile ago that assumptions are usually wrong and yet my mind goes haywire and I jump right back into old bad behaviors. The puppies family got ahold of me and they had a perfectly legit and damn good reason for not contacting me when they did. They apologized, explained and let me know that they would be here after work.

What an ass I feel like but it just goes to show how badly I always have to analyze my thoughts. I NEED to keep this conscious!

Well I am a mother of three children (well not children anymore). I am also a recovering addict trying to figure out reality and healthy adult living. I guess you can say I am soul searching. I am a positive person who tries to see the glass as half full.
