Saying No to Being Nice: Today’s Letter to Christopher

Dear Christopher,

December 17, 2019

I really appreciate you pointing out what I already knew last night. Even though I already knew it. I wasn’t aware that I knew…if that makes sense. You pointing it out confirmed my truth and my need to say no to others in the name of focusing on my health. I’m willing to stand firm in doing what I need to in order to heal. Being with you has given me a lot of clarity in that area. I am very grateful to you for that and so much more. You not putting up with bullshit has been an example to me and an eye opener on how much bullshit I put up with in the name of being “nice”. I’m giving up the habit of being nice and instead am to be forthcoming and honest about what I am willing to do and not to do. I am tired of not being fully well.
Thank you for your example of strength.
Thank you for accepting me as I am.
Thank you for sweet kisses.
Thank you for being my friend.
I love you dearly.
Yours always,
