Taking The High Road

Musings of A Beautiful Mess
I always try to take the high road, I may not ALWAYS succeed, but the majority of the time I do. People look at me as weak when I take the high road. I've gotten asked "doesn't that piss you off?!" Well of course it does, but going off on someone rarely fixes the problem, usually makes it worse. I'd much rather be patient and allow things to fall into place then get all worked up about it and potentially say or do something stupid.

When Peaches and I got into our stupidest fight ever, I took the high road. It wasn't easy because it would have felt SO good to just yell at her and tell her how immature she's acting and to grow up, but it would've done me no good. I probably would've gotten a headache from yelling at her and lost my voice. I know my words would have not been thought over, so why bother? I'll just be nice and wait for the universe to show her what real life is. When Dirty and I get into arguments, I always take the high road. I'll walk away and not push his buttons to get him to speak, it never works anyway. Things weren't always like that, there was a time I didn't realize he needed some time to chill out and not talking to me for a while is his way of cooling down. I get it now, despite me thinking it's immature, it's his way. Not my place to say it's right or wrong.

After moving, things hit the fan with our old roommate and once again, I took the high road. I am saddened by the way things turned out, but I know I didn't do anything wrong. I did my best to make our living situation benefit her, but it takes more then one to make a compromise work. I know she isn't taking the high road because she has said things to my family about my and Dirty. Personally, I think this is a low blow, but there's no stopping her. She doesn't see it as being wrong, she sees it as talking to her friends about how horrible her roommates were to her. I told my sister and dad that I don't like what she's doing, but not because she's taking behind my back but because she is putting them in a position to defend me. That is what I have a problem with. If my family wants to be friends with her, I don't really care. However, she should have some manners and not put my lil sis and dad in that position, that's not very cool.

Sometimes it sucks being the grown up in these situations but it usually does pay off to take the high road.

Argh. You've got some doozies, girl! Hopefully by taking the high road you are avoiding having the situation blow up even more. Yeesh!
