The Great Divorce













As usual
my family of origin is
working overtime
to attempt to inflict
shame and guilt about
their own crap.
I love the attempt to once again
spank me about choices I made
twenty or thirty years ago
and then efforts to shame me a little
more about how I may or may
not respond to current day events.
I can't tell you how
to love me, but I can certainly
prevent whether or not
you are in my life to
make me feel badly.
As of now, you are NOT.
I will draw my boundaries and
feel empowered by them.
I choose how I feel today, not you.
