No bed of roses

People can  be hypocritical, sarcastic, two faced, fickle, dishonest, hateful, evil, deviant, abusive, compulsive, AND loving, honest, compassionate, giving, selfless, forgiving, patient, kind, considerate, AND empathetic. Obviously there are many other adjectives that describe people but one thing is for sure, we aren’t always a bed of roses. Even the most purest person can be an absolute ass. Well maybe not an “ass” but definitely a bed of “thorns” with no sign of rose petals! Those are the type of people you ask, ” What happened to this person, or Who is this person really?” You know the type, the kind that throw you waaaaaaaay off track and leave you in a state of shock. Yes, yes we all have bad days but I’m talking about pure hell, one extreme to the other type of behavior. We all have run into someone like this at some point in our lives right? What do you do? I guess that’s a loaded question because it depends on the relationship. There are many things you can do, many choices you can take and decisions are based on the relationship with that person that may be having a “mental breakdown.” It’s important to look at all variables.

So hear we are in holiday season once again and many people find it to be stressful. Perhaps you will run into that person that’s “no bed of roses” during your holiday shopping, or maybe it’s someone you live with that’s having “a moment” and they may just need a time out from the world. Maybe you’ll smile and forgive that person of there momentary breakdown, or maybe you wont. However you choose to deal with people is your prerogative. May I suggest to remember nobody’s perfect, pray for there well being but never, never forget you’re a priority and your well being is just as important (emotional & physical).

“I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best” Marilyn Monroe

“If your going through hell, keep going.” Winston S.Churchill

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and whatever else you may celebrate!

Live, love, honor, and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.

 

 

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
