No, No, No. Stop.


Hello.  My name is Stephenie.  I’m a “fixer” and a “taker oner” and an “apologizer.”  I am no longer in the market of fixing anyone.  I want to be a counselor, and so I’m going to have to learn that it is not my job to fix people.  People have to fix themselves.  They can just come talk it out with me and I’ll walk with them while they’re discovering themselves.  They deserve the opportunity to do that… I got that opportunity, so why shouldn’t they?  I am no longer taking on other people’s flaws as my own.  The “they are the way they are because of something I did” can’t fly any longer.  It’s exhausting.  It’s so tiresome to take on everyone’s problems all the time.  I have enough of my own.  I sure don’t need anyone else’s.  They can keep them.  Lastly and most importantly.  I’m not apologizing for being me anymore.  I’m fantastic.  I’m fun, and full of life, and feisty, and I am who I am, too late to change it now.  If someone doesn’t like it, well too bad! 🙂
