My Kindness Threshold

It's about to get real.  Seriously.  I think I've reached my "kindness threshold".  Who would have ever thought that was possible?  By all accounts, I am a very tolerant person [or at least I think I am] but the last week or so has certainly taken its toll on my patience.  Buttons are being pushed, people and I am becoming rather irritated.

I won't go into the specifics, but let's just say that I am seriously tired of being taken advantage of.  There I said it.  It seems that in almost every facet of my life these days, I am being tested.  As with everything that is me --- I care too much.  It's who I am and it's what I do, and I am convinced that it's my biggest downfall.  That care and compassion should not, however, be mistaken for weakness. Yes, I am kind but I am not weak {two totally different things}.

I gain my strength by learning from my mistakes.  I trust freely, I care deeply and I give considerably.  Those three attributes are what makes me who I am, but when you take advantage of any of them or all of them, then I'm going to have something to say about that.
You many not want to hear what I have to say, but I'm going to say it anyway {I'm Italian. I speak my mind}.  So today, I think I'm going to "say what I need to say" to those who need to hear it.

Be kind~not weak,
