My rule for this week… (#sol18 Day 26/31)

In order to shore up any possible defenses that I may need this week (Spring Break with lots of uncharted family time), I decided to give myself a rule.

It’s nice to have a rule to which you can refer when you find yourself grasping for some additional support or stability.

Here’s my rule:

I am not going to answer questions about anyone else’s plans or thoughts or past words or feelings. I am going to be responsible for myself.

“Is your mother going to…”

“Did Dad say…”

“Isn’t your brother supposed to…”


Nope. Go to the source. Ask the person directly. Have a conversation. I am not this trip’s Keeper of the Knowledge.

  1. Great rule! Your bringing light to that answering for others thoughts, plans, feelings, makes me aware of how that plays out in my life as well. I just might adopt your rule. πŸ™‚
