Boundary Understanding

I have mentioned before that we are studying ‘Boundaries’ in my Bible Study.  It is really giving me new perspectives and understanding in dealing with situations that used to really upset me. 

Today’s Example: 

My BFF in Virginia and I both love Jeff Dunham.  A few weeks ago, we discovered through one of his videos that he was inviting his viewers to participate in a sing-along on video with him and Achmed.  Viewers were invited to submit their videos and Jeff is going to put together a compilation.  Well, both BFF and I forgot about this..until today.  BFF sent me a text that she and her daughter submitted their video.  When I called and asked her for the link, she snapped at me, saying, “I don’t know.  M. did it.  She’s busy right now. You can look it up.”  I could have snapped back; but, I didn’t.

I remembered how she used to be so competitive with me when growing up and realized that she doesn’t want me submitting a video and being in competition with her. For whatever reason, it’s on her.

So, I looked up the information. I was unable to submit a video through my phone and when I called BFF back to ask a question, she apologized for snapping.

I still share this with you to get it out of my system but am proud of myself for not escalating stupid situations anymore.
