Personally I would have asked the person what I’m about to ask you to share or elaborate on… but you will read why that wasn’t an option. Here it goes: Sometimes things go as planned, and then sometimes The Uni-verse has a different plan. Seeing the best of my current situation, I found myself coming from a place of acceptance and forgiveness to establish a friendship out of what most would give up on due to rejection, hurt or fear. I stood by my boundaries and respected them as I did myself. I believe in love and that it should be given unconditionally.
So here I was, in the midst of my day, asked for a favor and in my playful loving character said something along the lines of, “Sure! With one condition, smile for me!” I said this only because I recognized a heavy weight was holding him back from being his usual self. B@@M!
Getting up from his desk and packing his belongings, he was annoyed, disturbed and blurted, “I don’t need this S*%t, I’ll go somewhere else to finish my work!” I held in what I wanted to say because I did not want to worsen the situation but I did ask, “By s*&t, what do you refer to?” He replied, “you touching my face, telling me to do things…” The use of other improper words were expressed and at that point I sat in awe at what had just happened. I was being nice and instead a time bomb went off making me feel like I had pushed it too far as he left with his belongings. I later sent him a text telling him that I did not feel I had crossed a boundary since I was being me in my home. I also explained I cared about him and was only trying to reach out not expecting him to react in discomfort. I suggested to leave him alone. Here’s where I am confused. Was I in my wrong as I was just being me in the comfort of my own home? Should I have not meddled in trying to put a smile on a friend’s face?
