Micro-Story: The Drip Effect

Sometimes…We live around others, who suffer from, “The Drip Effect“. It could be a family member, spouse, or a friend. Everyday, there is a constant mirage of wrongs, blames, and who done its. Their life is about complaining, and how the world has wronged them. The continual negativity flow; is like a slow drip from a leaking faucet.

Over time, this slow dribble of water or negativity, will either cause corrosion of faucet pipes or toxic stress to a listening person. If you have been subject to: the seconds, minutes, or endless hours of this toxic dribble flu.

One must take action now, and repair the leaking faucet or dispose of it all together, or lets say… walk away from negative dribble, before it destroys the goodness in you.

I’m one, who chose to walk away. It did cause anxiety and hyper tension, and I was forced into a hospital bed with the sound warnings that I could suffer from a stroke. It took 3 times of this drip effect before I took action.

Letting go isn’t easy, but it offers strength

And I took strength in moving on, and I recovered quite gracefully to become an author of this here art and poetry blog.

…I am grateful for the opportunity to speak and write about it…

Please take care of you!
