When my son, Austin, was 14 years old, he had a friend who was SPOILED out of his mind! This kid had taken his own parents to court when he didn’t get his way.
Austin came home expecting to get the same benefits as that kid. (He THOUGHT!)
He told me that he was old enough to do WHATEVER he wanted. Well, I informed him… he WASN’T.
Then, he got so frustrated that he said he was going to sue me. I’m not scared of my own kid. So I told him, “Go ahead… SUE me!”
I even gave him my attorney’s number. “Here, CALL him!”
Then, Austin ran upstairs and SLAMMED his bedroom door! So, I calmly followed him up and took his door completely off the hinges. (So there!)
As long as Austin was living in MY house, eating MY Hot Pockets, he was going to obey MY rules!!!
YOU set the conditions in your own life!
NOBODY ELSE can control how you fee, but YOU! People will try to get under your skin. But, don’t let them jack your day and upset you!
Keep your PEACE. Keep your JOY. Stay COOL! Stress will only escalate the situation!
Don’t focus on the problem, just focus on God. He LOVES you and He’s got your back, no matter what!
Have a great day, today! I call you BLESSED!
