Nina's Stillwater Calendar

Down Girl! Chill out.

So today I was talking with a woman who likes me, who cares, who I've known for a very long time. And she said something so totally offensive to me that I was speechless. I just stared at her for a moment and she was like "What, no comeback?" Apparently, she thought it was a funny joke. It took like five breaths to calm down and think "Chill out Nina, she didn't mean it" over and over in my head. And here I am hours later, and it is still kinda nagging at me. And she probably has no idea it bothered me at all.

Don't suppress your hurt feelings or try to cancel them out. They are valid, Nina. It's so normal to feel emotions first and THEN try to figure them out--but don't act like they're not there. I personally think you should approach this good friend of yours. I love you!
