I've taken your advice, since shadow thoughts are up for me at the moment anyways and this is the worst -
I am a manipulative controlling bitch - just like my mother!
Somehow I can "handle" knowing this about myself - until I add the part about being just like my mother - now that gets me upset & ready to jump back into denial!!
Thanks for the timely advice Michael - I needed the boaster innoculation shot!! It does seem to fit well into the Yankee Doodle Dandy tune.....but a picture of singing it to "Don't Cry for me Argentina" in front of an adoring crowd really makes my skin crawl!
And now I'm going to allow myself to add the "sometimes" to the tune! And have a good laugh!!!
