Getting Over Myself
I made a big mistake at the weekend and want to apologise to anyone I’ve offended.
Two things in life that are guaranteed to have me curled up in a ball of discomfort are people being kind to me and discussions about money.
After my post about Steven’s move to his new house, I was overwhelmed by the responses on Twitter and Facebook of people offering practical and financial help. I did what I always do when faced with kindness – I rejected it.
That was ungracious and rude of me.
I’ve had a few conversations with people since and realised how much love there is out there for Steven. I can see that folk want to express their love and support him with the move.
One of his online friends has set up a gofundme page for him and thanks to people’s generosity, I can now arrange for a team of decorators to come and do the whole house for him. They’ll be able to do it better and a lot quicker than me and that will be a huge weight off my shoulders.
Steven has already chosen his colour scheme and he’s going for a pale lime in every room!
Thank you so much for the incredible response to the move. I can’t begin to describe how moved I am by so much human warmth.
