SOC: Easter and Dealing with Anxiety

It’s Easter Sunday and the kids are not very happy this year as they are not going to have any chocolate easter eggs. The kids are still down with cough and haven’t fully recovered so I am holding out on the chocolates for them. I hope they will be able to recover soon.

A few things have been causing me anxiety this week. It is not a good feeling and I hope that it doesn’t visit me that often. I don’t like playing the bad cop or have to be blunt to people who try to take advantage of me. I had some unpleasant encounters last week  with some bloggers while doing my first co-ordinated giveaway. It was a learning experience and it is just not worth being nice to some who don’t appreciate your effort. I am not calling out on the persons but have learned that it is not necessary to please everyone and sometimes people just don’t click and it’s best to part ways instead of lingering around with friction all over.  It’s my event and my rules and if there are any questions and things which are unclear about they should be voiced out before the event starts not when it was past the agreed on schedule. Anyway I treat it as a good lesson learned and move on. It’s no point being anxious to please everyone and inconvenience myself as a result of it.
