Unfortunately, in this life there will be drama and there will be headaches. The good news is those people who bring that to your life, can come up to the doorstep, and you can promptly ask them to leave. What’s even better news? You can answer your fabulous door in an even more fabulous outfit! I’ve pulled two of my favorite faux-fur looks to share with you!
I think a faux-fur vest and coat are essentials for any lady’s closet! I love the look of this one ! It’s under 30 buks! You can’t beat that! I love pairing a great pop of color into any outfit, and a pink shoe is the perfect way to do it! These pointy toed sling backs are from Aldo, and are on repeat in my closet! I can’t resist a leopard faux-fur coat. I throw mine on for almost any occasion and instantly feel fabulous and chic! There are tons of styles, like this one, you can find!
Yesterday I had dinner with a friend of mine. Obviously, being friends we have been through the ups and downs of dating, heard the horror stories, rescued each other from bad dates, we’ve seen it all! I was asking her about the newest man in her life, and by the time we made it to an appetizer, I could tell he was bad news. He smelt like drama and a headache. Even through dinner, she discussed his pathetic attempts at being a decent human, and all I could say, in my best Simon Cowell voice, was “that’s a no”. He lies, he is lazy, he’s shady, the works.
Finally, at dessert, I asked her why in the world she was putting up with this mess of a situation. Her answer was beautifully honest. She simply said “I would rather put up with this bullshit than be alone”. I put my oreo cake down and paused. I totally understood. And I know millions, if not all, woman understand. The rest of the night I couldn’t help by think about “what is the line we draw for what we put up with”? I’m a firm believer in the saying that “what you put up with is what you will end up with”. But don’t we all find ourselves putting up with people’s crappy behavior on some level? The better question – What is the level of grace we should give? Is there a level? I know God has given me a heaping amount of Grace, and so have the loved ones in my life.
Is putting up with drama and headaches living a life that speaks to God’s unwavering love and grace, or is putting up with drama and headaches how we drive ourselves crazy? I don’t know where to draw this line with people and relationships. I know I have ended friendships because the drama outweighed the positive impact on my life. I’ve ended relationships and blocked numbers because of someone not treating me the way I deserved. However, at the end of the day, I want to give out more Grace and Love than I turn away, even if that means taking in some nasty smells. I don’t know if God has a policy of turning people away from his door, but I doubt it.
More Grace, Less Drama And maybe buy some Febreeze.
