“This is not what we agreed. You are not honoring your word.”
I spoke in a very calm, firm and strong voice to Emi. These words were not part of the speech I had in mind.
However, they were effective; she heard me.I had gone over to Emi’s place in order to say in person what I had already texted her: that I didn’t have the time to do what she was asking, that I wasn’t obliged to do things for her, and that she was not respecting me.
But again, she just ignored what I said. She insisted that I was the only one who could help her because I was single and had no kids. It made me really angry that she thought that I did not have anything else to do but be at her service.
I was about to lose control when my Inner Self, the deeper part of me that was paying attention to what was going on, saw the great opportunity to take over. That’s when those spontaneous words came out: “You are not honoring your word.”
Unknowingly, I had said the magic words.
For a few seconds there was silence in the room. Emi’s eyes were wide in astonishment.
All of a sudden, the discussion turned in a different direction and took on a different tone.”
