Under threat of ugly activity, I spent all day yesterday terrified. Blood pressure through the roof, knot in the stomach, the whole bit.
This morning, perspective set in. I have no control over what anybody else does. Let me repeat that for my own sake: I can't control what another person does. I might do things that I believe are right - but they must be done solely for that reason, not because I believe they will have any influence on another's actions.
So, if the ugly happens - I can't stop it. All I can do is prepare for it before it does, and respond to it once it does. Fortunately I have an excellent net of wonderful friends who love me, and who I can fall back on any time I need.
Love you all!
