Brrrrrr....


If one more person tells me I am "cold", I swear---I will scream. LOUDLY. I have been labeled this way all of my adult life, and it's time to put that theory to rest, at least in my own head,(unless of course you all agree) since I cannot control what others believe me to be. "A tough nut to crack." , "Balls the size of Texas." , just a plain old "scary bitch". Really? Really?

Is this how I come across to you all? Be honest, I can take it...and so what if I scream, you all won't hear me. I know that most of you don't know me IRL, but what you do know is the real me. The inside me. The me that holds little back, my thoughts, my prayers, my fears. Am I cold?

Truth time. I need to know. And thank you. :)

How could any of us think of you as 'cold'? That thought would never enter my mind. Just shows that people don't take the time to know you.

NOT AT ALL!!!! I love you Aunt Jamie, and I don't think you're mean at all! I've been called a few of those names before too, and usually it's when somebody doesn't like the reality of the situation and wants to put the blame on someone else.

I think you're amazing!!! & I love you!!! Keep smiling & ignore the Negative Nellies. (They don't know what they're talking about!)

BIG HUGS!!! XOXO

You are loving, caring and compassionate! However, we can ALL be cold if we want to and whoever said that about you needs to get a cold shoulder from you. The nerve of them! Just consider the source and forget it. Big hugs, dear friend. xo

Jamie, you are a woman who speaks her mind and gives her opinions and beliefs with no holds barred. I am the same way, have been called the same insulting names. We are real people, not people who hide behind facades and untruths. You are a strong, independent woman who knows what she believes and is not afraid to say it. Cold? NO!! Balls the size of Texas....huuraahhhh!!!!

Dearest Jamie,
I read this post and I couldn't decide whether I felt angry or wanted to cry. A story too familiar to me. I've been called that so many times too. And it's so far from the truth... just as it is with you. If anything, we are more sensitive than usual, and so we tend to wrap ourselves up in safe coverings that appear to others as being cold and hard. My own father said I must not have cared to much when he had the surgery for his aneurysm because I didn't cry. At the time I was trying to be the strong one as my younger sister was in a state of total hysteria upsetting him greatly. I am often referred to as "The Queen B" or some such, simply because, like you, I take no prisoners. If something needs to be said or done... I do it! That doesn't mean I am uncaring or unfeeling or cold. I KNOW how much you care, you were the most supportive person I could have imagined when I was struggling so hard to get thru the darkest days of my life. Look at all you've gone thru for and with your kids, and your ex, and God knows how many more folks we don't even know about here. Jamie, cold? I have to laugh at that one. Don't take such crap to heart, Dear Friend. You know it isn't true. Let them think what they want. It sounds like this came from someone who was bitter or wasn't getting their way. You are a blessing and a treasure to me, an inspiration in every way, and I hope you never change even one tiny bit! We may appear tough on the outside be we have marshmallow hearts! :-)

OMG, I could have posted this. I often get the bad rep because I speak the truth and most people simply don't want to hear it. But when I am needed, I am there.
