There are moments in life when something totally different bursts into the light. One of the first such moments for me was Fawlty Towers. We had almost accidentally changed channels when the scary, outlandish Basil Fawlty had made his first magical appearance. Basil was a real groundbreaker at the time, offensive yet irresistable.
I had the same experience with my first dramatic jolt watching the early Simpsons in a San Francisco movie theatre. Bart and Lisa, who had looked very different to how they do now, were having a belching competition. This was a view of sibling rivalry to which I had related. (I had never stood a chance against my brother). Then there was South Park-The characters had looked so cute, until one of them got on the bus and had started swearing at the bus driver. Somehow these moments are timeless. They were never quite acceptable. They will never be quiteacceptable and that is probably why they have endured.
I believe the same can be said of principles. They never quite fit in. They often shock when they first appear but in the end they last the distance.
I have drawn a line in the sand with my ex and his family. So far and no further or you will experience the consequences of your actions.
I am an INFJ when you finally push us too far, it is gonna hurt!
My ex and my son once had an encounter with what I assume what was a fellow INFJ in the supermarket.He had made an eerily accurate prediction. My ex had returned to me shocked. I wasn’t! I had similar concerns I remember at the time too.
I am not afraid to tackle even my own flesh and blood if I feel there is a problem!
