Let Go of Your Gift

People need to let go of their gifts once they present them to intended recepients. 

“Does Klara like the sweater I gave her? Can you send me a picture? Can you send me another picture where she’s wearing a skirt with it or a dress? I remember she had this really cute green dress with horse appliques. That one would go great with my sweater. I need the photo for my knitting club. Oh, the green dress is too small? Can you put it in her just for a sec while you snap the photo? Can I come over and take the photo myself because the light should be right?”

I’m having heart palpitations whenever this person says, “I have a gift for you!” I know that this gift will be too much work for me.

    If your posting history is any indication, looks like you can’t deal with individuals, period.
