Kodiak Bear: Ferocity

This is the eighth in my ten bear-related Tarot spreads.

I think like most people, I can become the Kodiak bear if anyone threatens me, my boyfriend or my fur kids. I've been known to really get aggressive with anyone coming near my dogs in a questionable way. It's not always pretty and though I try to take the high road, it's hard to control. That's something I need to work on. Protect but don't lower yourself to a level where you'll regret something you do or say.

Do you know someone who is passive-aggressive? Yeegads, I cannot stand people like that! I have a neighbour who is giving me the cold shoulder because I told her I couldn't drive her around anymore. She was taking advantage of my generosity and it was starting to bother me.  So after two years of friendliness, I am no longer of use to her because I won't chauffeur her. Isn't that insane??? Makes you wonder about her integrity! Anyway, there are times when I just want to lash out at her because I don't deserve bad treatment at all. But again, that's something I need to control - but maybe for the wrong reasons! I want to keep peace while I live here, for MY comfort, not hers! I don't know how I'd react if she talked to me now though.

Why should she expect you to drive her around? You're not her bloody slave and she should realise that. Some people!

Thanks Terry...the whole situation is unbelievable...but she's the type who is always "the victim"...everything bad happens to her, everyone has been mean to her...I don't normally get to know neighbours, just my own preference, but she was really nice at first. Over the years she talked badly about every person in the village and we kind of grew weary of it, but she is in her 70's and just got a new puppy and I wanted to help out by driving her to the vet. But she nearly commanded it after that "I'll need you next Tuesday, same time, to drive me back for the next appointment". Not even a question! That was it for me! I think honestly we're better off not being friendly with neighbours, they always seem to want something from us! I was hurt and uncomfortable at first, but now I'm thankful that I don't feel pressure that she'll be wanting something from me all the time.

I turn into Mama Bear if you turn on my family or my pets...especially my son. Look out!! I think next time you are driving and you see her, honk and wave. And keep going.

Kidding!! That's cheeky....

But then again, who doesn't like a bit of cheek ;)
