Baby Bear is a Honey Badger in Disguise, Watch Out!

My nature is to be fairly passive and agreeable. 
That is, unless you mess with MY people. 
Then, the gloves come off and you can expect to see the Mama Bear side of me.

Forget just Mama Bear.  
Add Papa Bear and Baby Bear to the mix, 
and watch out because we all know the Honey Badger of the family is Baby Bear!

Throughout life I’ve come across a few, let’s call them 'Goldilocks'.
Sauntering into my life; using things that are not theirs; feeling they have the right to trample around my personal space and take what they want.  
And just like Goldilocks, they don’t seem to think there is a problem with breaking and entering.

I give people the benefit of the doubt, to a fault.
I overanalyze the situation; try to find out how I might have made a mistake and take on the brunt of fault for other’s actions.

Maybe I made the bed look too comfy or the porridge too scrumptious.
They cannot possibly have the nerve to have invaded our space. 
Especially when everyone thinks they are sooooo nice.

Mama Bear needs a little strength, she is tired.
Come join me Papa Bear!
Maybe things did happen but I can let it go - let it roll off my shoulders.
It hurts but my shoulders are flexible, I can take it in the name of peace and kindness.

*Enter Baby Bear*
Hell no!
You do not deserve this and none of it was your fault!
Step up and kick Goldilocks to the curb!
She is a manic, selfish kleptomaniac!

So all you fairy tale readers, I am not a crazy, jealous lunatic for my reactions to Goldilocks.  
In fact, if these Goldilocks think they could get away with their bad behavior without retribution,
they are the crazy ones.
Goldilocks may seem lovely; sweet and innocent 
but that does not mean she cannot have done something wrong.

Standing up for MY people makes me a strong; intelligent; take no crap kind of person.  
I don’t know about you but I respect people like that.

Sure, call me crazy for thinking an entire bear family lives in my head;.
Cuckoo, cuckoo
But don’t’ call me crazy for knowing you have done something wrong
and making sure you know I know the truth of your intentions.

The saying ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’ holds true Goldilocks.  
Unless you want a family of bears after you, 
keep your stinky sticky fingers and lock picking skills to yourself.

And just in case you’ve forgotten, Honey Badger just don’t care

so don’t underestimate the power of Baby Bear.
