The episode this week surrounded the Atkins Sisters gathering together with their Pastor’s wife. Last week, Erica and Tina had to deal with tons of drama. It was a long list of coping with with the “Goo Goo’s styling/Mitch Melt down”, financial disaster and a pregnancy filled worries that lead to this week’s episode of sisterly bonding. Erica and Tina decided that all the Atkins sisters would go on a mini trip. Just for fun, Erica arranged a “pole dancing” class. Tina wanted no part of it.. The resulting conversation was entertaining and truthful. In addition, Tina’s potential pregnancy loomed in the background.
There were two lessons this week.
The first lesson was that standing your ground sometimes means that others will be angry, but they will understand. Tina choosing not to take the poll dancing class was both courageous and brave. It showed that even as adults when you are presented with something that you are uncomfortable doing you still have the power to say no. Tina could have caved to the pressure of her sisters joking and chiding, but she chose to take the stand and refuse. She explained herself and moved on.
The second less0n is that no matter how hard you may plan, life has other plans. Tina’s discovery of her pending pregnancy took a road that no one was expecting. Watching Tina completely freak out was an affirmation that everyone is entitled to the freak out moment. It’s what you do after the freak out moment that makes the difference
