Selfish People...

Thursday, May 24, 2012

I'm normally a very positive person! Unfortunately today, my very first post is more of a negative nature; but I've some things I must get off my chest and here is the best place I could think of to do so.

My husband and I are good people; caring and considerate. We both fill the role of 'family rock' for our 'blended families'. Lately those we 'help' have taken us for granted and I'm tired of it!

My whole life I've struggled with this 'issue' and at this point in my life I'm ready to say enough is enough!

It is beyond my comprehension how some people behave the way they do! With not so much as a single thought beyond their own selfish little lives. How shallow, boring and downright lonely that must feel.

I will not let these people change me but I will strive to be much more careful with the people in my life who take my good graces for granted.

Today, as I did my morning walk I tried to shed the bad feelings these last few weeks and days have left me with. As I said my general outlook and attitude is normally positive 'to a fault' and I hate feeling this way. Obviously I did not shed my bad feelings...it's going to take a few more morning walks, I think. But, I thought I'd try this also.

My goal for today is to 'park' these bad feelings here for the day and pick them back up in the morning, if needed.

Here's to a great evening at Charlotte Speed Street with my wonderful husband! Selfish people, be warned, your days are numbered in my book. When I'm done, I'm done!

    Thank you all for the supportive comments. I believe I am OVER IT! :) I just woke up but I'm sure I'll be inspired at some point today to say something a little more my style--positive and probably filled with humor and a dash of sarcasm!! :)

    Michelle, you suffer from the disease of 2. You have done 2 much for 2 many for 2 long. Time to start being one of the selfish people and doing things that are for you and only in YOUR own best interest. Sometimes the fish have to flounder in order to learn to swim.....let them flounder. Remind me to tell you about my recent payment to Unitil.

    Good for you!

    I park a lot of stuff in my blog posts. Writing really has been a great boon to the process and I just learned to how to post my food!

    It's nice having the positive support and intentions of millions of fellow Sparkies!

    Check out "The Countess" and her blog "I Quit"

    It might speak to you...

    you did right to "park" your frustrations here. Better that, than punishing yourselves with unhealthy food.
    Tough times will pass.

    at some point you have to stop helping others and make them do things on thier own no matter what sometimes you have to put yourself first
