Getting Used to Disappointing People
Friday, September 24, 2010
Well, tonight I was supposed to go to dinner with the in-laws. That didn't happen. I had all my calories by my usual time today -- 4pm. My husband was really disappointed when I called him to tell him I didn't think I should go, and that maybe they should go without me, or we should have breakfast in the morning instead.
Lately I've found that I've had to disappoint people more and more frequently when it comes to social eating. One of the things I have tried to avoid for so long is disappointing people -- not just in this area. The older I get, however, the more I realize that it's just impossible to avoid disappointing people sometimes. You have to follow your own conscience, or your life will be the product of other people's priorities. I can't allow that.
