Want... Want... Want...

Tuesday, November 08, 2016

I am trying so hard to stop stressing. I was stress eating but now I have that under control. Why the stress? Well, I am finding that people only speak to me when they want to know something. Okay. So... DUH! Right? But I mean that they want to know something that would benefit themselves rather than have a meaning conversation. Pretty sad.

What ever happened to a meaningful conversation with an individual? It would be nice. It would really be nice. I would much rather have a conversation with someone than just answer questions because people are digging for information. It is like I am the buffer between them and another person. It isn't fair to me. I don't mind offering my opinion but now it has become uncomfortable and I am feeling used.

So now I have to make it stop. How? (thinking... thinking... thinking)

How about "Just ask (insert person's name here). I am sure he/she can answer that question."? Yep! That may actually work! It can't hurt to give it a try.

    I'm with you. I vow to act on those little thoughts that say talk to that person don't just keep moving. Stop and have meaningful human interactions.

    I think that's an excellent solution. I too always end up feeling used by those around me, and they get the benefit of my help, and I get Nada. To those that use...leave s alone, solve your own problems. I am like u, I miss a real conversation....
