You often minimize your needs to make a situation more pleasant for someone else. However, you could go overboard today, trying to fix an emotional melodrama that really isn't your responsibility. Nosing around in other people's affairs rarely helps anyone, but you can still be a true friend by listening and showing your support. Caring for those you love is wonderful as long as you remember to take care of yourself, too.
This is soooo true for me.
I spend or shall I say spent ( a work in progress of course) a lot of time and energy trying NOT to be a certain person that I think I have lost who I am.
I don't want to be a bad Mom.
I don't want to be a nagging, bitchy, underemployed, bad wife.
I don't want to be this, that or the other.
So who exactly am I again?
I am a good Mom.
I am a good friend.
I am a good employee.
I am a rescuer.
I am the one who gets shit done.
I am the person who will give you the last of whatever I have if you need it.
I am silly, crazy, funny and a scatter brain.
I don't want to ask you for anything. I want you to like me but think most people don't. I never think I am doing a good enough job. I do not think I am beautiful but hope someone out there does.
I want to believe you when you tell me that I am.
I don't know where this came from today but it is what swirls around my brain on any given day.
Crazy should maybe moved to the top of that list.
