Miles and Years and I think I Finally Got It

Monday, April 19, 2010

Don't get me wrong, I have given lip service to having to be my own best friend and if you don't love and respect yourself, no one else will, and finally, we teach others how to treat us. The new credo: if you want my time, make it worth my while by spending some of yours with me. I have spent 2 weeks waiting to be made time for. And it didn't happen. I was thanked for making others lives easier and contributing to the ease of various things my kids wanted to do. After I passed the driving test (you'll be glad to know I am still a safe driver) I was allowed to use either car to pick up from nursery school and to buy groceries and gas. I was never asked what I wanted to do or if the plans for the fun things we were to do were okay, but it didn't matter because they never happened and it was my fault for not showing enough enthusiasm. Of course, it might also have something to do with going to Las Vegas for 5 days, dinner with a bunch of friends 1 day, drinking after dinner another day, a baseball game and friends over for a BBQ afterwards, leaving for another trip today, and working everyday. What I learned: I allow myself to be put at the bottom of the priority list despite being from out of town.

    Hope all is going well and you are having some fun and being put at the top of the list. Thank you for your comment on my blog post analogy about riding the SP Train. Hope you are on board and your ticket is punched. Keep sparking! emoticon emoticon

    I do the same thing and then I help people all the time and wonder, "What is wrong with me?" You are OK! You can do it!

    You passed your driver's test. Someday you need to have a family meeting and talk about priorities and how everybody including you needs to be heard.

    Sorry you were not considered while you were visiting friends in Vegas. I myself once went to the movies by myself while I was visiting friends in Palo Alto because I got bored sitting around. They got the hint and we started doing things.

    I guess I was a little more passive aggressive those days. Anyway, Be Happy!
