The whole... they don't like me. Oooh, Ooh, let me jump through hoops! Do they like me now?? How about now?? Now?? Hmmm.... Let me try harder. Do they like me yet? Why not? Why, Why, Why, WHY???
Now....I'm over that crap.
Of course I want people to like me - who doesn't?
Truth be told... I'm not everyone's cup of tea. I'm blunt. If I have something to say, I say it. I don't sugar coat it. Though everyone knows where they stand with me, not everyone appreciates it. Hmpf. Let me go get an invisible tissue to wipe away my non-existent tears.
I know that sounds very harsh and unfeeling. I'm not that way at all.
If you've been following me both on here & on my page, you know that I'm a big ol mush!
I've come to a point in my life where I understand that not everyone is going to think I'm all that & a bag of chips. Shocking, right??
|You don't like me? :(|
I have taken friendship breaks from some folks from time to time. Not necessarily ending the friendship - but taking a step back out of it. Seeing what things really are.
Relationships change, people change. Sometimes it's for the better, other's not.
Maybe it's that I've gotten older & have a lower tolerance for b/s. Maybe I'm wiser? Who knows. I feel I've come to a place that when it comes to me & mine I don't put up with any nonsense.
Truth - people come into your life at different times for different reasons.
Just because they walk out at one time doesn't necessarily mean they won't walk back in at another, nor are they guaranteed to ever walk back in. That's OK too.
While I am a "pleaser" by nature, I know it's not my direct responsibility to cater to each and every individual on the planet. Nor do I need to jump through hoops to make someone like me. Either they do or the don't. Their loss if the don't.
Yeah... I know - that's a bit self promoting, but I'd rather have a positive, loving self image than a reflection of something I'm not proud of because I'm trying to fit into someone else's perfect little mold.
What it really comes down to is that you can't please all the people all the time. All you can do is do right by others & right by yourself.
Give and expect respect.
Give for the joy of giving and you'll never be disappointed. If you give expecting something in return, you may not achieve your desired results.
I don't expect the world to bow down at my feet.
I am who I am, and I'm good with me.
Are you good with you?
Lots of love & hugs!
