donah1007 I don’t have time to make you all happy. Go touch yourself....
I’m not as important to other people as I am to myself. I know that my friends and family want good things for me, but none of them are thoughtful enough to actually think about my happiness.
For example, my brother, his daughter (they both live with me), his new girlfriend, her 2 kids, my daughter and her boyfriend went out of town this weekend. They left Friday morning. They went to St. Louis (about 3 1/2 hours away).
No one thought to invite me. I half-jokingly said “what about me” and was told I could go. This was on Tuesday. I was scheduled to work all weekend. There was no way I could have gotten off work on such short notice.
Not only that, there’s no way I want to go on a trip as an afterthought. If I’m not invited from the beginning, I don’t want to go.
I try so hard to “be there” for everyone I know. Why won’t someone else think about me once in a while? Just once.
