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. 3 years ago
I’m on vacation this week in Orlando. My daughter didn’t want to go to the same amusement parks as me. I’m fine with that. She’s doing her thing and I’m doing mine. We spent 1 day at a park together. We’re going to the beach together tomorrow. I’m enjoying doing what I want to do. She’s enjoying her time too. 3 years ago
putting myself first got me stranded in a disabled vehicle in a thunderstorm. I had to find my own way home.

I had plans to spend the day with my aunt and my best friend. We were going to spend the day fishing. It was cold and rainy when I woke up so I decided to relax at home. I read a little then I took a nap. I woke up and read a little more, then I napped again.
I’m going to take it easy today and enjoy some peace and quiet. 3 years ago
my friend wanted me to come over. I wanted to go, but I was too tired. I needed to come home and sleep. I did what was best for my body, which was come home to sleep. 3 years ago
but I’m making this a priority
I’m going to do what I want and not explain myself 3 years ago
