I know I’m not the only one wondering this in the past week…
Why is it that the people you expect to share in your triumphs and be happy for you are the ones who rarely do/are?
Is it jealousy?
Do they in fact not care?
Are they embarrassed of you?
Are they purely in your life for their own benefit?
I mean honestly now, what is it?
I am going through a phase where I am looking very carefully at relationships and wondering – WHY?
There are those who seem to be congratulatory and supportive behind the scenes, but when it comes to the shove their motive was to shut you up.
Its like the people who say “oh now you’ll talk about other things besides your kids” when you go back to work after having babies. AND its always the ones who don’t have kids who tend to be the most big mouthed about the mums who have pride in their kids.
*shakes head* no wonder relationships end.
This year has been busy and also exciting for me, and I’ve made changes in my life to incorporate offers to give me a “self made” career. Its a load of work and it takes some skill to juggle chores so that every day runs smoothly.
I could go on all day about hiccups, and the constant issues surfacing as I now “fight” to get a better out come for my son with the problems he has with bullying. If children came with remotes so you could fast forward through homework I’d be set. *laughs* if I could fast forward though my health issues too…
Sounds like I need a lesson from the movie “Click” doesn’t it?
I am keeping my finger on the pulse of animal welfare, and social networking, and learning a lot too. I tweet, I pin, I facebook and now I hear that Linkedin is another forum I should be looking into.
And then there are the things I keep private.
So, when I say I’m busy I really am.
This brings me back to the point I am trying to make.
With all this going on you really expect to have people who have become your “support system”, to be understanding, to share woes, to click SHARE on posts you have put a lot of time and effort into… *rolls eyes* they don’t even share the Friday Funny Jokes.
Instead, you get lectured because you aren’t doing this and that, or excluded out right because you are busy.
I don’t know if its because you are the metaphorical tin man that people think you also have no heart.
On the subject of sharing, are they embarrassed that I have a past, and have chosen to speak out about it?
Or are my kids their only point of interest, so being part of my support system has no value to them?
Have relationships become all give and no take?
I just don’t get it. *BIG flashback*
Resorting to being the silent partner in a somewhat one sided relationship seems to be the order of the day, and you carry on regardless.
So, what is it? I mean I’m not asking for miracles here….
