We all say we are done with people or situations at some point in our time. But I really am. I am the kind of person that goes above and beyond. All of the time. For people who I am cool with, my ex sister-in-law’s kid, for pretty much everyone in my life.
But don’t you think that the more you do for some people, the more they take you for granted? So, I have decided I am done. I am not going out of my way for people anymore. I am going to pull back a lot. I will not send continuous texts to see if people are coming to my kid’s play, or if they want to meet up for a winery, etc.
I have worked hard on my health and fitness this year. I have tried to work on my relationship with God as well. So, now I am going to take a HUGE step back and look at my relationships with people. In doing that, I can make more time to earn money and more time to see who is there for me.
Sound crazy? Read Maximize the Moment by T.D. Jakes. He lays it on the line about people. Just because someone is Christian doesn’t mean they have to be a doormat for people. I would read the book, but I lent it to someone and never got it back.:) See, what I mean about my crappy friends?
Anyway, I am still thankful and blessed and focusing on positive things. Sometimes narrowing one’s scope in life can really bring a lot of revelation. So, hopefully my path will be revealed during my hiatus from Facebook and from people in general, except of course my close family and cat:)
Have a blessed Saturday and a restful Sunday!
