You ever find yourself having a viewpoint or attitude you didn’t expect from yourself? I have, and not just once.
Before my divorce I found myself with a demeanor and personality that was not mine and once I realised that I became very aware of my surroundings and started paying much more attention to the people I had surrounded myself with.
I shocked myself back into reality and the me I knew and quickly made history of that situation. A few short years later I saw myself on a weak day in the mirror and was saddened by who I saw there.
When you’re a single mother or even just single if you’re like me and don’t have a lot in common with the chics in the office and not a lot of close friends you can get lonely and start feeling pretty sorry for yourself, I recognized that pity me attitude and had to get rid of that with a quickness.
We have all lost ourselves at some point because we were busy trying to be somebody for someone. Is it ever worth it?
The hardest thing for me to see is unhappiness, and misery. I fail to understand why so many people stay miserable in relationships, be them friendships, family or intimate.
Life is far too short to spend it unhappily, staying in situations for reasons other than happiness and mutual respect seems so wasteful. How do you stay positive? How do you keep from losing yourself?
