A Little zanie-ness

The musings of a brilliant mind (and a whole lot of day to day stuff that isn't quite so brilliant!)

Quote of the Day

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

This is so true, but why is it that when someone is kind, on a repeated basis, they are treated so poorly? Why do people view them as doormats to be walked on?

I am at the point where I don't want to help anymore because of the way people view me. I am tired of being used and abused. It is time to take care of me.

And surprise! People are resisting that effort. They are so used to me taking care of everyone else that the concept of me taking care of me is foreign.

Bottom line: I am tired. I hurt. I need to take care of me in order to be a better mother, wife, and person in general. I have taken steps to take care of me and it has not been an easy task. I have had to claw my way out of there. Yes, I know it sounds melodramatic but when someone fights you on every step, it feels like clawing.

I hope this process gets easier but somehow, I don't see that happening.
