have their moments
When you look back on your life, so often you can say, “Wow! I’m so glad THAT happened or I would never have been able to enjoy THIS!” However, there are those times we look back and think, “Why?! Why?! Why did that have to happen to me?!”
I’m living the “Why?!” statement now.
- Tough luck.
Suck it up.
This too shall pass.
Keep your chin up.
Trust in God and give it all to him.
Tomorrow will be a better day.
All these things are for your experience.
Obviously, I’m not doing or believing in those statements much.
As I’m sure you are well aware, I have a strong faith in God, but if I am honest, I feel black listed, shunned and tortured. The only thing that has kept me alive is that faith because without it, I would have already been gone. There comes a point when there is just too much unhappiness, turmoil, anxiety and struggling. I keep feeling that I can not take even one more step.
It’s pathetic that I want to give up and quit after all I have been through and accomplished to this point. I try to dwell on the future, but it seems too overwhelming. I am taking the future in small morsels at this point. If I think too much about it, I start to feel panic.
I take the present one hour at a time unless I’m at work and then it is one minute at a time since I now hate my job. I’ve been betrayed and since I take it personally instead of just looking at it as “business,” I’m hurt. Really hurt. Crushed. I won’t ever put myself in that predicament again.
As the weekend ended, I was disappointed and hurt with my family. They know how I am suffering. They can see it when they look at me. They can feel it as they look around our home. They can hear it by the silence that seems to echo within the walls of our home. With my only goal being to put up a Christmas tree, no one wanted to help. Not only with the tree, but with anything else in the house.
I’m puzzled and confused.
Haven’t I always been there for them?
Don’t I always do things to keep the home moving without a hitch?
Will I get up again in the morning to go to work and put food on the table, clothes on their back, roof over their head and vehicles or gas under their feet?
Are all the things I do not appreciated?
Am I expected to give up all my life as a servant to their needs, whims and desires as if I exist only to make their life more pleasant?
So my home life is feeling like my work life and I’m not liking either one.
I’m at a true cross roads in my life. I’ve never had more knowledge in my head, talent, or qualities worthy of love and appreciation, yet I am so unhappy. It really is rather ridiculous and it even makes me angry.
All I know is that I don’t like the road I’m on and it won’t be long before I definitely get off of it – one way or the other – with or without anyone else. There is only so much pain that one person can take before they explode and disappear. I should know…I’ve been there and done that before and I didn’t give up.
I’m not the same person any more and I just don’t have the same drive to keep on plowing through a huge pile of manure and a mountain of rock. Something has got to change. Something has to let up on me. Something has to because I’m not going to stay puzzled for much longer.
Okay, that was a lot of typing without taking a breath.
(Asthma) Cough. Cough.
(Inhaler puffing noise.)
Hmmm…at least I’m not saying hooooo hooooo heeeee heeee. For those of you that don’t recognize the hoooo heeee thing – that’s the way the nurses tell you to breathe when you are in labor, having contractions and the baby is getting close to being delivered.
No, I’m not having a baby. That was simply my attempt at a little comic relief to help us move to the next lighter and happier topic.
With all that behind us for now, we can enjoy the celebration of my friends who send me love and hugs on a daily basis. They are a great group of women who know what matters most in this life and practice what they preach.
This is the weekly post where I spotlight my Rockin’ Friends who are the Top Nine active participants and loyal followers in my community! If you want to be mentioned here next week, then all it takes is to come in and start chatting with everyone in my community.
With a big thank you for their participation and friendship, here are the Rockin’ Friends this week in order of most participation —however, I’m changing it up a bit this week. I’m posting their pictures (beautiful women with lovely smiles) along with the names of all their blogs.
My community is all fixed up for Christmas with a festive wallpaper. In case you haven’t ever clicked over to see, I thought I would let you take a peek. When you come over, make sure you stop by THE DAILY CHAT and say “Hi!” because it is the place we all sit down and have a chat each day. Well, I’m assuming they are sitting down!!
This week the special spotlight is shining on Deb of Just Short of Crazy. Deb’s “About Me” is as follows:.
I started looking at Deb’s blog from the oldest to newest postings. Have you ever picked blueberries? Well, I loved reading Berry Picking & Alpaca’s. Cute animals too, but I know they will spit at you. That’s another story altogether.
Birthdays have always been a big deal to me, so I can remember when I too thought Oh. My. 40.
I couldn’t pass this one up because I’m a sucker for a Sunrise.
You will hear Deb’s excitement and a huge sigh of relief when you read So Proud
I really enjoyed Silk Tie Dyed Eggs! I love all that crafty stuff. However, I tried to blow eggs a few times and just imagine a moose blowing eggs. Yeah, I don’t think my eggs would look like Bev’s beautiful eggs.
You’re not going to find this stuff Blooming now, but it is nice to enjoy while the wind is howling outside.
Who could resist a post entitled Say Hello To My New Baby? I know Deb’s is tickled pink every day!
Since we do the same thing, I loved the post and especially the pictures in Strawberry Pickin’. I could almost smell the fields. If you ever get the chance to pick strawberries…take it! You’ll never forget the fragrant fruit wafting in the air and the taste of warm strawberries that were just picked ten seconds earlier. Yum!
There are also other posts that you won’t want to miss:
I’m so glad that I’ve been able to get to know Deb better since she has become active in my community and by reading her blog. Be sure to add Just Short of Crazy to your blogroll, but also come over and chat with Deb in my community.
