Its all relative..

.. been thinking a bit today about how people react to things we say. We may think we are being funny and yet we may unintentional upset or offend. Someone said something to me today that I know was said in jest. But because I am sensitive to that persons opinion of me it really stung! I know that what they are implying with there 'joke' isn't true and yet I still spent the rest of my afternoon running around determined to prove them wrong. Sad. How old do I have to get before others peoples opinions of me stops being so important. I spend my life trying to please people who to be quite honest will never be pleased. And in focusing on them I neglect those that DO care. Most of the time I come across as a strong confident woman ... and yet most of the time I feel like a 13 year old girl, still confused about who I am and screaming LOOK AT ME, NOTICE ME,LOVE ME!


  1. You are not alone in feeling this way at all. I'm very familiar with taking what people say to heart when I know I shouldn't. At least not everything. I'm not sure there is a point when we stop worrying about what others think, if there is, then I haven't found it yet.

    I love reading your blog and have nominated you for the "Versatile Blogger Award!"

    To find out more and to see the announcement:

  4. I am SO like that. My fee-fees get hurt over the stupidest things. I wish I wasn't so sensitive too!
