This is being written off the cuff, so bear with me.
I don’t have a lot of time for blogging this month, so this will be brief. I’m feeling emotional and confused about humans today.
I like to be there for those I love. If they need something, I want to take care of them. The thing is, I have two kinds of people in my life; those who are too proud to accept my help even if we were the last two on earth, and those who will accept my help, plus drain me of every ounce of energy I have left in order to cater to their needs.
As I’ve mentioned before on my blog, I’m a balance kinda girl. I feel completely out of kilter when things go too far one way or the other. So, this kind of stuff throws me for a loop.
I’m of the belief that we must both give and receive in order to have a balanced, productive and successful life. When we’re in need, we must be willing to accept help from others until we can get back on our own two feet. The latter is important, because once we’re on our own two feet, we must be responsible for ourselves. In another instance, if someone fills their life up with way too many activities and expects others to help take over some of them, whose fault is that?
I’m feeling frustrated at this point, because I want to help and my help isn’t being accepted. I’m left out and feel helpless. On the other hand, I’m supposed to feel guilty (but don’t) for not offering my help in a chaotic life that wasn’t created by me.
Relationships can certainly be a conundrum sometimes.
Hope you’re all having a wonderful week and a happy hump day.
Do you have either of these kinds of people in your life? Those who won’t accept your help? Those who are a bottomless pit of need?
