It is about paying attention to instincts when it comes to both people and situations.
Built In Babysitters
Those who would send their children to you repeatedly without bothering to ask if it was okay first. They act as if you run a daycare with a revolving door, that is free. They also feel free to send extra children for you to watch when they have guests without bothering to ask you first. They have no desires to teach their children to clean up behind themselves or not to break things.
These are people that you do not need in your lives. They are a type of freeloader.
When you have someone telling you repeatedly what their significant other thinks of you when said significant other has repeatedly denied it when asked point blank can be disorienting. Even more disorienting is when you find out that it's all true but only one of them was honest enough to tell you what the other really thought of you. It is in times like this that you learn just who in your life is not what they appear to be. Unfortunately there
It is not always pleasant when they go from telling you that they think a lot of you and the things that you do for them just to start telling you that you do not measure up in a million different ways. They start by making jokes that they either don't realize or don't care aren't funny to you.
The jokes are insulting, and they think it's all fun and games when you snap back at them instead of crying like you actually want to do. Then there is the other half that you don't snap back at when they offend you because you don't want to hurt them the way they hurt you and it is taken the wrong way.
When it comes to people there are those who, like me, are better with solitude. It means that we do best left to our own devices without having to be forced into social interactions. There are things that bring everyone simple pleasures and relaxing is one of them.
Leaving Them Behind
Both possessions and people are left in the past when you learn how to prioritize your well being above everything else. You see sanity and health are far more important to than anyone or anything else in this life.
Do you ever ignore your first instinct about people just to discover you shouldn't have? Are you willing to cut ties for your sanity and your health?
