It makes me feel bad and unliked, though I am soo trying not to take things personally anymore. I'm getting better at being more confident...I didn't have a Dad around telling me I was gorgeous and worth everything in the world growing up so I'd like to think I can blame some of it on that.
I've always felt like I can be friends with anybody, though I'm so sorry that I have been judgemental at times. I've also been judged and it...stinks.
I'm really not trying to compete with anybody (well except myself).
I'm just trying to blog about our life, our memories, and love sharing it with friends known and new friends never met, so nothing else should matter.
I try not to worry about comments but you know we all like 'em. You know you get a little excited, when you see a new e-mail, and when it's from Home Dep0t Garden Center, that big grin deflates.
I comment because I am truly interested. I love meeting new blogging friends; learning from, laughing with, being cooky with, sharing ups and downs with, getting great decorating or fashion ideas from, and definitely praying for and with.
But when someone, let's say, asks who wants a drink, then gives one to everyone who showed interest except for you, how would that make you feel? As another blog friend put it, I really don't mind so much but I would love to know the reason why. If you just think I'm not cool enough, then no problem. It almost seems blantant, but I could just be paranoid, it's not like that's never happened before. :) Hubby always says there was probably a good reason, but my mind always goes to the bad.
I totally understand that peeps aren't interested in every post written, don't get me wrong. Or that someone you've commented on doesn't recipricate. Everybody has different interests and/or lots of people to keep up with.
But I am truly thankful for ya'll who are so sweet and keep up with our crazy cooky family and who aren't judgemental. I want this to be fun and not worry about what people think.
I'll now get back to watch CSI with Hubs, drink my decaf non-fat tall pumpkin spice latte (someday I'll remember in what order to say that :)), and get a bowl of pb cup ice cream! 'Cause I need it. I normally question whether or not I want to drink 200 calories. The answer today was I need it, want it, going to get it and not care, he. AND I'm going to have ice cream too! Since I'm back to eating better again you know something is a little wrong when I eat lots and lots of sweets! They make me feel better and the kind words of my Hubby telling me that he loves me. Blog ya later peeps!
