Vulnerability


It is something I HATE working on but I still do it.
I do not like intentionally letting people know what hurts me the most. Being taken advantage of is not the business. However, I do not build walls to see who will tear them down. I would be expecting far more from others than I would be giving.
It is not fair for me to punish people who WANT to know me because someone else did not amount to shit. I have grown to accept that it IS a part of life. People come and go. Learning how to let go is sometimes the difficult part. Not, refusing to feel. That is only a mind game we play with ourselves.
We eventually lose and that is when it hurts even more. That game will wear anyone out. Leaving us in a “why me” state of mind. Why you? Why not? Sometimes we get these thoughts in our heads that we are above normal human being stuff. I attribute it mainly to ego. 
How we bounce back from effed up shat and people, is the determining factor of how well we deal with LIFE. There are some things I have not bounced back from. I acknowledge them when they come up. One day, I will get over them. Until then, I allow myself vulnerable moments. I write.

CG - I feel like it becomes difficult to treat people in a manner that is acceptable to them sometimes due to expectations. I'm part of that group that has expectations for people who want to be close to me. So disappointment happens, from time to time. Such is life, you know? :-)

The Mane Topic - I'm trying to do better about updating this blog. I need to put my "follow" widget back on here. I guess you have to add me to your reading list the old fashion way LOL and FYI, I haven't added anyone to mine in at least 2 yrs. I haven't singled you out. You know I'm on tumblr 24/7 but I'll follow you today though!

Be fair & civil in your commenting. If you can't manage that...well be unfair & rude and I'll respond. Yes, those are your only two options :)
