I want to be .......

   The strong one. I was once but it got lost along the way. I can't say for certain when but I remember feeling "why can't somebody do that for me" so I lost it then. If I want to be the strong one then I need to accept and understand truly what that entails.

   The loving one. I, like most people don't always consider the feelings of those closest. They're always there so they can be taken for granted and am then a little surprised when they don't respond. Those close should be getting the care and attention they need all of the time and not just when I feel in the mood to give it.

   The funny one. Thankfully I'm still that but let it be more so in the future.
   So there it is. That's who I want to be. It's not a long list. I need to put the effort in on the first item, I'm getting there with the second and fortunately for me my humour has managed to hang around during the doom and gloom season. There are other things I'd like but I kinda feel if those three are in place the rest will follow.

Onwards and upwards in the pursuit of happyness and fulfillment :-)

  1. I am tired of being thought of as the strong one in my family. I take care of everyone but no one takes care of me. It is all a facade anyways.

    I'd like to be thought of as funny, rather than serious. I join you in that one.
