More than usual

Have you become all of your friends ‘rock’ so to speak, have you somehow mysteriously acquired the mantle of agony aunt/uncle? Enough problems of your own to deal with but you care enough to stop whatever it is you’re doing to listen or help in anyway you can?

I know, I know..Its draining, putting others needs before your own..
But it puts a smile on your face to see the smiles on their faces.. That’s reward enough (Right!!)

What about you?

Maybe you think you’re so well suited to the job, that you’ll do it yourself..
After all, if they can’t look after themselves, there’s not much hope of them being able to help with whatever’s going on in your head..

Do you find this makes you a little intolerant at times?

You do..!!!!


Where was I...
Looking in the mirror, LoL

i used to do this a lot. but then i realised that my advice had no effect unless they had already made up their minds to do what i suggested, before i suggested it. i also realised i had a habit of playing "rescuer" while sinking, so i withdrew from such relationships. this means i have a lot less friends, but i am a lot happier as i don't stress myself and worry so much on my friends' behalf. however, if my friends need it, i will talk it thru with them, act as a sounding board so they can figure out a solution they are happy with...

HEYSPESHK: You know it! I've got them coming out my ears (bless) this place is where I've found I can talk about everything.. Things I've never cared to mention, things I normally wouldn't want to.

HEYFREELOVE: WOW! That's it exactly! I had also made the same changes as you. And I am less stressed though close friends never let up sometimes.

PS. I don't know if I should say but I've been admiring your smalls from afar for a little while now "Emergency 999" I can't believe they came to visit... or that I told you "LoL"
