Having a 'bollocks to everything and everyone' day

Now, I'm not a martyr at all.....if/when I do something for someone, I do it because I want to and am happy to do it.  So how come I often feel like there's very little reciprocation, that what I want doesn't even enter other people's radars? 

I could go on but what's the point.

I am sorry for being miserable and self indulgent, that's not what this blog is supposed to be about.  I just wish that people would show a bit of consideration and do what I want for a change.  And not be made to feel totally unreasonable and 'hormonal' if I get upset about it.

  1. Oh dear! I know exactly how you feel. I think we are at that stage of our lives still, where we are so busy looking after children, husbands/partners and parents that occasionally it feels like you just want someone to do something purely for you once in a while!! I also hate the fact that if I want help, I have to ask, whereas I always seem to offer...... Unfortunately you may have to treat yourself to something nice. I know it's not the same, but it might help take the edge off your frustration? Sending you an empathetic hug! :)

  2. I agree with you wholeheartedly today. You've summed up exactly how I'm feeling. I'm sure I'll feel much calmer after Bake Off this evening. Hugs to you. X

  5. The shocked looks when I say No are wonderful. Why is it that there is never any thought of reciprocation. The last time I was asked to help a family member and I said, yes I can manage that but would you just.... they nearly died of shock and could not get away fast enough. Fill your boots, stomp and cuss, take time out for you and you alone. Let them get on with whatever. Hugs

  6. There's bound to be someone telling you " it's the time of the month/your age"! Which is just what you need to hear isn't it!!
    I find standing in the middle of nowhere and screaming loudly helps except then I end up with a sore throat!
    Take care of yourself and say Sod it to the rest for a while.

  7. As you can see, you are not alone.
    I go watch a film that I know will make me cry, helped along with a large glass of red. Then I think "RIGHT"! And get on with it.
