Why, why, why?

Why, whenever I go out, do I worry if I'm going to get a parking space.

Why do I think that the garden should look perfect all the time.

Why do I want to please everyone all of the time.

Why can't I say "no".

Why do I always think that everyone else is better than me.

Why do I always think that I'm not very clever.

Why do I feel guilty if I sit down during the day to just read a book.

Why can't I have lovely, straight hair.

Why can't I be more patient.

Why don't I enjoy New Years Eve.

You made me think of my wife this morning. If there is one or two dishes she has to wash them, if there is towels in the basket, even though we have a large amount to use, she has to wash them. She thinks the house needs cleaning when it really is neat and tidy. She worries way too much about stuff that really doesn't rate that much thought. Why don't you have a wonderful day.

Odie - Perhaps it's a "woman" thing then! I really am trying not to stress too much about the little things - especially with all these postings that I write about, saying what is really important in our lives! Old habits die hard, I guess.

It's hard not to think about the "Why's", isn't it?? But, try not to let them get you down. My husband is a worrier and I am constantly trying to get him to RELAX and enjoy the moment that he is in. Life is WAY too short to focus so much on the "Why's" and the "What if's". Get out today and enjoy your day! Sending you ((HUGSS)) from across the pond! :)

Pour yourself a glass of sherry and put your feet up with a good book - life is too short, although I agree with the straight hair bit ;)

You're so obviously right Becky. Snowing heavily today, but I have my little grandson here, so we are having fun!! Have a good weekend.

Gawgus things - just opening that bottle of sherry now!

I think I've wondered quite a few of these myself. I'm not really the type that feels the need to please everyone though. I've just never been that way. It may sound selfish but MOSTLY everything I do is because I want to. But I do feel like I can't just sit and relax until everything is done and by that time, I have run out of time.

I don't know why you feel those things because I think you're just about the sweetest most thougtful woman I know.

You sound like a classic pleaser, Thisisme. You try to be all things to all people. Believe me, you won't lose anybody's love or respect if you learn to set reasonable limits and boundaries, take care of your own needs (including the need for some "me" time), and just say "no" occasionally.

Thisisme said...

Thanks Bouncin'Barb. Your comment has made my day!!

Thisisme said...

Hi Shady. Think you've got it in one there, about the classic pleaser. Thank you for your wise comments.

Thisisme said...

Jumble = thanks for your comment. Good to hear from you, as always.

Shady Del Knight said...

caterpillar said...

Why, why, why are you worrying so much...:)
I know how it feels, a few points up there are things I keep asking myself...You are someone really nice...so please stay that way...

Thisisme said...

Thank you cat! Must learn to just C H I L L !!

Thisisme said...

Teresa - it's funny about the hair, isn't it?! If you've got curly, you want straight; and if you have straight, you want curly!!
