I have done it again…
Once more, I have opened myself up, offered too much of myself and once more, I have received little in return other than hurt and disappointment.
Will I ever learn?
Why do people suck others dry?
Are they Thoughtless? Depressed? Insecure? Selfish? Unaware?
Does it even matter?
What matters is that I somehow, (and I find this nigh on impossible), I somehow have to find a way to be me and also protect me. My natural leaning is towards helping people, listening, trying to be a support and of use to them. I need to find a way to continue to fulfil this inner need in me, whilst not losing myself in the process.
This is a challenge; one that I have faced and failed at many, many times already. But hey, that’s life I guess… Gotta pick myself up, put myself back together and begin afresh.
And next time, I must remember that advice they give you on airplanes…
Put on your own life jacket before you help others coz you can’t help anyone else if you are drowning yourself.
Wish me luck?
