Why do we assume that people should know how to interpret our reactions without us telling them what we are feeling?
We tend to think that because we have an emotion that other people should pick up on that and empathize with us.
Do they really know what our reaction may have involved?
Should they question every emotion that we have?
Not every outburst should be followed by a what's wrong?
Say me for instance... If I am crying the last thing I want is for someone to either:
a. console me readily
b. ask me what's wrong
c. hug me
For me this show of concern only brings on an onslaught of more heart wrenching sobbing and it's almost out of control at this point and very hard to cease.
I need a minute to catch myself and regroup. A minute to get it all out. A minute all to myself.
If we want to be understood then we should be clear about our feelings and our intentions. Don't expect people to know what you are feeling or what you need without our desires being expressed to them.
The only way we can truly get what we expect from others is for us to be upfront and honest and let people know what we expect from them. It starts with trust, honesty and full disclosure! In my opinion~ Smooches KLJ
When I grow up I don't think of what my life entails
I think of my parents always having my back
I think that I will live life and they will live on forever...
What I don't think about is the fact that when I grow up, my parents continue to grow too.
What I don't think about is the fact that when I grow up, I will now have to have their backs.
What I don't think about is the fact that I will lose them, that is inevitable (the circle of life).
What I don't ever seem to stop and think about is that they are growing older as am I.
They too will leave me here to fend for myself with all of their teachings.
To look after them as they have looked after me for so many years.
To be there for them as they have been there for me for so many years.
To care for me as they have been caring for me for so many years.
When you grow up remember that it is our duty as the children to now become the parents, and parent our parents as they become the children that we have to care for like they cared for us.
Please cherish and care for your parents as they become older~it is our duty to them as they have made many sacrifices for us to live our lives as maturely as we can come to terms with!
For today, I woke up with a late start and I am getting ready to just get out there.
I think I am going to take a drive over to the new farmers market. Going to meet with a friend and catch up on old times with a quick bite. I may even squeeze in a movie if I don't get too tired from all that sun out there.
Remember your most important part of your outfit today will be that killer smile.
For the most part of this week I've been posting on FB & Twitter about making someone smile. Bringing a smile to someone's lips/face can be the one thing that can turn their entire day/world around. Whenever you have the ability/chance to make someone smile...Please go ahead and take advantage of that moment.
We don't know just how much we affect a person's well-being when we bring some good vibes to the table.
Smooches & Smiles to you all! 1Love KLJ
Inspire. Motivate. Enrich. Bless. Cherish. Love.
