Is it just me? - November 18th 2011, 04:13 AM

Basically this is what's up..
Everytime I ask Any one in my faimly to do something for me they can't find time. For example today I asked for anyone to take me to the store and none of them could find time.. Suddenly they remembered that they need something 30 minute drive to go somewhere and they immediately found time. Wht in the world!!! Really??!!! My mom promised to do like 3 different things for me in the past year and did NONE of them. Three things is that so hard I confronted them about it and they said oh well can't you see we're busy.. Like no way .. Ur busy for me but not for yourself or anyone else in the faimly but ME!!! sorry for rambling and thanks for listening.

I'm sorry your family is being frustrating right now. Have you taken the time to have a calm conversation with them? Sometimes, being calm can have a much bigger impact than fighting. It will show them your maturity. Don't be accusatory, but let your parents know that you're having a hard time understanding why they can never find time for you, but always find time for themselves. Remind them that you don't ask for much, so when you do, it would be greatly appreciated if they honored that. In return, maybe you could do an extra chore or two? I know it's not ideal, but compromise is a great problem-solver. Best of luck!

wanderlust consumed her;
foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

I'm sorry that your family treats you like that.

It really is a luxury to have people have free time for you. Are you dating someone right now? Perhaps you can find a significant other that is willing to set aside time for you. One person is all it takes.

But if I were in your shoes, I would try to be more independent so that I wouldn't have the expectation for others to help me. It saves a lot of disappointment.

I hope that helped,
