Respect

I am an adult who had something incredibly huge, severe, and life-changing happen.  I don’t think some people in my life get that.  This has been absolutely devastating.  Because of this happening to me, there needs to be a lot of changes in my life and the way I’m dealt with by others.  If you have a loved one that gets sick, they’re probably going to tell you all kinds of things like “I don’t like that” or “don’t touch me there.”  FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, respect their wishes.  You should be respectful of someone’s wishes like that anyway, even if your loved one is perfectly healthy.  But after something like this, it should go without saying.  For some people in my life it did not go without saying.  It didn’t go with saying for some people.

  1. So….you mean, when Zack says, “stop talking please, too many questions.” I should listen to him? haha okay okay. I get it!

    • Haha! Yeah, I’m thinking at that point you should probably just shut up. 🙂

      • I’m learning. slow and steady! I have had the same thoughts…”shut up, brooke, and give the poor guy what he wants.” But I also wrestle with getting my feelings hurt. And he knows and still tries to be sensitive. Earlier he told me to stop talking, then a few minutes later he said “come here, I want to hug you.” A peace offering. 🙂 But everything he says is so monotone, because his voice is messed up, it’s really hard to tell when he is being nice or mean. I try to keep that in mind.

  2. I got a lot of people giving me what THEY wanted, not what I wanted, asked for….and finally demanded. Dealing with my difficult people made my recovery much more challenging, until I finally cut all the difficult people loose. Then I got exactly what I wanted, how I wanted it…and I saw a dramatic improvement in my recovery :).

  3. You’ve got the best posts for eliciting comments.

    • That’s because I don’t give a shit anymore so I write about all the stuff that has caused me the most aggravation. Apparently, a lot of people out there have the same frustrations.

Say things.................
