I just feel resentful today. Toward everyone. First words from my husband's mouth was that someone with my parent's area code called at 7:30 and woke him. I didn't hear it. Turns out it was my mom. They have been on a trip out of country and I guess they just wanted to let me know they are safely back in the U.S., but 7:30 AM on a Sunday? Rude. So of course I need to ask kindly that they not call earlier than 9 AM. But I don't know how. I see that I fear confrontation more than I should. I am starting to learn something about myself... how I put myself last. I have a right to bring up phone call. I have a right to my happiness. Feeling resentful today. I don't want to hear about their fantastic trip. I am being selfish. I love them dearly and they have been nothing but supportive. I don't really know why I'm posting this here but I guess I just appreciate the support I get from those who understand. Feeling disconnected from friends too these days. All the emotions we go through witnessing our d kids can just taint every area of our life. I know that if my daughter was on a good path I would be excited to talk to my parents. How sad is that...and selfish? I want to learn to accept myself if I have a down day. Want to stop resenting others who don't get it. Want to be happy for others when their kids do well. Truth is I feel like everyone either braggs or complains about stupid things. I want to be less resentful so I can love myself and others and be truly happy to hear all the wonderful things in their lives. Hope one day I can do this .
