It’s Not Your Job to Make Everyone Else Comfortable

    Well AudreyJoJo, thank you for this. We are definitely from the same gene pool. Introvert plus here, love one on ones, but dread groups, therefore not involved in them. conversationally inept feels right one and for heavens sake i’m 76. learning to live with who I am through all the changes and challenges of living is frequently daunting but I am finally comfortable with me. I can change as circumstances require, the outgoing director of nursing, consultant, speaker to organizations, and the quiet, content quilter with a quiet content companion. the only thing missing is life is a DOG. Someone would have a kinitty fit if that happened. So hang in there girl. we are nurturers, we take care of others, so they are comfortable. just don’t forget to take care of yourself too. some of us have to learn THAT lesson late in life. Love you Dear Girl, sorry I missed your wedding but the pics were wonderful.

    So…the ‘pleaser diseaser’…rampant! And it’s wrapped up in all of what you shared…and probably another layer or 40. Truth. We do all have it at some level. The willingness to talk openly about it? That’s key and so cool!! And like every ‘notice’…it pulls on a new muscle to flex…use…get in shape. Isn’t it so much easier to skip the gym? Yet, so so worth the strain and ache of pushing yourself to learn this now…with grace and patience and maybe even some set backs. And just like exercise…it’s only a habit when you keep doing it. Love this. Julie B
