Even though i could quite easily focus on all the catalogue of errors that have happened in my life i try and focus on the good parts.
This is extremely difficult at times when the 2 people you live with are quite negative.DD will always moan about herself,she will put down the way she looks the fact that she failed her driving test didn't achieve the grades she wanted in her AS levels and im continually trying to make her feel good about herself,She was off school for 3 months with her ankle and her teachers hardly sent her any work home so she tried to self study and catch up.I know year 13 will be better for her but at the moment shes all for throwing the towel in.
OH has got worse as hes got older with the negativity.He works blooming hard but vents all his anger at me (not physically) He moans when he has no work and the phone doesnt ring now he moans that hes busy and at present because of the dry weather hes working 7 days a week.He tells me i dont appreciate what hes doing,how on earth do you show this to someone.I never expect or ask him to do jobs at home,I cook and clean and work part time,I sort all his problems out and am a taxi service to all my children but because i dont broadcast what i do he thinks i do nothing.
I try and put across to him that life has dealt us enough cruel blows so why pick a fight over trivial things but this goes straight over the top of his head.
Today im going to do a customers ironing and then take DD to her nan and grandads to say hello and goodbye again,DD is off on her holidays again today this time with her girlfriends.All her washing is done from last holiday and ready to be packed for next one.OH and i are taking her to Gatwick again this evening and 2 of her friends.
So i leave you lovely people with this( how true this is) and a picture off my lovely little ladies.
When you feel positive, you can immediately think of many more things that you would like to do in comparison to when you feel negative. You can express felling happy in many ways. In contrast, when you feel sad or unhappy, it is hard to motivate yourself to do anything except think about your troubles.”
