Yes, I am done pushing myself into doing things because it's the right thing to do. I have been dealing with this for 14 years and I can't take no more!
I have always put everyone first before myself in my life all my life. And never thought twice about it. That is just me.
And I still put my children first, but as far as going places family functions, weddings, baby showers, husband's Christmas parties etc.
if I don't want to go or feel uncomfortable , I hit a point where if I don't want to go, I do not go!
And I feel all the better for it.
I just tell my husband and my family the truth, tell everyone I'm in a depression. I am not going to hide what is happening to me. It is what it is, It's hard enough I have to deal with it on my own let alone having to worry about what other people think.or hiding what's going on. I tried hiding it for too long. It is very liberating and I am so happy I hit this point. It may sound selfish but I feel so much better. besides I think it's about time I've become a little selfish, as this has never been a trait of mine.
I know all of you might think less of me but I'm sorry after 14 years I'm glad I hitvthis point.I hope none of you have to go through what I have.
My best to you all!
