Sometimes things just seem calculated to wear us down………
The endless supply of bills……….
Medication not covered by insurance so another $600 went on the credit card that is maxed and no way to catch up….
People who seek out drama or a juicy story but do nothing to help when asked….
People who have an opportunity to say Thank You when someone does something for them, but don’t because they never had to before……
Fighting with my spouse about money………
Favoritism at work………
Power-Savory and Money-Hungry people………..there are real people with no power to help themselves and a tiny bit of the cost of that international vacation and first class seats could make a difference in a family’s life.
Fighting with the Tax Man to give them your money to keep from losing your home and them preferring to run it through mediation which causes more time, money, anxiety, and fear.
Frankly, I think we have enough fearful, anxiety and panic-driven, depressed, broke, and homeless people!
People that cannot get insurance coverage or are unable to work full time because of their disability…….
Seeing and hearing what happens to people being denied medical care….
Time limits that are not self-imposed for grief, rehab, loss, recovery….
and the clueless people who talk about “easy” ways one is supposed to keep going and “live each day as if it is your last.”
It makes me weary that some of the people who say live as each day is your last are not at risk for suicide and don’t fully understand those who are despondent, desperate and terrified.
Being told to be quiet……..then being presumed to be negative or aloof……
Doing someone a favor as they plead with you, and then, being told that a favor is “your choice” and that they did not ask for anything…….
Expecting people to grow up and get some respect for others and a willingness to learn or aid………
It makes me weary wanting to tell the truth to others who prefer dishonesty….
Asking someone who is specifically going to a store that you need something from and being told “You can get it yourself……”
Trying kindness and no one noticing…..
Would we be less weary if we did not have to argue, fight and scrabble for everything we have each day in trying to hold on to our homes. our families, our minds, and our souls?
What makes you weary?
