I've have been thinking about relationships in my life and wish I could make some of them better. I feel like I have tried but maybe I haven't enough? I don't know. I guess I just wish people would see me for me and realize that I am a person and not just a person that is there when they need something. I try to not be that same way where I use people at my disposal. I feel like I am a very loving, accepting, caring person with not many enemies (at least I hope not). I know that I can work on being a better friend, sister, daughter, granddaughter, aunt etc but sometimes I wish that I could change people and I can't. 

I would do anything for anyone close to me and maybe someone I'm not extremely close to. I'm a people pleaser and that's not always the best way to be because I end up getting walked all over. I HATE confrontation with a passion....just ask anyone that knows me. If I think there is going to be confrontation with something I completely run in the opposite direction. I have gotten a little bit better because Robbie has helped me majorly with that but I still have a very long way to go. I don't know if that's why I have the problems I do with certain people because I never stand up for myself and I just bottle it up inside and just dream about what it would be like when I actually told someone what I thought. I don't know. 

How do you make your relationships stronger? Is it harder with some people verses others? Maybe I just need to continually pray that I will have those relationships strengthened but I honestly don't see them getting stronger....man I need to have an optimistic outlook.....Any advice???

I try to treat people the way I want to be treated. I have had to work on it. Pray about it and that will probably help you the most! Try to think of things to do for the people you want to have a stronger relationship with and do things for them to genuinely show them you care...just some things i have tried, I hope it helps!
