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???
