It’s funny how many people feel sorry for you or pitty you because you have a hard life or have a different life.
I don’t want pitty just treat me the same as you do another friend or stranger. I am happy yet tired excited and driven and can still laugh and share a joke. Hell I’m still me!
Yes you see me with four children and two children in wheelchairs and you put your head down. Please don’t !
Just smile please
Just be yourself please
For I don’t want pitty
I just want to be like you or them I just want to be
My life revolves around my family yes, because I make the decision to be hands on and totally involved. I love them with everything I have and am and I want them to be with me for as long as possible. I don’t wake up regretting or feeling sorry for myself. I get excited about birthdays and Christmas. Family is family whatever package you arrive in.
I will say that sometimes it would be nice for people to see through my eyes when they are having a crappy day and bitching about parking or something silly. Have a think about the fact that someone out there is losing a loved one today or having to make a hard life or death decision, managing someone’s seizures , giving cpr to there child. (Which I was doing back when A was four years old every few days) and it’s one of the worst things to ever have to do and experience.
On my hard days I always think of someone else having a worse day and that’s what keeps me stronger.
Please don’t take this the wrong way as I want you all to be able to whinge and have a the right to cry and sook but everyday be thankful for the ease of life you lead. The get up and eat get dressed go to the toilet life and leave to go to work. The basic things we all take for granted. And remember when your child is at a sports carnival it’s not the place they come that should be celebrated its the fact they could do it!
Be thankful for what you have but please don’t pitty me because this is the best thing that ever happened to me.
