You know, no matter what I do it’s wrong. I’m still getting stabbed in the back and probably bad mouthed. People only want me when they need help. Well guess what? I’m tired of giving help and being the nice person. What I really want to do is go and tell these people to go “fly a kite”. Yes I”m being and keeping that nice.
I’m beginning to think I should just tell these people, you made your bed now lie in it. They only contact me when they want something. No one says thank you or even asks how my day is. And most of the time when they do they are being sarcastic (sp) because they already know.
Not to mention people want me (because I guess I know or have the knowledge that they lack) to do things and guess who’s gonna be doing it all? Me. All they want to do is sit back and have an easy trip. I can’t ask them for help because they don’t know or don’t want to do it but want me to do it all the while they sit on their bums and I do all the work.
I’m honestly begining to think my help now is worth something and I just may charge for it and/or limit it. All these years I could not understand and thought it was totally rude when people wanted me to pay for their help. But now I realize why. I always thought that was not the way to do business and I wanted to help people. Well I guess maybe I need to change my ways. Sometimes it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks but they do learn.
Oh, and get this. People actually wonder why I have trust issues with others? ummm… H E L L O !!!!!
