    True. And then comes a time when one realizes the price is too high, and they don't even know who they are anymore, because they're too busy being whoever anybody and everybody wants them to be.

    I don't have normalcy. Just facts! Which most people know here anyway, but don't want to be viewed as seeking pity. It just sounds bad when it all adds up. Mom deceased, estranged from sister and her father. Husband out-of-picture. One sibling missing since 1987. So I'm down to the people who actually matter to me, i.e., remaining sister, daughter (well, her husband, his brother and their parents are amazing people. I just don't see them enough to even call them 'friend'), and best friend. The people I live with, yes. I could call friend. But they're not on my short list of people I love with all my heart.

    I couldn't agree more. I feel many people fall into this trap and before they know it they have lost themselves and who they really are in an attempt to please others. That is why I gave up trying to be anything other then who I am for anyone. Take me or leave me this is who I am.

    i don't have "normalcy" either......but that doesn't stop my from trying! and you didn't mention "loving with all your heart" you posted about approval and what other people may think of you. for example, my husband has an uncle that i would hate to disappoint, not because i see him regularly, or love him with all my heart, but because i have always had a great respect for him and for the way he leads his life. he is one of those people who will ALWAYS do the right thing.

    I don't have any of those people, so - okay I do. But he's a Republican. <falls over midst gales of laughter>

    Re: Like I give a ****

    On a personal level, I've never cared what anyone has thought of me, including family and friends, mainly because they don't see my motivations, and my goals. And it'd be too much to constantly tell them why I do everything I do.

    On a professional level, I want to go into business, and I know that it doesn't matter what I care, I have to look good to everyone all the time. So, I've consciously kind of built my lifestyle in a way that you would want to see in a businessman.

    That's logical. Shows good planning.

    There are too many people on the planet who honestly seem to believe their life is perfect, so now they have to straighten out everybody in earshot. I can't go for that.
