Decisions ....to be or not to Remain Being....

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams 414-525-0563

  Did you ever notice that there are people in your life...that when THEY want something...they know your number..your cell, your home, your fax,....text...e-mail....front door....carrier pigeon...after all, it IS what is going on in their life...what they need, want, have to have...and NOW  !bitten heart

  Now ....YOU need....an answer, a recipe, a contact for....the name or number of.....an explanation about...and they quickly disappear into the blogosphere....the shadows, sea of abyss...never  only to be heard from again when THEY need, want, have to have.....(I am soooo not talking about the needs of buyers and sellers.)

   Be it resolved in this new year....lots of things are changing....and just like the "Peace on Earth" song....and "Let it begin with me..."

   When you find you are always the giver in the relationship and the "getting" is at will....or not at all...time to re-evaluate your relationships and how much you are willing to continue to give to those who value getting above giving...their needs, business and priorties of whatever nature above whatever you have requested.  I don't like to "meter out" caring..is there a better way...the decision for me, for now, is to change my response....to match the response I didn't get...but did need...did want...did care about...

   Being on the short end more of the time than the long one...not a good thing. Value yourself....and choose how you want to be treated.....the end.

Hi Sally:

I believe that we all know people like that...

Toxic is a good word for it!

Hi Sally, sometimes we allow people to take advantage of us like that.  We can't change them, we can only change ourselves and the way we behave toward them.  All the best!
