It Just Gets To Me

I think sometimes, ok maybe more than sometimes, I take things too personal. Things that don't even affect me in any way, shape or form. But I let them get to me. I let them bother me too much.

I think because I feel for the person it is happening to. My heart goes out to them. Not saying I personally know how every situation feels, but I feel the hurt or anger or frustration or whatever the feeling.

I don't know why I let this happen. Half the time the other person doesn't even care. Or they may care, but they don't get as worked up as I do. They just blow it off.

Why do I let myself get like this? Why do I let things bother me so much? Maybe because others don't always stand up for themselves. Or speak up when they should. They just let it slide.

It is a fault of mine for sure. I let it eat at me. I think about it way too much. I get too upset about it. I don't know how to let it go. It leads to a grudge or dislike of that person.

Stupid I know. But it is me. I try not to be that way, but I am. I kind of always have been.

I wish I could tell the story, but family and friends read this...so that prevents me. It would be calling people out and I just won't do that for the world to see.

So, I wrote this post to get some frustration out. I have no one around to talk to at the moment. The ones that I could talk to aren't around. Hubs is working. Sister is having a date night. Mom has already heard me bitch. So that leaves me with you all. To listen to me bitch, about something that I didn't even go into detail about. Sorry girls...I wish I could.

Any of you get like this? Do you take things to heart even when it doesn't involve you? If so, how do you get over it? How do you forget about it and not let it ruin the way you think about someone?

I have had situations like this that didn't involve me AT ALL but made me so angry and upset. All I can say is give it time... time heals all but it is hard not to have a negative thought towards the people involved...

You have to just learn to let those things go or they will just continue to eat you up inside. It's not worth it.

It's so hard to not let things get to you. Especially if it involves some one you care about. It is hard not to hold a grudge and to not like certain people based on how they treat your loved ones. I feel you! I hope that you can find peace. Keep your chin up!
