Growing Up

I've finally come to the decision that I'm important. I no longer have to be overly sweet to people who mistreat me. It has taken me over 30 years to realize this fact.

Work has been stressful this year. We have yet another new administrator. Every new boss  who walks through the door feels the need to re-invent the wheel. This is not okay. I now just shut my door and continue to do what is best for my students and me.

I've also eliminated so called friends from my life. People who drain me are not welcome in my life anymore. I refuse to be taken advantage of anymore. If you don't care about me, why should I let you continue to be in my life?

I guess I have grown up. I'm taking responsibility for my own happiness and well being. You're either with me or against me.



  1. Sometimes we've gotta reassess things or take a step back and take a long look.

    I strive to be a better person everyday. But there are people out there that will try our patience. It is what it is.

  2. I took several steps back to look at the entire picture. I didn't like what I saw so I made sweeping changes. I'm glad I did. Life is much better now.

  3. I did that a few years ago, but in my case it was with family. It had to be done, I couldn't keep wondering when the backstabbing was going to happen. I was stressed out constantly. My life is not perfect, but it's a lot better without those people in it.

    Enjoy your new life... :-)

  4. Less stress is always the best outcome. It has to be tough to distance yourself from family. I admire your strength :).
