FUN FRIDAY (7)
Happy Friday!! :) Welcome to FUN FRIDAY where I reveal something about me, some personal tidbit that will allow my followers to get to know me better. I follow several blogs and I sometimes wonder who the bloggers REALLY are behind the words, so I thought it would be a cool thing to open up a bit and to reveal more about who Karen really is.
Today's tidbit: I give too much of myself sometimes. This is relevant to me today because I have a friend going through a roller coaster relationship, full of crazy ups and super low downs. And I love this friend DEARLY and want to be there for her each step of the way. But it's starting to get me down a little because maybe it's the counselor in me, but I have a hard time not getting sucked in by others' emotions at times. Couple that with the fact that my life is pure INSANITY at the moment and the result is one seriously-stressed Karen.
I think my friend's situation is getting to me so much because I see my past self in her now and I have to wonder why so many of us women base our worth on our romantic relationships. There's so much more to us than being a wife, girlfriend, fiancee, whatever, but it seems like that main relationship can be what makes or breaks our happiness. Maybe it's the nature of women because we tend to place more value on our relationships with loved ones, who knows. But it's really got me thinking that if we spent a little LESS time obsessing about our men, and a little more time focusing on other things that make us happy, we'd be a whole lot happier in the long run.
Anywho... enough thinking for the day. Work is winding down and then it's back to stripping wallpaper and painting. Moving BLOWS, in case you didn't know! Hope you all have a great weekend and I hope all the ladies out there know that they are worth WAY more than one man's opinion. *XOXO*
