Why Is It Always About You



{Photos via Studded Hearts, Julia Trotti, We Heart It}

I woke up late today. My stomach feels weird and my hair is flat. Thank goodness it's Friday.

Remember that person who made you miserable and you thought you couldn't live without? Well look at you, happy, living and shit. La-de-da. As clique as it sounds, maybe it's really not you it's them.

"Sometimes it seems as if the world is full of selfish people who have no thought for others except how to use them for their own purposes. Their needs are more important than anyone elses', and they expect to be accommodated in all things. They can't seem to see the bigger picture, or to comprehend why they might not always come first. Their expectations have an almost childlike quality, yet they can be tyrannically outraged or pitifully depressed when thwarted. Often, we give in to them because it seems safer not to rock their boat."

  1. love that cat picture. I hope your day gets better. its friday--and fridays are usually amazing because they lead to sleepy, late Saturdays and sometimes pizza. I'm sure your hair is flat, but at least its not pink or gone, right? :P Although, I bet you would look amazing with pink hair.

    And even if it is about them--its still hard to loose someone, even if they turned out to be a different person then you thought they were.

  3. Hey there :) I woke up feeling really bad as well; raw throat, dry eyes and super flat and unbecoming hair. I think that sometimes when people give me hell, 80% of the time I appease them just to get them to stop, but I've learned to pick my battles. I'll stand up for myself when it counts, because I'd be setting a precedent of allowing people to walk all over me. I hope the weekend is much kinder to you - a chance for you to recharge those batteries!

  11. I know so many people like this, I usually just try to keep my distance from them! Those first two photos are making my longing for the warm weather to hurry up & return even more intense, ahh, I so want to be sitting on a beach somewhere! Hope your weekend makes up for today! :)

  12. I agree, it's them! It can happen in any type of relationship--I have a lot of ex-friends out there.

    I hope you felt batter as the day wore on. Every once in a while I'll feel like total crap in the morning, but then feel so much better after calling in sick. :}

    Have a great weekend!

  20. Gee, straight to the point and stab to the heart.

    Well, at least not mine. I guess we are all surrounded by people like that huh? It's all about them, them and them. At times I found myself asking when is it MY turn?

  23. "... Maybe it's really not you it's them."

    I know the feeling. Although I'm not sure if we had the same shit going on but I did have and have thought about this. Ending something, which I thought would break my world apart, was pretty hard; but in the end, seeing things from a different POV now and knowing you're in doing good, happy and just great makes it all worth leaving. :)

  24. Uh huh. I'm sure it is them! =D I love all the pics you shared =) Beautiful.

  25. PS - I have a few good friends who regularly joke that it's all about them and of course I respond by saying how frustrating it is when people don't recognize that it's all about me. :)
